ESF cultivates a friendly and collaborative culture geared toward prioritizing low employee turnover. We selectively hire people who are a good fit long term, and we seek out highly-qualified candidates who wish to work in an environment that values teamwork and that focuses on providing high-quality legal services in a cost-effective manner. Our high retention rate is critical to building strong relationships with our clients and ensures that the same core team of attorneys and staff serves our clients over many years.  The firm is committed to the growth and development of its employees, and we enthusiastically foster creativity and camaraderie. We are proud that our culture encompasses the following values:


We hire the best and the brightest!  Our employees are motivated self-starters who are looking for innovative ways to advance the goals of our clients, colleagues, and the firm.


Our team is highly adaptive. We frequently analyze and adjust our approaches and procedures in light of changes in the industry and in the law. ESF encourages the professional growth and skill development of employees by providing extensive and ongoing in-house training and opportunities to attend seminars and professional conferences.


Employees often work together to get the job done for our clients. We are always open to suggestions that help to streamline procedures, promote business development, or improve our working environment.


Our firm culture prioritizes work-life balance. We offer remote work opportunities, a casual dress code, and flexible scheduling.


Employees are more than just coworkers. Individuals treat each other with respect and kindness, and the firm culture encourages meaningful interactions between colleagues. We work hard, but we also schedule multiple firm-sponsored social events throughout the year.
