    Steven was exceptional. He made time to thoroughly understand the facts and circumstances of the lawsuit. He replied to the appeal in great detail with force, clarity and accuracy. Steven took a personal interest in the case. It was reassuring to have a representative who diligently fought for us and presented our facts conviction and integrity. We won a unanimous victory. I highly recommend Steven Bristol.

    Brad was wonderful to work with from start to finish. I was very confused and uncertain as to how everything should be handled. He explained things clearly and set my mind at ease. He is very extremely knowledgeable, personable as well as responsive. Again, he was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him.

    I was unsure of all the things I needed to do when my son died suddenly
    without a will. John David explained everything explicitly and made me feel very comfortable through the process. He had such empathy for me and our family during this difficult tragedy. John has handled many things in the past such as a closing, making of my will, and just general law questions answered for me. I would recommend Mr. Dean to anybody seeking help in any area. Very nice young man with gracious manners.

Diversity

Since the firm’s inception, HBS has embraced the value of diversity, and we continue to cultivate an environment of inclusion and success for all individuals.  We are committed to a cohesive and productive work environment where our varied cultures, backgrounds, ethnicities, and perspectives are communicated, understood, and embraced to enrich our employees and best serve our clients.

Our Commitment
Our efforts to enhance our diverse environment are not restricted to minority employees.  Instead, we believe that everyone, regardless of his or her race, age, or gender, must be included in our diversity mission in order to ensure its success.   The firm’s Diversity Committee is comprised of partners and senior staff members who ensure our diversity mission is not just a sentiment but is also a part of the fabric of HBS.     

HBS actively participates in a variety of events and sponsorships geared towards highlighting the importance of diversity, and the firm continuously seeks opportunities to enhance our diversity program.  This includes involvement with organizations such as the Corporate Counsel for Women of Color and the Minority Corporate Counsel of America as well as our internal mentor/protégé program, in which our senior, female and minority attorneys reach out and mentor other women and minority attorneys and clients.
