At Stokes Lawrence, we're proud of our congenial relationships and the respect our employees show to each other. Maintaining an atmosphere of openness and tolerance is fundamental to our culture.
We embrace the diverse backgrounds of all our employees. Each individual's unique perspective is a valued contribution toward our common goal of providing clients with exceptional service. As part of our commitment to promoting diversity within our firm, we have a standing Diversity Committee with both lawyers and staff serving as members. The committee spearheads many of our formal diversity initiatives, which are designed to promote the hiring and retention of diverse employees to better reflect our broader community and to foster an atmosphere of inclusiveness. In addition to encouraging diverse applicants to apply for open positions, we ask the Minority Bar Associations to circulate notice of any attorney job openings to their memberships.
Our commitment to diversity is reflected in the demographics of our firm:
To encourage diversity in the legal profession, we support several initiatives that offer access to education to diverse students.
