How We Work
We operate in teams, with Partners overseeing groups of associates, maximizing our collective resources and assuring accountability. A single Partner supervises and coordinates all matters relating to any given action. This chain of responsibility insures a prompt response to any of our clients’ needs or concerns. Our offices, while modern and well-appointed, reflect our emphasis on function over flash. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment, including fully computerized network systems with e-mail capabilities, electronic billing, current case management programs and library and research capabilities. Our computer-linked library provides access to a vast array of modern legal resources.
We are proud of our in-house continuing education training programs, designed to keep our attorneys up-to-date on changes in the law and how those changes affect their areas of practice. In order to aggressively pursue our clients’ interests, we are constantly honing our collective skills to ensure rigorous analysis and innovative methodology.
At Gray•Duffy, we are all dedicated to working relationships with our clients exemplified by integrity, hard work, responsiveness to their needs and most importantly, positive results. We invite you, through this Website and by speaking directly with us, to see for yourself.
