Diversity Action Plan

Our Diversity Action Plan (DAP) encourages our attorneys to engage in activities that develop their cultural competence. These activities lead to greater dexterity around different cultures, social groups, and ethnicities.

Professional growth opportunities for all our attorneys in an inclusive work environment — this is what drives us.
