Bringing Together a Strong Team to Help Our Clients
Our firm recognizes the power of diversity and we actively recruit lawyers and staff from different backgrounds with individual perspectives. These diverse individuals create a powerful team with a reputation for being innovative, responsive and effective.
Why Diversity Benefits Our Clients
A diverse work environment is inclusive and fulfilling to the people who work at Owen Gleaton. The collegial, positive environment is one of the reasons our attorneys remain at Owen Gleaton throughout their career which provides our clients with consistency in representation by lawyers who are intimately familiar with the businesses’ operations and goals of their clients and can respond effectively and efficiently to crucial issues when they arise.
Clients benefit from the different perspectives and approaches of our legal counselors. We regularly collaborate with each other to resolve complex legal problems and develop innovative solutions. Individual lawyers view the cases from different angles based upon their own diverse backgrounds and experiences, offering differing insights and viewpoints. The result is a legal group that more fully serves our clients’ best interests.
Support of Organizations that Promote Our Core Values
As individuals, each or our attorneys brings his or her own unique, positive approach to the practice of law. As a team we deliver exceptional representation to our clients.
Our vision of inclusiveness and diversity expands beyond our firm’s walls. Individually and as a firm, we support diverse organizations and charities that promote our core value of diversity. In 1985, our partner Seaborn Jones helped start the Atlanta Bar Association’s Minority & Diversity Clerkship Program. Owen Gleaton continues to participate every year in this important program to increase diversity in the Atlanta legal community.
