Building Renovation Updates
August 23, 2012
We've been anxious to update our clients and colleagues on the progress we're making at our new office location. One thing that we're committed to is keeping a low cost structure so that we can maintain one of the key tenets to the firm's approach – which is to carve out fair and equitable compensation for our attorneys while keeping billable rates reasonable for our clients. Solid legal competence doesn't need to be associated with high overhead costs. The new building location is cost-effective for us and easy to get to for clients. It also offers visibility – something else we were after.
This week we put a wrap on the upstairs attorney offices – painting, flooring, and cleaning were accomplished. Last week, the great team from LT Land & Tree scaled back the trees and shrubs that had grown up and were covering our signs. Some of the beautiful trees on our lot also got a hair cut – like the giant Sycamore on the South-west corner of the building itself. Such a beautiful tree deserves a healthy haircut once in a while. Now that the trees are trimmed, it's time to change the signage. Look for an update on that in the near future! !
