WHO WE ARE.
The seeds of Cedar Tree Law Firm were modest. With only subtle prompts and motivation, an idea was planted: that the most effective form of advocacy was one that concentrated on community development and serving the entities that make up the local economy. This seed began to take root only by persistent relationship building with investors, businesses, startups, and professional agents.
The Firm’s practice prioritizes combining technical industry experience with legal skills for effective service. In the process of acquiring industry knowledge, the Firm’s roots stretched across the southeast region and beyond. Now, as the Firm sprouts upward, it can serve clients in legal transactions while also presenting relational opportunities that promote success amidst an innovative and volatile market environment.
