Accountability

Cognizant of our commitment to donate to our community, we keep ourselves accountable by tracking our costs, expenses, and profits. We employ an independent third party auditor to measure our net profits, and we use that figure to estimate how much we would donate each year.

How We Calculate Our Donations

In a nutshell, we take our revenue every year, and minus our costs from it. That would give us our yearly profits. We take these profits and divide it in half: One half is donated to community groups and charities, and the other half is re-invested in the firm or goes to its staff and lawyers.

COSTS: ​We strive to keep our costs reasonable. Within those costs are items like (1) salaries for our staff (which are kept at an average level), (2) overhead costs like for rent and utilities, and (3) operating costs like for equipment and advertising.
