Customer-focus.

Our mission is to think creatively, to proactively formulate and pursue the most effective, efficient solutions to our clients’ legal needs with small, dedicated teams.

Inclusive and collegial structure. Everyone at Summit Law Group is a legal professional who shares in the firm’s success, and our attorneys are equity owners of our business. We do not have corner offices and everyone (attorneys and non-attorneys) are provided an equal sized office. As a result, every member of the Summit team feels a personal sense of ownership and accountability.

Efficiency and nimbleness. We have eliminated the inefficiencies inherent in traditional law firms – such as hidden charges, rigid cost structures, and leveraged hierarchy – in order to focus exclusively on our clients. Our innovative model has been proven by a long, successful track record that covers a broad variety of complex legal issues.

Flexibility. Summit invests in our attorneys long term and is open to flexible arrangements - we recognize that everyone has different periods of their career where they need to spend more or less time on their work and in achieving work-life balance.
