We have both a cost structure and a partnership system that allows us to put our clients first in all instances and to offer a reasonable and rational rate structure, including fee arrangements not based on hourly billing. Unlike many firms, we do not reward our attorneys for "originations" or for hoarding work. Instead, we reward them for teamwork and collaboration, and our clients know that they will always get the right lawyer for the right job.
Pierce Atwood is committed to reaching out to the underserved members of the many communities in which we live and practice. That is why the firm expects each of its attorneys to provide 50 hours of pro bono service every year, and why so many of them continually meet and exceed that expectation.
