"Our focus has always been to provide the best working environment for our employees. One example is our Professional Development program - which we believe is unique in the legal field. The goal of the program is for each of our employees to achieve the most rewarding legal career for themselves. We help them accomplish this by identifying the keys to success and then offering specialized training, support and opportunities in these areas. Success looks different to different people, so we also offer alternative career paths for attorneys to fit their own goals and life circumstances, whether that is a path to equity membership or an alternative path."

Attorneys and staff regularly hold national, regional, and local leadership positions in defense organizations and bar associations, as well as legal administrator, legal administrative assistant, paralegal, and legal marketing associations.“
