Here is the mission of The Alliance Legal Group:
"To operate a Christ-centered law practice, emphasizing and relying on biblical principles in order to effectively and efficiently serve the legal and spiritual needs of our clients, community, and employees, and to support His perfect will."
As you can see by our website, we boldly and unashamedly declare that we are a Christian law firm. This decision was made over 15 years ago when Attorney Steve Taylor received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. At that time he resolved that he would transform his secular law office into a Christian one and not hesitate to tell others about it. One of his first moves was to hire a fulltime, vocational minister to fill the role of office chaplain so that both clients and employees might have opportunities to attend Bible studies and prayer sessions.
As the current office chaplain, I would like to delineate some of our distinctives as a Christian law firm and then clear up some misconceptions. Should you decide to avail yourself of our services, you will have a good idea of what to expect. Part of my reason for this is my suspicion that some people might believe these two notions—“Christian” and “law firm”—are incompatible.
In some respects it is highly risky to announce to the community that we are a Christ-centered law firm, because in so doing we are setting very high standards for ourselves, not to mention the possible misunderstandings that might arise. No matter. We willingly face this risk because we do take our Christian faith seriously, and although we may not always fulfill our calling to every client’s complete satisfaction, we do desire to offer our clients something more than just legal assistance. In fact in many cases the client is struggling with other painful realities that accompany the legal issue, whether it is the pain of divorce, the anxiety of bankruptcy, the fear of facing a fine or worse--the point is this: should you decide to visit us, we believe you will not only receive competent and conscientious legal assistance, but also spiritual guidance and encouragement should you desire it.
First, we want to make it very clear that not everyone who works for our office is a Christian. It has never been a condition for employment, nor should it be. What it does mean, however, is that the primary leaders of the law firm are Christians. Indeed the great majority of our employees are Christians and do not hesitate to say so.
Second, should you come to one of our offices, expect to receive competent legal assistance and advice from a firm that cares for you personally. If we fail to measure up to these standards, we will do what we can to make things right. Please remember that just because we answer to the Lord, does not mean we are flawless. But it does mean we do strive to meet His standards.
Third, do not be surprised if our attorneys open your meeting in prayer. And if you come to our office with prayer concerns, please let us know. We really do pray for our clients and their situations. We have office prayer meetings every morning, Monday through Thursday, where your requests are confidentially brought before the Lord.
The idea of a Christian law firm in this day and age is undergirded by the reality of the Kingdom of God as vibrant, active, and advancing in this world to call people out of darkness into His light. For this reason, our law firm is not just a business, but a vision.
