Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging are Among Our Strongest Values
As a law firm, we have lots of commitments. We are committed to our clients, and we are committed to ensuring that all of our lawyers and legal professionals have the opportunity to enjoy fulfilling and meaningful careers. We are also steadfastly committed to promoting diversity, inclusion, and belonging in everything we do. These are among our Firm’s most important values, and they heavily influence all aspects of our practice.
As a lawyer or legal professional, you will feel welcome when choosing a career at Strategic Legal Practices. Not only do we hire lawyers and legal professionals from all backgrounds, but we also firmly believe that promoting and advancing the careers of all of our lawyers and legal professionals serves our clients’ best interests. Diversity is essential for innovation, open-mindedness, and creative problem-solving. These are essential for our client’s success; as such, diversity is a cornerstone of our firm’s success.
Our firm’s commitment to diversity is readily apparent in our attorneys’ traits and backgrounds—although this is ultimately just one measure of inclusiveness out of many. As a result of our commitment to diversity, out of our firm’s 100+ team members:

We promote diversity, inclusion, and belonging at Strategic Legal Practices through a variety of initiatives. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, and we encourage our lawyers and legal professionals to implement our firm’s core values in any way they see fit. Some of our firm’s key diversity initiatives include:
- We actively recruit lawyers and legal professionals of all races, colors, national origins, sexes, genders, gender identities, and sexual preferences.
- We encourage our lawyers and legal professionals to participate and take leadership roles in legal and non-legal organizations that promote diversity and inclusion.
- We conduct training programs focused on diversity and inclusion.
- We encourage our lawyers and legal professionals to pursue ideas both within and outside the firm to promote diversity and inclusion.
While the legal profession is becoming more diverse and inclusive as a whole, it is clear that there is still a long way to go before all lawyers and legal professionals have a true sense of belonging within their chosen careers. At Strategic Legal Practices, we are committed to doing our part. We welcome ideas from our lawyers and legal professionals regardless of the duration of their career or their tenure with the firm. As we continue to grow, we look forward to welcoming more lawyers and legal professionals from more walks of life. We look forward to promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession through various means.
