Today marks a special day here at the Houk Law Firm as we celebrate our first anniversary as a firm! We are proud of the tremendous growth of the firm in the first year and are excited to continue serving clients here in the valley and throughout the country for years to come. We are delighted to announce that we have hired an attorney, Marina Kovačević, to join the firm! Marina joins our Founding Partner, Chris Houk, in representing clients and pursuing their legal interests. Although there will be some remarkable changes coming, our mission remains the same: pursuing justice on behalf of our clients. We appreciate all of your support and look forward to continue helping employers and employees obtain the results they deserve.
For as long as I've been a lawyer, I've known that I wanted to start my own law firm. I talked to many of you over the years about it and finally decided to take that leap of faith and create the Houk Law Firm exactly one-year-ago today. I could not have anticipated the outpouring of support that I received from our community. Of course, this past year has had its challenges, but it's been unbelievably rewarding. Your support, both online and in person, means the world to me, and I can't thank you all enough for your help.
A special mention is needed. Thanks to my office manager, James Montanez, who is the backbone of the firm and to Neel Ramesh, a brilliant soon-to-be lawyer, who has improved nearly every aspect of the operations of the firm. Justin Chornenky did a fabulous job designing the website; I'm immensely grateful. And to my wife, Nikki, who gave the green light just over a year ago to start the firm and continues to spend long hours ensuring the firm's success; I couldn't have done this without her.
This journey has truly been a dream come true; I'm doing exactly what I feel called to do: working hard to resolve civil rights disputes. I look forward to serving the community and our clients for years to come. As I reflect on the anniversary of the firm, I feel reinvigorated in my pursuit of justice and advocacy goals. Stay tuned for more updates about the firm – we have some really exciting new developments that I can't wait to share with you all!
If you are an employer or an employee who's in need of justice – we are here to help. Please reach out so that we can help right the wrong and fight for the justice and dignity that you deserve.
My philosophy of practicing law is to change the world one case at a time. I believe that aiming to deliver just results in every case builds a better society. My goal is to provide excellent representation as efficiently as possible.
