Prior to being accepted into Primerus, our firm underwent a very strict and confidential screening process which involved interviews with Judges, other lawyers, clients and our insurance carriers. In fact, you may have been one of the references contacted during this process. While we have always been an AV rated law firm, as well as a firm listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, the Primerus screening process looked at those measures as only the starting point for its review.
Primerus invites only those lawyers who have committed themselves and their firms to six principles of exceptional professional service. Those principles are:
- Irreproachable integrity guiding decisions large and small;
- Civility in dealings with the bench and bar;
- Excellence of work;
- Reasonable fees;
- Continuous pursuit of legal education; and
- Community involvement.
Primerus members believe that a livable, just society depends on the rule of law, and that lawyers have a duty to protect and defend the role of law in society.
It has only been through our ability to serve you that we have garnered the reputation sufficient to have achieved this honor and distinction. It is in that spirit that we thank you for your business and hope that you will share our enthusiasm about this proud accomplishment.
