Agentis recognizes that its culture and success stems from the people on our team. Our attorneys and staff include talented individuals from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, races, and sexual orientations. A scroll through our website is a testament to the firm’s commitment to creating and promoting a culture of diversity and inclusion. That culture of diversity is not an end in itself, but instead is the result of our effort to recruit the best and brightest attorneys and staff. Agentis hires based on merit alone. Diversity for us is not about numbers and statistics. It is a celebration and reflection of the talented community that is right outside our door.
For Agentis, diversity starts at the top. Agentis is a certified minority-owned law firm. Further, more than half of our attorneys and paraprofessional staff are persons from traditionally underrepresented groups. We know that diversity results in a broader perspective that enhances our collaborative environment and we recognize that each professional’s individual background and experience provides a frame of reference that can translate into effective communication and representation of our clients in the South Florida community.
Additionally, the firm encourages and allocates resources to support its attorneys’ involvement in community, civic, and professional organizations which promote diversity or provide services to underrepresented groups, including some of the following: The Hispanic National Bar Association, The Cuban-American Bar Association, The International Women’s Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation, Raices de Esperanza (Roots of Hope), The Children’s Home Society, New World School of the Arts, Thomas Armour Youth Ballet, Catholic Lawyers Association, and The Pro Bono Committee of the Bankruptcy Bar Association.
