Values that Drive Us
Our clients depend on our legal expertise to navigate complex business issues and provide aggressive courtroom support. At SettlePou, we deliver even more than that. Our firm is driven by core values that translate into genuine relationships and powerful advocacy.
SettlePou first opened its doors in 1978, founded by John D. Settle, Jr., and Robert L. Pou III. We began with a focus on commercial lending and real estate transactions, and gradually expanded our services in response to our clients’ needs. Today, our firm has grown to include more than 35 lawyers and six practice areas — but our commitment to client service remains the same. From forming partnerships with seasoned attorneys to training tomorrow’s leaders through our clerkship program, our firm is built around good people and great lawyers. As we enter the next 35 years, we’ll continue to provide exceptional service and to put our clients’ needs first.
SettlePou is proud to support the communities where we live and work. We are involved in community organizations and charitable giving through group projects and sponsorships, as well as our attorneys’ individual commitments.
SettlePou’s core values are not aspirational — they reflect the principles on which SettlePou was built. SettlePou’s core values guide our culture, our client relationships, and our practice.
