Diversity

Our strength lies

in our differences.

Our
Perspective
Collins Einhorn Farrell adheres to a strict policy against discrimination and harassment based on race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, veteran's status, genetic information, or any other legally protected status. The goal is a collegial and respectful work-related environment with respect and dignity for everyone.
Age
We have experienced firsthand that excellence has no age requirements; what matters to us is competence, hard-work, and collaboration. Collins Einhorn has a robust variety of team members, ranging from students and recent grads, established professionals, and post-retirees. Regardless of where you land in the generational spectrum, you are considered an equally valuable part of our team with a perspective worthy of being heard.
Disability
At Collins Einhorn, we focus on the talents and abilities of our team members, not their limitations. Individuals with disabilities ranging from vision, mental health, physical mobility, learning, communication, social relationships, or any neurodiverse variations will be equally considered and accommodated to the best of our ability.
Gender
At Collins Einhorn, everyone possesses equal opportunities regardless of gender. The proof: 47% of our firm leadership (partners, shareholders, and administrative management) are female. This includes our CEO and co-managing partner, Theresa Asoklis. We believe that our gender-diverse team is a valuable asset, and we compensate our employees as such, ensuring equal pay and tailored professional development opportunities.
Race,
Religion,
& Ethnicity
Racial, ethnic, and religious diversity in our firm enriches our daily environment. Diversity not only improves our company culture but also provides us with the multicultural perspective needed to provide the best service to our clients.
Military
Veterans
Whether you are currently transitioning into a civilian career or served in the past, military training and experience are highly valued for their ability to promote strong discipline, teamwork, problem-solving skills, and leadership. At Collins Einhorn, we believe the knowledge you've obtained serving our country can translate into a fulfilling career as part of our team.
Family &
Lifestyle
At Collins Einhorn, we believe that it is critical to provide our team with the resources and schedule flexibility they need to maintain balance in their life outside work. Our family-friendly benefits include flex-time, half-day Fridays in the summer, and a generous parental leave policy.
LGBT+
Being yourself is not something you should have to compromise on when building a career. All employees and candidates who are members of the LGBT+ community are protected against bias or discrimination of any kind.
Students
Collins Einhorn Farrell encourages students from every social and economic background to consider a career in the legal profession. We strive to support these students in the realization of their full potential. Our approach to diversity is an investment in the future of our practice and in the broader legal profession.
