In our nation people only receive the amount of justice that they can afford. AQUME Law, PLLC acknowledges that some people are more disadvantaged, particularly communities of color, in their ability to access legal services and therefore we believe that all law firms have a responsibility to address this systemic inequity; which is why we are committed to the provision of pro-bono and/or discounted services to qualifying customers.
An approach that ensures everyone access to the same opportunities. Equity recognizes that advantages and barriers exist, and that, as a result, we all don’t all start from the same place when striving to achieve positive life outcomes. Equity is a process that begins by acknowledging that unequal starting place and continues to correct and address the imbalance. This is measured by outcomes disaggregated by demographics, and change in policy. AQUME Law, PLLC is committed to using our influence to promote equity within the legal field.
AQUME Law, PLLC rejects the notion of inferiority that is far too often placed on small businesses, especially small businesses of color. Excellence is not perfection. “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.” – Vince Lombardy Jr. Excellence is a journey through an ever-changing landscape of possibilities and opportunities. Excellence is based on reality, producing the best result under given circumstances. The staff at AQUME Law, PLLC know that excellence in services to our customers is essential.
A process that fosters power (that is, the capacity to implement) in people, for use in their own lives, their communities, and in their society, by acting on their own authority in relation to issues important to them. The staff at AQUME Law, PLLC work to empower our clients with legal knowledge, services and support. Far too often the legal system has been a tool of oppression instead of an instrument of empowerment.
