Cheryl Nicolson founded the firm on a simple principle; to serve clients in only the areas where we have substantial experience and provide legal service that is better and more cost-effective than that provided by our competitors.
While an alumna of both large and mid-sized national and regional law firms, Ms. Nicolson decided she could best deliver outstanding, focused service to clients in a more cost-effective manner, by starting her own firm with hand-picked, top-notch lawyers who share her professional values and commitment to client service.
The firm is delivering on that commitment to client service by aggressively focusing on two fronts. First, we believe we are never too experienced to learn something new. We keep abreast of legal and technological developments, constantly on the look-out for creative applications that provide our clients with strategic legal advantages and better service. Second, we control overhead and costs. This allows us to control rates, resulting in more cost-effective service for our clients.Our values as a firm reflect who we are as individuals and greatly influence the type of work we do and who we work for. At the core of our firm is a simple set of beliefs that guide our service:
We believe in building long-term relationships with our clients that enable us to fully understand their legal needs, the industries in which they operate and their goals and vision for the future.
We believe that it is the knowledge that flows from these relationships combined with our legal skill and insight that enables us to succeed in achieving our clients’ goals.
We value honesty and candor in our communications with clients and others.
We are committed to excellence in the practice of law and committed to the service of our clients.
We are smart, competitive, capable and pragmatic; dedicated to serving our clients with creative solutions and cost-effective results.
It is the needs of our clients that direct our actions.
