MFJ’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism

We strive to have a workplace that includes staff and management from all cultures, lifestyles, and experiences. MFJ  strives to eliminate discrimination and promote equity, in the workplace and in its practice, based on race, color, national origin, immigrant or citizenship status, disability, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, caregiver status, family composition, domestic violence survivor status, age, religion, salary history, arrest record, or credit history. We acknowledge each other as equals, while recognizing the value of our diverse circumstances and backgrounds when it comes to pursuing justice for our clients.
