Diversity in Our Workplace

Equality and inclusion are important at LAWO and ABLE. By bringing together a broad mix of professionals with unique perspectives, we provide our clients and the communities we serve with a broader and more positive experience. We have established a Diversity Team whose mission is to address areas of diversity and serve as a forum through which all staff may safely address individual areas of diversity. The Diversity Committee works to ensure that the law firms continue to address diversity at every stage of service delivery, leadership development, and program management, working toward measurable and positive results.

Diversity Statement

ABLE and LAWO strive to be law firms where all people care about, listen to and respect each other regardless of race, religion, color, creed, sex, age, marital status, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, disability, handicap, citizenship, military status, veteran status, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, political affiliation, union activity, or any basis prohibited by law. ABLE has as its goal the participation of people of color, women, LGBT individuals, people who have a disability, minorities, and the poor in program planning, operation and evaluation, and on the governing board and on advisory committees.

Our vision is to create an environment that is inclusive, respectful and equitable, drawing upon the strength of the diversity of our staff in order to provide our clients and diverse communities with culturally sensitive and competent services. We believe our clients recognize diversity and inclusion as critical to the level of service we provide. We believe our success depends on the quality and performance of all our staff and we value and appreciate the individuality, diversity and creativity that each employee brings to our firms.
