Our Core Values

Client-Focused Approach

Beginning with the initial client-intake meeting and continuing through the closing of the transaction, or alternatively, trial and any appeals, we communicate with clients in an open and honest manner to understand their goals and to ensure that they understand their options. We have great flexibility in how we staff matters and are able to avoid rotating attorneys and sending multiple attendees to meetings, depositions, hearings and court appearances. Our attorneys work together in a cohesive environment, drawing upon each other's experience and knowledge, to develop creative solutions for our clients. Knowing each other so well allows us to quickly pinpoint exactly which colleagues are the best fit for each individual client and project.

Collaborative Environment

We have created a collaborative team environment where our attorneys brainstorm together and think creatively.  We strive to implement innovative and resourceful solutions to our clients’ problems—large and small.  Unhindered by billable hour requirements, our attorneys perform the tasks that are most useful and critical for their clients, not the most billable hour-intensive.  In addition, a unique quality about the partners of our firm is that they have been not only colleagues but close friends for over a decade.  The gamesmanship and competition present among attorneys at many large firms, which detracts from the true goal of providing first-rate client service, is simply not present here.  The opposite is true—our long history of working together as a cohesive team allows us to capitalize on each attorney’s strengths, which increases our productivity and efficiency.

Commitment to Excellence

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional legal services that clients expect from nationally ranked law firms but are able to provide such services in a more cost-efficient manner with better customer service.  Our lawyers hail from the top law schools in the country, and are committed to the highest level of ethics and standards of professionalism.  We are adept at using the latest technological advances and software.  We produce work product that rivals that of any large firm in the world.  What impresses our clients is how reasonable their bills are for these top-notch services — our attorneys spend a judicious amount of time on matters, at equitable rates.

Community Involvement

Actively supporting community organizations is of the utmost importance to us.  Our attorneys have engaged in a high level of volunteerism and selfless devotion, dedicating a significant amount of time and effort to various organizations.  Our Community Page provides information on some of the organizations in which our attorneys have intimate involvement and discusses the capacities in which our attorneys serve.  These include KidWorks, the Boys and Girls Club, and the Constitutional Rights Foundation-Orange County.  Supporting the community, especially its youth, is an important value we are able to make time for through the implementation of our other core values, such as our firm-wide efficiency measures.
