Harris Beach LLP has a very progressive vision statement. Diversity, balance in life, promotion of education, adoption of change, and commitment to public welfare are core values at the firm. Attorneys and administrative staff members belong to diverse backgrounds and ethnicities and enrich the firm’s legal perspective with their varied experiences. The firm benefits with this enrichment process as it is better able to understand and deal with the legal issues of its diverse client base.
The commitment to public welfare is another distinguishing feature at Harris Beach LLP; the attorneys work untiringly to give back to the community by serving on the board of hospitals, museums, schools, and charitable organizations. They organize fundraisers and donate money to help indigent people; moreover, they provide pro bono legal services at federal, state, and local courts to legally assist clients who cannot afford a lawyer otherwise such as children of domestic abuse, poor people wrongly convicted of crimes, immigrants, etc.
