Core Values and Compass Points

Our core values answer the question of who we are. They define us. They provide all of us with a sense of our firm’s identity and they communicate that identity to you. These core values serve as “compass points”. They provide context and direction in our professional lives. They serve as reference points for us to assure we are true to our direction. These core values were a collaborative effort and represent the consensus of all attorneys and staff at Preg O’Donnell & Gillett. Our core values are
