At Vandenack Weaver we are mindful of the role we play in the lives and livelihoods of the individuals, families and businesses we serve. Our strength lies in the knowledge and experience our people possess – along with their ability to apply these strengths to vigorous, innovative and strategic approaches to the issues our clients face.
We understand that it takes more than expertise to be effective in our work – and to enable others to do the same. That’s why we also believe in developing a culture that encourages our people to continue to develop professionally, to remain current with legal changes and interpretations, and to cultivate relationships that enable us to become a trusted advisor, confidante and friend to our clients.
