Legal and Business Strategists
Yes, it's a tagline but it truly defines who we are and how we approach our work. We strive to be more than great lawyers. We work hard to get to know our clients and understand their needs and goals. Our primary objective is to solve problems and make things happen for our clients. Simply put, our success is based on our client's success.
Client satisfaction is our #1 priority; therefore, the Firm established the Client CARE Center to handle all client concerns, suggestions and answer any questions. All inquiries to the CARE Center are responded to within 24 hours.
Creating a team that reflects diversity of gender, race, and ethnicity helps us reach our most important goal: service to our clients, our communities, and the legal profession. Thus, we actively recruit qualified minority and women candidates through our general recruiting and interview process, and participation in programs specifically geared to the recruitment, hiring, and retention of qualified minority attorneys and staff.
Our attorneys and staff contribute hundreds of hours to civic, charitable and community organizations. Our attorneys handle pro bono cases through the Volunteer Lawyers Project administered by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, and regularly serve as pro bono counsel to non-profit organizations. Our firm regularly contributes financially and in-kind services to various causes. We are committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work.
