Early on the Firm adopted an official “CREDO” as follows:
- To uphold and maintain the principle on which the Firm was established – namely, that an institution founded upon ability, integrity, and professional skill will endure.
- To observe with great fidelity the ethical standards of the legal profession.
- To be constantly aware that the practice of law is not a business but a noble profession and that the prime goal of the Firm is to provide high quality legal services to its clients at reasonable cost.
- To recognize that the legal profession is imbued with a spirit of public service and to encourage the participation of the lawyers of the Firm in public, professional, educational, charitable, cultural, and religious endeavors.
