Lee Collins Family

Destiny and Vision Guided Lee Collins to BoyarMiller

“We have a firm of like-minded people who are committed to our mission and values. It is second nature to who we are. This is a great place to work, but it isn’t great for everyone. If you connect with our mission and live our values, it is the right place with a lot of opportunity.”

Community and Competition Drive Chris Hanslik

“I realized that litigation was my path and enjoy the similarities that it has to winning sports competitions in that both require a true team effort to accomplish the desired goal. Helping clients achieve successful outcomes certainly fuels the fire in me.”

A Perfect Round with Bill Boyar

“I’ve always said that growth and profit are not strategies, but if you build the right business model on a solid foundation of core principles, responsible growth and making money result. I guess we have been a grand experiment to determine whether a law firm built on culture first could succeed. We started our journey well before it was fashionable to post words about mission and values on a website. For us, our unique culture is who we are and is very alive and real. I guess you could say it has worked just fine.”

Matt Veech Contemplates Family, Clients and Fly Fishing

“I realized I wanted to focus on working more directly with the key decision-makers in organizations and clients closer to home. For me, this was a way to make a difference. I had known Chris Hanslik, our firm chairman, in high school and had an opportunity to meet everyone at BoyarMiller. Our cultures and philosophies of client service aligned and I was convinced this was my new home.”

Philip Dunlap Family

The Right Time, the Right Culture for Philip Dunlap

“From the beginning, BoyarMiller seemed like a place that aligned with the way I practice law. I researched the firm, contacted Steve Kesten of our business group, and we had a good conversation. A few days later I met with the shareholders and others here, and then joined the firm two weeks later. The culture at BoyarMiller is a perfect fit with my own principles and I haven’t looked back since then.”

Pearce Family Cropped

Family, Values and Client Success Matter Most to Andrew Pearce

“I pride myself on giving clients the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves in what can otherwise be a confusing and frustrating litigation process. How does someone know if he or she has a good lawyer and their interests are being well represented and protected? It is not only decided by outcome. So, I advise people to look for a lawyer who shares their values, provides regular updates, and always puts their interests first. Those are among the values we share at BoyarMiller and we really do live them every day.”

Our firm has strong relationships both inside and outside the firm, and that makes it a very special place.”
