Hiring Attorney: Mr. Seth Good
Hiring Attorney: Vanessa Bachtell
Goldberg Kohn is committed to building a work environment that reflects the diversity of our community. We believe that one of the main drivers of the health and success of our firm is creating a vibrant culture in which professionals of all backgrounds can find long-term work/life balance and experience a true sense of belonging. We also support the movement for racial and social justice through our volunteer time and our money.
In order to build an environment that is inclusive and supportive, Goldberg Kohn espouses an approach to diversity that supplements the firm's core values with a concerted recruitment, retention and promotion strategy for diverse professionals that encourages our entire team to be involved in the change we want to see. In practical terms this means facilitating the development of multiple partner and staff mentorship and champion relationships for diverse associates centered around internal and external networking opportunities and providing regular career and business development support and resources; supporting local community organizations both financially and with our volunteer time; and building a robust Pro Bono program that undertakes projects like criminal record sealing and expungement clinics for historically underserved client populations.
Our approach to diversity also builds upon Goldberg Kohn's founding principles and the unique culture we have fostered. Specifically, throughout its history, our firm has implemented a deliberate, purposeful growth plan — one attorney at a time. The firm does not acquire practice groups and has never merged with another firm or group of attorneys. We operate based upon consensus building, not vote-counting. Goldberg Kohn has firm clients, not individual attorneys with separate books of business. This approach creates an environment where every principal enjoys an equal voice and attorneys of every background have the opportunity and encouragement to flourish professionally and economically. We believe these values and policies enable all of our professionals, from a wide range of communities, to establish long-term careers at Goldberg Kohn.
