Client Serving Focus
Our attorneys understand that we serve to solve our client’s problems. It doesn’t matter the size of the client or the complexity of the matter: we strive to be our client’s trusted advisor and a member of their team. Our clients don’t hesitate to reach out to us because they know we offer practical real-world solutions at a competitive cost. Whenever possible, we internally work as a team to ensure the client has the best legal minds offering solutions.
All of our attorneys have years of experience working on complex matters and are widely respected as leaders in their field. Many of our attorneys worked in large national firms with diverse clients or attend well-regarded law schools where they received exceptional training. And all of our attorneys were smart enough to realize there is a better way of providing legal services: one that cuts out the bloated overhead costs that are frequently passed on to clients via higher billable rates. Instead, our attorneys provide exceptional solutions at less cost, with better technology and efficiency. You truly pay for our brainpower, not our fancy conference rooms. Because you are working with partner-level attorneys with years of direct experience, you benefit from working directly with an experienced attorney.
Our attorneys must meet our stringent standards and have:
- At least seven years of experience in the practice of law (though most of our
partners are in the 15 + year range)
- Majority of training and practice experience with a large law firm
- Strong educational credentials from respected institutions
- Adherence to the highest standards of legal ethics and professionalism
- Exceptional skills and knowledge in their primary practice areas
- Maintaining the highest levels of excellence through continuing legal education
We are thrilled with the success and response from our clients and attorneys regarding our virtual model. We appreciate those who have embraced our innovative and modern approach to providing legal services. Vanst is committed to building a solid culture within our firm and expanding the firm with strategic and thoughtful growth. Our growth is based on the demand of our clients and attorneys. We believe our model will thrive in markets that are currently dominated by traditional law firm models. The future of our planet, the health of our profession, and the happiness of our clients and attorneys depends on it. Vanst is actively recruiting forward-thinking lateral partners with excellent legal acumen.
Vanst Law believes the best way to practice law is with happy attorneys. Attorneys that are happy in their career are more solution oriented, productive and focused. And who doesn’t love being around a happy, positive person? Part of the reason we are so happy is that Vanst allows attorneys to practice where they want, when they want. We operate virtually: no long commutes to an office, no face time, no office politics. We lower our carbon footprint and increase our impact.
Our attorneys love what they do and are successful doing it. All of our attorneys are partners with years of experience and clients they are dedicated to serving. Vanst’s virtual platform provides the means to service our clients more efficiently, at less cost, and with more flexibility. Our modern, virtual approach drastically cuts down the overhead costs normally spent on office space, paper files, cavernous lobbies and administration: cost savings that can be passed on to the client through lower billable rates.
Ms. Morgan-Reed gave up her solo practice to launch Vanst because she is a feminist and believes that all people, regardless of race, gender, color or creed should be paid what they are worth and treated fairly. After her own law firm experiences of sexism, discrimination, and pay inequity, she excelled as a solo and obtained the financial freedom and flexibility she desired. But she continued to be frustrated with the stories of her colleagues and friends that mirrored her own negative experience in traditional law firms. These were strong, smart people who loved what they did, but were continually beaten down by the law firm structure in which they were practicing. A structure that failed attorneys and clients alike. Vanst was born of the desire to provide a firm where attorneys are treated fairly, paid what they deserve, and exist in a culture that empowers them to do what they do best: practice exceptional law.
