“Ater Wynne is a firm where lawyers choose to work. We have a huge talent pool of well-educated, very experienced people. They work very hard. But we also honor the fact that they have a life outside the office. That makes them WELL-ROUNDED LAWYERS. I don’t think enough firms honor their people in that way.”
– Jonathan Ater, Partner Emeritus
At Ater Wynne, we do our best to remember that it is the work that must be taken seriously, not ourselves. However, we take pride in our commitment to providing excellent professional services and strong community support. We appreciate others’ recognition of that service.
