Why Do You Do What You Do?

“People. I love what I do because of the people; the clients, the potential clients, the employees, the vendors, the competitors, they all motivate me.”

I am a firm believer in our people; I believe that we have the BEST staff possible, not just for any law firm, but ANY business. They work with a purpose, and they are passionate about what they do and how they do it. Without our people, I genuinely feel like we would be like most businesses that struggle to find their identity; our identity is our people.

I appreciate all of our clients and potential clients because I understand that there is an overwhelming amount of attorneys available to hire. I know that behind every “client” is a person who needs help, who needs guidance and protection in one of their most significant times of need.

I am confident that the thousands of people that have decided to trust Nave Law Firm to represent them are not misplaced.  It makes me even more determined to show the power of what we do by striving for the best possible result after every case.  My goal is to make sure that all of our clients leave the firm with the peace of mind that we protected, advocated, and worked hard for them.

I appreciate all of our vendors that ensure we have all the products and services needed to ensure we provide the best for our employees and clients.

I also appreciate our competitors; they motivate me to reach the highest standards. Competition ensures we are innovative and that we continue to provide an excellent place for our employees to work and grow. Clients, competitors, employees, and vendors, I realize every day how much I love what I do.  That’s why this is an experience that can’t be replicated anywhere else.
