Message from the Senior Chairman


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

People regularly ask me what makes Tressler different from other law firms. I believe that it is our refusal to concede. In a time of commoditization, we refuse to be a commodity. In a time of contraction, we continue to grow. In a time of self-absorption, we remain committed to our profession and to the communities in which we live. In a time of declining service, we have reaffirmed our culture of responsiveness to the needs of our clients and to the people at Tressler who provide that service. In a time of corner cutting, we continue to invest in our people, our technology, training and facilities. In a time of push-button responses, we insist upon personal relationships. In a time of indifference, we still listen. In a time of uncertainty, we stand confident and prepared.

You see, our philosophy is simple - - do the right thing. We understand that our clients have real interests that often trump the pure legal analyses of their problems. We understand that our attorneys and staff should have rich, full lives outside of the office. We understand that our communities are entitled to expect more from us than our mere presence. We understand that our profession demands commitment, integrity and adherence to the highest professional and moral standards. At Tressler, we refuse to concede to any way other than the Tressler way - - the right way.

Give us a call or stop by for a cup of coffee. I am confident that you too will see the difference.


Sincerely,

Daniel R. Formeller
Senior Chairman
