The View is Different from the Summit
Summit Law Group was born of the desire to do better – for clients as well as lawyers.
Leaving behind the limitations built into Big Law – high overhead requiring rigid pricing, bureaucracy born of extreme hierarchy, prestige sometimes at the expense of purpose – our founders created a firm guided by a single principle: client service.
This unrelenting focus on client service has not only enabled our lawyers to bring the finest legal services to clients at market-leading prices, it has nurtured a culture which is as nimble as it is collegial. Looking ahead, we know these qualities will be essential as we navigate unprecedented changes in the ways business is done and legal services are delivered.

Our mission today remains the same as it was at our founding: to think creatively and to proactively formulate and pursue the most effective, efficient solutions to clients’ legal needs with small, dedicated teams. This is The Summit Difference.
Everyone at Summit Law Group is a legal professional who shares in the firm’s success. As a result, every member of the Summit team feels a personal sense of ownership and accountability. Even as we embrace necessary changes, this innovative model continues to deliver successes for clients across the full range of complex legal needs.
