Commitment

diversity

A vital aspect of the firm's commitment to diversity is our outreach to the community. Many of our attorneys, paralegals, and staff are actively involved with organizations that represent the unique interests and concerns of minorities, women, children/youth, veterans and the economically disadvantaged. We also have developed educational programs for our clients and the community on issues such as immigration, affirmative action and the multinational workforce.

Notable among our many volunteers, Waller's John Park and Vinh Duong currently serve as Fellows on the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), an organization created for the specific purpose of advancing diversity in the legal profession.
