The BMD Difference – What Sets us Apart?

The BMD Difference – What Sets us Apart?

Listen. Solve. Empower. This is not just a simple tagline. Instead, it is the cornerstone of BMD’s success. So what sets us apart from other law firms? Without a doubt, it is our approach and focus on our clients’ needs. We don’t just aim to meet their needs, we strive to exceed them.

Since opening our first office in Akron, Ohio in 2000, BMD has continued to grow by offering even more specialized and sophisticated counsel to our clients. However, even as we expanded to five offices, we never lost sight of our core principles: integrity, competence, commitment and personal accountability. Each of these values ensures that our clients are our number one priority. BMD is a sophisticated, full-service law firm that provides creative and innovative solutions to meet — and exceed — our clients’ needs.

Listen. Solve. Empower.
