We have risen to the gold level in The State Bar of California's DEI Leadership Seal program which recognizes legal employers with California attorneys that commit to and implement research-driven actions that further workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We aim to deeply root our commitment to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) in every facet of our organization, beginning with our guiding policies, procedures, and processes.
