At Butler, service, teamwork and principles are not mere words. They’re who we are and what we do. Service is what we bring to our clients, to one another, and to the community at large. Teamwork, too, describes the way we interact with one another. And our seven guiding principles define how we serve, and how we work together, 100% of the time. Community is also important. How do we define the Butler community? It isn’t a way of speaking or dressing. Nor is it a boundary or location. Our community, in the sense we mean it, is defined by common principles, common goals and common purposes. And, our focus is on integrity. Our goal is fulfilling the legal needs of our clients. Our purpose is building and sustaining a professional practice at the highest level. Moreover, the Butler community includes receptionists, bookkeepers, assistants, paralegals and our entire administrative staff. And best of all, if we succeed, the Butler community includes our clients. Butler embraces diversity in our nation, in our communities, and in our hiring practices. Why is diversity important in the workplace? Why do we embrace it as a fundamental objective? Why is it inherently good for people from varying backgrounds to work together? We believe when people who are diverse work together, their shared tasks become the things that bind them. The work at hand, and the collaboration of bringing it to a successful end, creates an improved community and a higher quality work product for our clients. In that sense, diversity dissolves differences. And, in the process, it enriches our lives and opens our minds. Butler is also committed to charitable giving and aiding others who need our support. This is more than charity, more than philanthropy. It requires some measure of personal sacrifice – sharing one’s time and energy to benefit others and, ultimately, to benefit all. That’s why we encourage our lawyers and staff to be leaders and volunteers in community projects and professional organizations. We also believe that our participation provides a demonstrable benefit to our clients.
