A Law Firm Built On Principle
We created Bonner Law Firm with specific ideals and principles in mind. After 20 years of practice, we chose to build a new firm from the ground up — one that reflects our values, our personality and our approach to work and the practice of law. Simply put, the goal of Bonner Law Firm is to solve our clients’ problems, to help them achieve their goals and to be excellent every step of the way.
How Do We Uphold These Values?
- We Start By Listening
We know our clients or we get to know them. We listen carefully to their concerns. We work hard to understand what they want and what they need. We do not try to impose our will on their issues. Instead, we impose their will on the issues at hand to solve their problems.
- By Caring
People don't want to hire a lawyer who doesn't care about them or their case — a lawyer who seems like he's just going through the motions. You won't find that at Bonner Law Firm. Our relationships with our clients run deep precisely because we care — and care deeply.
- By Working Harder
We will be there first. And we will be there last. Whatever it takes. Because we know hard work and preparation lead to success. Simple as that.
- By Working Smarter
Efficiency is a hallmark at Bonner Law Firm. If there's a way to do it quicker, simpler and less expensively — without risking quality — we will find it and do it.
- By Applying Cutting-Edge Technology
Technology today allows small firms to do extraordinary things. The meeting or hearing may be in Denver or New York, but often we can attend via videoconference from right here in Cody. That saves us time and our clients money. We aren't “techno-geeks;” we simply know that the best technology allows us to perform better and provide a better service.
- By Being Trustworthy
We do what we say we are going to do. Or, said another way, we won't paint you a rosy picture if it isn't true. Trust isn't handed over — it is earned. We understand the importance of trust.
- By Handling Complex Matters
We do not shy away from the most difficult of challenges. Instead, we embrace them. We have the team of professionals with the skill, intelligence, insight and experience to solve truly complex problems.
When I was young, I asked my Dad, “Why do you go to work in the dark, before the sun comes up?” He told me he had to go to shovel the snow from the office sidewalks before people showed up. “But why you?” I asked. “You own the business.” He replied, “To earn the respect of the people around you, no one should believe he or she has to work harder than you do.”
It was a simple message delivered many years ago. But the lessons from it were many, they were valuable and they have stayed with me and guided me to this day. The importance of hard work. Leading by example. Caring for others. And what it takes to truly earn respect.
