Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

Old Colony Law embraces, values and respects a variety of social and cultural characteristics, including race, class, ethnicity, origin, language, health condition, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, family composition, mental ability, physical ability, religion, income, political persuasion and age. In order for Old Colony Law to compassionately and effectively serve our clients and be a leader in the legal and financial communities, we commit to celebrating diversity, ensuring inclusion and working towards equity in all we do.

We believe diversity, inclusion and equity are particularly essential given the nature of our industry and the services we provide. After all, everybody needs an estate plan and everybody should be able to protect their assets from frivolous lawsuits, excessive taxation, mistakes and disasters as they pursue their professional endeavors.

At the same time, every situation is truly unique. None of the above-referenced characteristics should be an obstacle to accessing quality estate planning services or any legal service. In fact, we believe that understanding our clients and their situation is what enables us to provide high quality legal services in the first place.

We are proud that approximately 10% of our clients to date have international legal considerations and that we have served clients from every major religion. We are also proud to have served blended families, LGBTQ couples, and parents of children with disabilities.

While we are proud of our work to date, we acknowledge that in order to be a truly diverse and inclusive law office we must continue to exercise our commitment to these goals in the way we do business and interact with one another and our external partners.

In an ongoing effort, we will build and integrate our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion into our service to clients, collaboration with other professionals on behalf of our mutual clients, business practices, communications and overall culture of Old Colony Law.
