One of the great things about starting from scratch is getting to start from scratch. Before we had an office, letterhead, or a phone number – we had each other. Our firm is built on the belief in our team.
Our office is an extension of our belief in each other. Meghan took the picture below. She posted it on twitter with the caption “best partners ever”.
This picture was taken late in the afternoon. We had just gotten back from a mediation in the morning. A mediation that we had spent hundreds of hours preparing for. The case is high profile.
We are discussing what worked. What didn’t work. What needs to be done and how to do it. We are giving the case our best. We are arguing. In the process of arguing, we’re working to build the strongest argument possible for our case.
We don’t always agree. In fact, we often disagree. Disagreement is what happens whenever two or more lawyers are within speaking distance of each other.
Our firm mission is “to do great things”.
What we agree on is that walls between us are a barrier to doing great things.
