We had planned a post celebrating our one-year launch anniversary; but the unnecessary death of George Floyd in Minneapolis compels us to instead speak out for justice. Both the firm’s founders served in law enforcement, and we appreciate that most people who serve do so honorably with the best intentions. As lawyers, we are also mindful that the justice process must play out for the rule of law to prevail. But police misconduct and biases destroy the trust our justice system requires. It is incumbent on everyone to speak out—loudly—against the abuse of authority. We grieve for Mr. Floyd and too many others to name. We hope firms with bigger voices than ours will join us in calling for accountability.
