Core Values

At Goetz Fitzpatrick, our core values are TIER: Teamwork, Integrity, Excellence, and Respect. Our TIER values guide our work and interactions with clients, colleagues, and the community. Our collaboration and striving for excellence and ethics in everything we do results in the best legal advice to our clients and each other.



Working collaboratively with our clients and each other is essential to positive and creative solutions for our clients.  We provide practical and strategic advice to our clients tailored to meet each client’s individual needs, whether a business or individual.  We approach each case as unique, leveraging our colleagues’ diversified experience, background, and skill set to achieve the best possible outcome.  We use our best efforts to foster a culture of teamwork that empowers both our team members and clients to achieve excellent results.


Our commitment to integrity is reflected in every aspect of our work, from our connections with our clients to the approach to our clients’ confidential and sensitive information and problems. Honesty, transparency, and ethical behavior are essential elements of our strong relationships with our clients and colleagues. We are dedicated to upholding the trust and confidence that our clients place in us.


We commit to excellence in our work.  This means thinking “like a lawyer” and personalizing the approach to the specific issues presented to us by our clients, which they come to us to resolve.


The practice of law is stressful, particularly in advocacy situations like litigation.  We believe in the value of respect and understand its role as a fundamental aspect of building strong relationships with our clients, the court, colleagues, and our community.  We strive to achieve that balance between advocacy and adversarialness and create an open environment that enhances our other core values of teamwork, integrity, excellence, and respect.
