Newsletter: 025 | Inspiration


We were recently asked why we started the firm.  Here's part of our answer:

After several years working with entrepreneurs, we were inspired by their passion for their work and their willingness to take risks to accomplish their dreams.  Like them, we had big ambitions for what we wanted to achieve in life, both professionally and personally.  Charting our own path as lawyers by starting our own firm fit well with those ambitions.  We decided it was finally time to take the leap when the confidence to chase our ambitions overcame the fear, which in large part is thanks to the example and support provided by our clients.
