Our actions are based on our core values: Teamwork, Reputation, and Client Service. Our attorneys are committed to these values, and it’s reflected in our relationship with clients, philanthropic work, leadership roles in the industry, and diversity initiatives.
Teamwork happens with open minded sharing of ideas with the focus on reliability/accountability from internally motivated people who take initiative and are proactive.
Our reputation is based on treating all people with respect in all settings particularly with professionalism in the practice of law.
To value client service, we identify the different and specific needs and goals of our clients, and we are responsive to those needs while we build genuine personal relationships.
The management team at CSH Law actively nurtures the professional growth of our attorneys—and it shows. Attorneys serve as leaders in their respective communities through involvement in professional, civic, and nonprofit organizations.
Within the firm, attorneys take advantage of ample opportunities to grow and develop as leaders:
The Women’s Initiative empowers our women attorneys to discuss and act on issues that are important to them. The group holds an annual retreat and events throughout the year.
Junior-level attorneys who show leadership skills are elected to the Associates Committee, which has regular representation at Management Committee meetings. The chair and co-chair of the committee are elected by their peers.
The Diversity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to assess the firm’s diversity efforts and implement new initiatives, including the active recruitment of attorneys and staff through minority job fairs and at historically black colleges and universities.
