All clients equal.
Middle market. Corporation. Small business. Solopreneur. Individual. Regardless of size or circumstance, all clients are treated with equal dignity and respect— ensuring all matters, whether complex or commonplace, are handled with our full attention and to the best of our ability.
Value in community.
In the places we call home, we recognize our responsibility as professionals to serve those in need. We use our skills and resources to build stronger communities.
Honor and ethics.
In all of our dealings inside and out of the office, we seek to operate with integrity, professionalism, and honesty. We adhere to our own established high standards, in addition to the code of conduct promulgated by the Virginia State Bar — because integrity matters.
Civility and cooperation.
We behave respectfully. We endeavor to treat others with kindness and civility. We cultivate patience and maintain an open door to maximize the skills and capabilities of all of our lawyers and staff. We aspire to work for and with clients who share our values.
5. Team Work
We rise together.
Every attorney must be committed to the common work of the firm. All of our professionals are expected to be responsive and available to our client needs and to assist other attorneys when necessary. We believe that when we all work together, we all rise together.
A balanced life.
We work hard. But we recognize our colleagues, including attorneys and staff, have families, passions and other responsibilities to which they are committed. We encourage and support a true and healthy balance in work, family, and community activities.
