"With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility"

Posted by Brooke Smith | Oct 28, 2020 | 0 Comments

We all recognize this quote from the uncle of your favorite web slinger, Spider-Man, but this isn't just a pop culture idea or even a new one. From Winston Churchill to Voltaire to the French National Convention in 1973, some version of this saying has circulated throughout history. You can even find it in the Bible. But what does it mean for a growing law practice?

 At Litchford, Pearce & Associates, PLLC, we see this quote as an opportunity to challenge public opinion as many people criticize attorneys for being more focused on money and power than the clients they serve. LPA is determined to change that perception. For our firm, this quote is an extension of the Golden Rule which happens to be one of our core values. It's simple. Treat others the way you would want to be treated. This means respecting the court, our clients, other attorneys and each other. But we think it goes even further than that. It also means caring for our community by listening and providing a voice for those without one. It means supporting local non-profit organizations who assist those currently experiencing difficult circumstances. It means tirelessly advocating for justice for all people. That's the LPA Way.

 Because service is so important to our firm, we actively encourage our team to find opportunities to assist in our communities. So how do we put words into action? Some of us serve or have served on boards like Family Promise of Greater Chattanooga, McKamey Animal Shelter, Chattanooga Audubon Society, and Boyd Buchanan School. Others donate funds to assist organizations like Family Promise, Compassion International, Chattanooga Room in the Inn, Needy Child Fund, and East Ridge Fire Department. Then we have those that are willing to volunteer their time to provide legal and other services to those in need.

 As a small but growing law firm, our involvement has a limited impact. So we challenge you, Chattanooga and Colorado Springs area law firms, to join us as we do our part to transform our communities. Let's use this year of 20/20 vision to recognize what issues need to be resolved and use our resources to create solutions. Serve. Advocate. Donate. And do it all with respect, integrity and compassion.
