On a daily basis, the firm achieves excellence in the practice of law, emphasizing practical problem solving, high-quality legal work, and cost-effective management of client matters. We endeavor to be skilled client counselors as well as lawyers. Our approach to the practice and our commitment to quality of life for attorneys and staff members combine to create a stimulating, informal, and humane work environment. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.

Team Approach, with Close Client Connections
The culture at HCMP is distinctive. Instead of hierarchy, our partners, associates, paralegals, and staff work in an environment of mentorship and cooperation. Because our firm operates without layers of bureaucracy, we maintain direct communication and close working relationships with clients. Our flexibility enables us to assemble the right team from different practice areas to address legal needs efficiently and effectively. We offer the strength and depth of a large firm, without sacrificing the responsiveness and personal service you would expect from a smaller firm.

Confident, Strong, Proactive
HCMP attorneys are known and respected for their expertise and advocacy. It's what our clients expect, and it's what we deliver, consistently and professionally. HCMP's past, current, and future success is based on a thorough understanding of our clients' needs for legal services.

International Affiliation
