What's in a name?

pal-a-din: a heroic champion and a strong supporter or defender of a cause.

Illustrative of the firm’s “think outside the box” culture, the founders wanted to shift away from a traditional name. They wanted a name that meant something to them and to their clients. For many, the name Paladin harkens back to the 1960s TV western starring Richard Boone, Have Gun - Will Travel, where the starring character, a sophisticated hired gun named Paladin was willing to help others resolve their conflicts through negotiation or use of force. For others, the name Paladin is associated with knights in shining armor adhering to a code of chivalry while vigorously defending their cause.  Likewise, for fans of Dungeons & Dragons, the paladin is a holy knight, crusading in the name of goodness, law and order.  At Paladin Law Group, we strive to defend your cause with the highest level of personal integrity and professional legal services.
