Koley Jessen P.C., L.L.O.
Koley Jessen P.C., L.L.O. opened its doors with seven lawyers on February 1, 1988. In addition to the typical law firm goals of providing quality and timely legal services at a fair price, the founders of the firm were bound and determined to create a working environment that would engender trust, team work, and integrity. They recognized that for a Firm to succeed, there must be mutual respect and trust among the members of the Firm with recognition of and appreciation for each individual’s unique contribution. They also recognized that maintaining a Client focus in every aspect of the Firm’s operations was key and that Clients would be better served if more than one lawyer in the Firm could handle their matters, ensuring seamless service at all times. This would require the lawyers and the staff to work closely together and for each to have the same quality standards for Client service.
When discussing management challenges unique to law firms, a law firm consultant commented that getting lawyers to work together is like trying to herd a bunch of cats - it is darn near impossible. Lawyers tend to be independent individuals, a characteristic that we welcome and encourage. We believe we have successfully combined the independence and individuality of our team members with the team approach we take to the practice of law to provide our Clients the best service possible. At Koley Jessen P.C., L.L.O., our core values of Integrity, Client Focus and Respect for Others are the guiding principles for our practice of law.
We chose our current location because it is centrally located, close to the Interstate and convenient for most of our Clients. As the Firm has grown in numbers, we have incrementally expanded our space and now occupy the entire 8th floor and approximately two-thirds of the 7th Floor of One Pacific Place. We have made a substantial investment in our office space and feel it is a very comfortable setting in which to work and meet with our Clients. We feel fortunate to be able to work in such beautiful surroundings.
In order to be competitive in business it is necessary to have technology capable of meeting the demands and needs of our Clients. Our technology is continually evolving and is an important investment of our Firm.
