Step into our office, and you might be surprised at what you find…


Upon entering our offices, visitors immediately recognize that this law firm is somehow different than most. Perhaps your eye catches the dozens of striking photographs along the walls, the work of award-winning photojournalist Nancy Rhoda.



The firm’s guiding words sum up its strengths: Experience. Commitment. Common Sense.

“We are a hands-on practice of dedicated attorneys who have experience in a wide range of areas,” says Harlan Dodson III. “We want to be involved with our clients, their businesses and their families through direct one-on-one relationships.”


The firm offers services in civil and appellate litigation, business law and transactions, personal and corporate tax planning, wills, trusts and estates, banking, real estate, employment, bankruptcy and business reorganization, family law, elder law, administrative and regulatory law, intellectual property law, civil rights, and criminal defense. Our attorneys have a great deal of experience in both state and federal courts. As a result, clients find they can bring nearly any legal matter to one firm, knowing they will find sound legal advice.

Professionally, the firm’s attorneys are highly respected in the legal, government, and business communities.

They teach at area law schools, regularly publish in legal journals, conduct seminars, and train other attorneys. Out of the office, you’ll find them deeply involved with their community, whether in the arts, sports, education, or public service.

This firm is different, and our clients know it when they come through our door. We’re known for the stability of our staff, who stay with us for the long run. We return our phone calls and e-mails.

We are experienced lawyers who are committed to giving our clients good service and who bring expertise to more than just one area of the law. “We are lawyers who like being lawyers,” says Margaret Behm, “we are proud of our profession and what we do.”
