Spring Has Sprung at Lether Law Group
Every year for the past four years, the first sign of spring at Lether Law Group has been when the local goose lays her eggs in her nest at the patio of the office. After monitoring and helping Mama Goose feel comfortable for weeks, we are pleased to announce that her eggs finally hatched today, April 9th.
This year has brought hardship and challenges for many, but positive developments are happening around us in terms of vaccinations and restrictions being lifted. We like to see the six healthy baby geese as a sign of better times to come. New spring, new goose babies and new beginnings. We look forward to leaping into spring with you all. Keep staying safe and healthy!
Our dedicated, talented team is what makes us successful. As we all immerse ourselves with March Madness these days, we would like to take the opportunity to talk about what makes the Lether Law Group team the winning team that it is.
Situated on the shores of Lake Union, and with a team of maritime enthusiasts, it is only fitting that Lether Law Group follows the Canoe Theory for its team success.
– The firm is like a long canoe
– The canoe has a destination
– Everyone has a seat and a paddle
– Everyone is expected to paddle
– Those who won’t paddle have to get out of the canoe
– Those who prevent others from paddling have to re-adjust or get out of the canoe
– The canoe understands crisis
– The canoe theory says “You have the right to be happy”
– The canoe can go fast and be stressful. The canoe can also be slow and peaceful
– The canoe always tries to win
The hardworking, competent team at Lether Law Group shows up every day for our clients – whether that be remote, or socially distanced and with appropriate safety measures in the office. Since March last year, we have adjusted according to the government’s recommendations and restrictions. We take the health and safety of our employees seriously, and it’s important for us to make sure our employees are safe and healthy – both physically and mentally. That’s’ why we, in addition to COVID safety precautions, have been practicing daily social distanced stretching and mindfulness classes, daily walking groups, juice and smoothie stations in the office kitchen, and more.

Due to all the difficulties faced around the world and in our local community in 2020, we believe an emphasis on compassion in 2021 is imperative. Bringing together this country and the world to fight both COVID and injustice should be a priority for everyone. Lether Law Group is starting off 2021 with an emphasis on compassion. This includes a renewed emphasis on the well-being of our employees, clients, and those in our community. For this reason, our core value for the month of February in our anniversary year is:
As part of our Compassion campaign this month, we want to focus this newsletter on an aspect of our community heavily affected by COVID-19. The pandemic has hit small and local businesses everywhere with a force no one could foresee or plan for. We believe that small businesses are the backbone of our communities. These businesses provide people with good-paying jobs and contribute to the cultural and civic life of our city. Lether Law Group has been invested in the local community for 10 years. And as a family-owned business, we understand and appreciate the hard work that goes into operating a small business.
We encourage you to buy local and support small businesses wherever you may be located. We have compiled a list of resources for locating and supporting businesses in the Seattle area that have been affected by COVID-19. See below links. By caring and showing compassion we can overcome and thrive together.
Once again, Lether Law Group appreciates everything our clients have been able to do to assist us in meeting this goal. We are extremely proud to provide excellent legal services with an emphasis on caring and compassion. We look forward to meeting this goal in 2021 with each of you.
As Lether Law Group moves on to a New Year, we are proud to announce that 2021 represents our 10th year in business as a firm. In 2011, Tom Lether started a new practice which focused on a different and better way of representing clients. Despite the challenges of a new practice, the past 10 years have been enormously successful. We want to again thank all of our employees and clients that have been a part of our unparalleled success.
In 2011, the firm adopted the following 5 benchmarks:
Experience Matters, Efficiency Matters, Client Service Matters, Results Matter, Honesty Matters.
To celebrate our 10th year, we are adding 5 new standards. This totals to 10 core values for 10 years of service. Each one of these goals is something that we at Lether Law Group strive for every day.
Experience, Efficiency, Client Service, Results, Honesty, Compassion, Winning, Reputation, Wisdom, Teamwork.
We look forward to continuing to represent our clients in 2021. Over the next 12 months, we will feature our values one by one. Each core value represent how we practice law. We look forward to showing you how they are reflected in our work, relationships with clients and daily life.
Thank you again for your dedication and the opportunities that you have provided. We have so much to be grateful for. We are extremely proud to be associated with such incredible clients. Please stay safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing what we will accomplish together in 2021.
