At Fabyanske, Westra, Hart & Thomson, we believe that valuing diversity and practicing inclusion add to the success of our lawyers, staff, and clients. We define diversity broadly to include the range of human differences, including but not limited to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, veteran/military status, status with regard to public assistance, disability, sexual orientation and identification, age, and familial status. We strive to achieve an environment of dignity and respect where everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed. When people of diverse backgrounds work together, sharing their knowledge, perspectives, and experiences, our clients and our community benefit.

We recognize that fostering a culture of diversity, inclusion, and mutual understanding within our firm involves continuous effort, focus, and action. Fabyanske, Westra, Hart & Thomson has a Diversity Committee, made up of shareholders, associates, and our administrator, charged with working with our Executive Committee to try to achieve our goal of recruiting, retaining, and developing a diverse team of exceptional professionals and fostering an environment of inclusion and mutual respect.
