We think it is of the utmost importance for you to know who we are, both internally and externally. Our entire staff knows that the client is our main concern, whether it is in answering the phones personally, returning phone calls promptly, communicating with the client with candor or thinking creatively (we call it thinking outside the box) about a plan of action. Our fields of emphasis are limited enough for us to truly become the best there is. In fact, we’ve been voted one of the top three overall law firms in Arkansas by the state’s business journal, Arkansas Business, and are the largest labor and employment firm in Arkansas, as ranked by Chambers USA. It should also be noted that we are the only Firm on the list of Arkansas’ largest law firms to have female majority ownership – a rare feat in the legal industry as whole, at least as it pertains to larger (non-solo practitioners), established firms.
We practice a team approach to meet client needs. We hope all of our clients truly feel like they are getting our undivided attention when we work for them. We truly believe that the Firm should practice good stewardship and give back to the community by promoting civic and charitable donations of time, talent and money. We try hard to practice what we preach and encourage these efforts from each and every staff member. CGWG believes that the recruitment, employment, and retention of qualified individuals with diverse backgrounds are important. It is CGWG’s belief that its clients receive the highest quality legal services when its legal teams reflect the diversity of our communities.
We also think it is very important for our entire staff to maintain a balance in their personal lives among work, play and rest. Happy staff members work better together and work better for our clients.
