INTEGRITY IS DOING THE RIGHT THING, EVEN WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING.
As we get towards the end of another year, the awards season for lawyers rolls around. Some of the awards are fluff, but the Super Lawyers voting is actually voted on by your peers in the Bar of Georgia, so it’s nice to have been chosen as one of the Top 100 Lawyers in the State for the fifth year in a row. It feels pretty great considering we have 31,499 lawyers in the state, and I was always picked last on the football team in middle school. It begs the questions though: So what does it mean? For me it comes down to doing the right thing every single time. There is a great quote I have on my wall: “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no
one is watching.” Practicing law that way consistently as I pass my 20-year anniversary as a lawyer has paid off in the form of satisfied clients and respectful peers. We have always stuck to our policy in smaller cases of never taking a fee larger than our client takes home, even when it costs us money based on the time we put into the case. Other firms just don’t care and put themselves first. Integrity is expensive, but so worth it. On our larger cases, we have always been transparent with the fact that while heavy litigation might take up the gross settlement, sometimes it costs the client money and only benefits the firm.
Over the years the number of lawyers and clients who have referred friends and family to us has grown, and it is the backbone of the firm. It allows us to not cheapen our profession by advertising. We could not do it without you, our clients, so I say THANK YOU for allowing me the privilege of being your lawyer. - Christopher Simon
