Murchison & Cumming, LLP
We appreciate the diversity and uniqueness of our attorneys and staff – people whose backgrounds and life experiences are unique in every sense of the word – which diversity we consider to be so engrained in our firm culture as to allow us to naturally bring broad-based, practical and unique perspectives to the legal issues and client service demanded by today's global marketplace.
Several of our attorneys and staff immigrated to the United States – coming from countries on at least four continents – learning not only English in the process but also an appreciation for the American legal system. We grew up and went to school in small towns and big cities; we came to the west from all parts of the United States and many other countries; our backgrounds are from every economic level; we speak many languages and hold a variety of educational degrees and honors; we are single and married; many of us are parents; we range in age from our 20s to our 70s and for some, law is a second career; we have many interests and talents and are accomplished in many ways unrelated to the law. We are women and men, without limitation of opportunity because of gender, race, creed, sexual orientation, disability, heritage or any other thing. Simply stated, individually and collectively, we are unique.
Murchison & Cumming attorneys have served as speakers on various panels addressing diversity in the workplace, including issues such as the challenges and opportunities faced in career development, family friendly work policies in the office, and responding to discrimination in the workplace. Our attorneys have also been leaders in, and are active members of, bar associations and organizations focused on heritage or gender, such as:
· Armenian Bar Association
· Asian American Bar Association
· Hispanic American Bar Association
· Korean American Bar Association
· Korean American Chamber of Commerce
· Mexican American Bar Association
· German American Bar Association
· Asian Pacific American Law Students Association
· Mexican-American Scholarship, University of Southern California
· South Asian Law Students Association
· Women Lawyers Association
We encourage and value a culture of diversity and inclusivity, and believe in the benefits that a multicultural law firm like that of Murchison & Cumming provides for our clients, staff and attorneys.
