Code Of Conduct
Last Updated: Wednesday, May 8, 2013
It is an imperative at The Law Office of Stephen M. Dodd to create an atmosphere that fosters open communication, hard work, discipline, ethics, integrity, and honesty.

We have created this page to provide an overview of the culture at our office, with the hope it will entice promising, experienced, and qualified applicants to seek employment with us.

With more than two decades' worth of experience in Norwell, Massachusetts, we are well-equipped to provide the resources and tools our clients require to achieve excellence.

At the same time, we are small enough to maintain an environment that encourages intimate and personal interaction between clients and our legal professionals at all levels of our organization.

Our guiding principles

The core tenets of our culture are ethics and integrity. Without these attributes, we would not be able to boast of our reputation as one of the most highly respected and well-regarded law offices in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The work we do on a day-to-day basis shall always be governed by strict adherence to the principles of:
  • Honesty, at all times, both with ourselves and with our clients;
  • Commitment, to the work we do and to the needs of our clients;
  • Accessibility, at all times to both our colleagues and to our clients;
  • Appreciation, to our clients for the trust they have placed in us;

We want to nurture professional and personal growth for each and every member of our staff and we go out of our way to encourage it.

Over time, we have realized that mentoring and training of our new associates is vital in building a strong, solid foundation for long-term, rewarding careers. Concurrently, we always will provide the flexibility for all employees to fulfill their personal goals.

Always ahead of the curve

Our office relies on state-of-the-art technology (software, hardware, infrastructure) to assist us at maximum efficiency, allowing us to focus on high-level analysis.

Frequent interaction with both colleagues and clients alike helps develop improve communication and leadership skills.

We are proud of our atmosphere of complete professionalism without sacrificing any personal touches.

We maintain only the highest standards for performance, ethical behavior, and integrity, without instilling a fear that we are rigid or inflexible. We want a spirit of abundant collegiality.

We acknowledge that each and every employee has a life outside the firm. The flexibility we encourage allows our personnel to fulfill their personal goals as well as meet outside, personal, family, and community obligations.

We encourage employees to get involved in civic, community and professional activities. We want to make a difference in the communities in which we live and work.
