Our Name Sets a High Standard

Atticus takes its name from Atticus Finch, the courageous lawyer in Harper Lee’s classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird.

In addition to being a lawyer involved in the biggest and most controversial case of his life, Atticus Finch was also a devoted parent, a caring friend, a reliable neighbor, and a pillar of his community. In the midst of great stress and change, Atticus found a way to maintain balance in both his personal and professional life. The name reflects our commitment to helping you move closer to that idea, becoming the kind of attorney you envisioned when you entered the profession.
