“Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody's going to know whether you did it or not.” -Oprah Winfrey

Many people have negative impressions of lawyers. Hiring an attorney means putting your trust into someone to act on your behalf, which can be daunting, especially in the legal field where the stakes are high. Too many people have been spurned by an attorney breaking this trust: it could be a family member, a friend, or a neighbor.


Here at Malm & LaFave, we strive to fight this trend. As a small firm, we thrive on honesty, we wouldn't be around for so long if we didn't. We do this by giving honest legal advice; representing our clients fairly in the judicial system; and providing transparency in the work we do. We hope by doing this, you can rest easy you are being represented by an attorney with integrity.
