As the founding partners of Culhane Meadows, our collective vision is to offer clients exceptional and efficient legal services from partner-level attorneys who possess valuable training and experience from large law firms or in-house legal departments of respected corporations.
Culhane Meadows proudly matches or exceeds the standards of large traditional law firms in both experience and depth of knowledge of our partners. However, we are distinguished from the “Big Law” business model because we remain intently focused on efficient delivery of legal services by leveraging emerging technology, while avoiding the burdens of extravagant office space, fancy artwork on the walls, marble columns, redundant support staff, numerous layers of management bureaucracy, and other expenses that add no value or benefit to the client.
We are dedicated to a deliberate collaborative philosophy within the practice of law because we understand that every client matter, regardless of size or industry, exists within the framework of a larger set of objectives — market demands, cultural diversity, financial limitations, social/marketing goals, or regulatory requirements. To address these diverse challenges, Culhane Meadows is committed to cultivating and maintaining cross-disciplinary, client-centered teams of lawyers with extensive legal and real-world business experience. In furtherance of our focus on efficiency, our firm is comprised entirely of partner-level attorneys who get the job done right the first time. We do not employ inexperienced associate attorneys who require on-the-job training on the client’s dime.
Though each of our attorneys is a highly-qualified practitioner in his or her own right, Culhane Meadows believes that the greatest efficiency and most favorable results for our clients are accomplished through collaborative teamwork among our partners. Simply put, Culhane Meadows believes our attorneys are stronger and more effective when working together. The consequence is a highly-efficient team of experienced and knowledgeable attorneys who arrived at Culhane Meadows in search of a better, more flexible and more enjoyable way to practice law. We are proud of our focus on building a solid — yet adaptable — foundation that provides for intentional and strategic growth, long term industry endurance, and a better coalescing of each attorneys’ professional needs with the business objectives of the Firm. The collective result is a team of passionate lawyers who enjoy what they do and who place utmost importance on the unique needs of their clients.
We hope you find our online materials informative and we invite you to contact us if you have any questions about Culhane Meadows. We look forward to sharing our vision with you on why we believe our Firm truly delivers on its promise of offering attorneys a better way to practice law.
