Our Guiding Principles

We insist on integrity and pursue excellence. We want our team to be known for their honesty and the high quality of their legal work.

We seek practical, common-sense solutions. Many of us grew up on farms and our roots are deep in rural life. We share a down-to-earth approach to the work we do.

We love and respect people. Valuing others means we seek first to understand, then be understood. We foster an environment where all can contribute, innovate and excel.

We are people of faith. Our service orientation springs from a believe in God and his time-honored wisdom. It’s our desire to bring light, mercy and grace to the work we find before us.

We share a love for agriculture, rural life and farm families. Our farm-roots feed our desire to defend agriculture and serve those working to feed, fuel and clothe the world.
