When we started, the pundits and law firm consultants said that only big firms would succeed and only the biggest of them would thrive. They pointed to the collapse or merger of many of the mid-sized firms that had formerly operated in Philadelphia, our home city. There was little hope that a firm based on our core principles could do more than tread water. It is twenty years later and we are thriving. It hasn't always been easy - there have been sea changes in the legal profession over those years, not to mention in the regional and national economy - but we have kept on our course.Meet Our People
We are not the hammer to whom every problem is a nail. We take pride in our ability to find new ways to advance our clients’ interests.
The intelligence and drive of our people is our most precious asset. We are very selective, hiring at most a handful of lawyers in a year.
We keep a close eye on our clients’ goals and their budgets, and seek out common sense solutions to the most complex legal problems.
We know that good lawyering requires hard work. We have built our firm on our tireless, steadfast devotion to our clients’ objectives.
The law is a profession, not just a business. A successful law practice includes pro bono work and service to our communities.
We practice law with intensity; our sense of humor helps us to keep things in perspective. We are proud of our ability to laugh at ourselves.
People hire us for who we are, not just where we are. We have a national reputation, and clients have engaged us on cases and transactions
all over the country.
