Clarke Silverglate provides Corporate America, insurance companies, and insureds unmatched value in resolving legal disputes by combining big firm capabilities and technology with small firm responsiveness and efficiency.
To expand our reputation as one of the preeminent civil litigation firms in the State of Florida and beyond.
Ethically Grounded. A lawyer is a representative of clients, an officer of the legal system, and a public citizen having special responsibility for the quality of justice. We take each of these ethical obligations seriously. Ethics come first in everything we do.
Client Focused. We are radically responsive to our clients’ needs and are available 24/7. We place our clients’ interests above our own.
Excellence Driven. We have a passion for excellence in all things. We provide clients with deep knowledge and experience in our practice areas. We are consummate professionals, yet tenacious advocates. Our written and oral advocacy is unsurpassed. We communicate thoroughly and effectively. We are not just litigators; we are trial lawyers. When circumstances warrant, we can try any case to verdict regardless of the stakes. We are courageous and unwavering.
Value Added. We provide our clients unmatched value with big firm capabilities and technology and small firm attention and efficiency. We take time to learn our clients’ business, and we render proactive, practical, and often innovative billing and legal solutions. We do not react to trends; we set them. We take stewardship of our clients’ sensitive information and ensure that it remains secure and confidential. We anticipate where commerce, law, and technology are headed, and we help clients plan ahead rather than react to change.
Leadership Oriented. We assume leadership roles both inside and outside the courtroom. We serve as lead counsel for key parties in litigation. In the community, we lead local, state, national, and international bar associations and charitable organizations. We believe in servant leadership in which the primary role of the leader is to serve all stakeholders of the organization.
Diversity Committed. A diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects the community in which we and our clients live and work enhances our ability to provide quality legal services. Diversity in backgrounds, experiences, and ideas provides the best platform for responding to our clients’ legal needs. To that end, we promote diversity, equity, and inclusion for all employees, regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, disability, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status. We seek the best talent available and value the perspective that diversity brings.
Employee Centered. We value our professionals and staff as our greatest assets. Like any organization, a law firm is only as good as the people whom it employs. We have dedicated and talented professionals and staff, and we provide them the best possible environment, tools, technology, and training to perform their jobs. Feedback is ongoing. Decision-making is transparent and merit-based. We hold each other accountable to high standards. We learn from setbacks and continually improve our capabilities and client service. Most importantly, we genuinely care for one another. We are a family.
Teamwork Based. Nothing of significance was ever accomplished by an individual acting alone. Teamwork is at the heart of all great achievement, which is why we approach all client matters collaboratively, with the client as the central member of the team. Teams foster a sense of community. They also provide greater resources, richer ideas, and higher energy than any one person. Teams provide multiple perspectives on solving a problem or achieving a goal; individual insight is seldom as broad or as deep as that of a group.
Loyalty Built. We value loyalty and longevity. Many lawyers and staff members have been with the firm for decades. Many clients have been with the firm equally as long. In an age where transition is the norm, we believe that loyalty, continuity, and longevity provide the firm a competitive advantage. We develop a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses over many years, in good times and in challenging times, and we leverage that knowledge to provide informed solutions for their legal needs.
Community Minded. We give back to the community by participating with, contributing to, and in many cases leading charitable organizations and causes dedicated to improving society at all levels.
