When I was a young associate in a large law firm, a wise managing partner once said, “do the right thing and the money will follow.” Those words still resonate with me. While all firms experience financial ups and downs, putting ethics first will pay off in the long run. More importantly, they serve as a guidepost for what matters more than anything—our reputations. We forget sometimes that it’s an honor to do what we do for a living. People come to us in their time of need. Sometimes they’ve made their own messes; other times they are the victims of false claims or unfortunate circumstances. Either way, clients put their confidence in us and look to us to guide them to more stable ground.
