Mentorship

JDSA actively mentors our team members. With our active Mentor program, we help orient the Associate to the firm and the legal profession. Providing support, as coach and advocate, the Mentor helps the Associate develop, use good judgment and insight. The Mentor may or may not have the responsibility to delegate work, and can assist with maintaining quality control, suggest and approve educational opportunities, provide training on efficiency, client relations and file management; and evaluate the Associate’s work product and general lawyering abilities.

Training

JDSA is focused on advancement for our attorneys and team members. We offer a comprehensive program designed to enhance the skills of our current and future professionals. From legal internships permitted under Rule 9-A limited license to practice in Washington State, to internal training and development, our attorneys and professional staff are encouraged, guided and highly supported in furthering their knowledge and sharpening their skills. The more our JDSA team members improve, we can better serve our clients.

 

Community

JDSA is involved in the community. We participate in the legal community in which we work, and the surrounding community in which we live.

JDSA attorneys also contribute time as coaches of youth sports with local soccer, baseball, and hockey teams.

Serving the community is important to our attorneys at JDSA.

Enhanced Technology

JDSA is forward-thinking. As such, we have one description for our firm:


FORWARD

Everything we do is set to advance us future-forward from other law firms.

 

Technology has many great uses and benefits. JDSA consistently seeks to leverage technology in new and exciting ways. We embrace using the cloud and mobile time tracking, digital project management and virtualization. If the technology can make both our internal and external clients' experience safer, faster and smoother, we embrace it.

In concert with this ideology, we are forward-looking into the legal landscape. We are discovering new and improved ways to help our attorneys utilize technology to better both the firm, and their individual practices.

JDSA prides itself on the ability to anticipate the needs of our users before they even know they are "missing" something. New ideas are never dismissed from any level of our firm. When our attorneys, professional staff, or outside support members have an idea, we listen. In this evolving marketplace, it is paramount to embrace strong ideas.


These standards will ensure we maintain our momentum of technological evolution and revolution into the future. At JDSA, we're not only planning for the next year, but for the next decade.
