In 1933, Irwin Buchalter founded the firm based on principles of inclusivity. As the firm grew, its leadership continued to believe that professional and dedicated lawyers who did not fit the traditional mold of the era could nonetheless build a highly successful practice, and that clients from all walks of life were entitled to skilled legal representation. From these early roots, Buchalter has evolved into a firm where skin color, gender, religion, familial status, sexual orientation and ethnicity play no part in the lawyers it hires or the clients it serves.
Buchalter also believes that it has an ethical imperative to encourage and ensure that every individual in the firm is granted the opportunity to excel. The firm provides a platform for all to pursue success and to take pride in providing the highest quality of legal services for its clients. Buchalter insists upon parity of opportunity and compensation and continues to prioritize the personal and professional well-being of all employees. Education programs, mentoring opportunities, diversity & women’s initiatives, and appreciation activities are just some of the ways that Buchalter attracts, develops, and retains the highest caliber attorneys and staff members.
