Atheria is a community of lawyers and other legal professionals who believe that the practice of law is rooted in equity and collaboration.
As advocates, problem-solvers, counselors, and mediators, we have a moral obligation to use our platform to create a more just, fair world. Our commitment to this belief shows up in three distinct ways.
We approach client work as a partnership built on honest communication and trust. Atheria works diligently to meet our clients’ needs, rather than the other way around. We pride ourselves on our cutting-edge technological infrastructure and processes that move our clients’ best interests forward while helping them succeed from beginning to end.
We empower every Atheria team member, regardless of title or tenure, to help make Atheria the firm that they want it to be—a place where they feel included, valued, and heard. In an industry where closed doors are the norm, our doors are always open.
We also believe it is important to be an active part of our larger community. We engage with community organizations that share and advance our core values surrounding racial and social equity. Through intentional pro bono work, giving, and volunteering, Atheria works to drive lasting change in the community around us and the world at large.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are part of Atheria’s ethos and the very foundation upon which our firm was created. They are not an afterthought or a response to recent social events.
We firmly believe the best solutions never happen in an echo chamber. Instead, they emerge from the diversity of thought, perspective, and culture.
The world is more connected now than ever before. Our clients’ needs have evolved far beyond the answers which only one narrow viewpoint or demographic can supply.
Our unique backgrounds, cultures, and identities make Atheria a stronger team that fuels the superior results we deliver to our clients.
We are majority women-owned.
Our lawyers consistently enroll in legal education courses on the elimination of bias far beyond the minimum requirements of the applicable State Bars.
We offer access to training related to diversity and inclusion, imposter syndrome, bystander intervention, and other issues, to all our team members.
You won’t find any cringeworthy, outdated law firm practices at Atheria. We freely share information with clients, listen to their concerns, and deliver practical advice focused on obtaining resolutions. When you work with us, you can expect:
Honest dialogue—We believe that respect and trust are rooted in honesty. We pride ourselves on giving our clients direct, clear answers and advice—even if it is difficult to hear.
Our "doors" are always open—Our team is responsive and straightforward. We do not sit on information, push issues to the back burner, or communicate after the fact.
Modern billing practices—We appreciate that our clients don’t want a one-size-fits-all approach to billing. In addition to a traditional hourly-rate structure, we work with our clients to identify opportunities better suited for more flexible billing arrangements.

The partners consistently demonstrate that they care about transparency. Firm-wide meetings are commonplace, wherein the partners openly discuss management decisions and request feedback regarding the future of the firm. I never feel like important decisions are being made behind closed doors.
This organization is full of extremely smart, compassionate people that work very hard for one another. I truly believe in the leadership to create a successful business while being attentive to their employees. I am excited about the mentorship program we are launching and to have the opportunity to move up within an effective and thoughtful company. I am grateful to Atheria and proud to say that I work somewhere so diverse and so dedicated to their clients.
