Dedication, perseverance and hard work are essential to successfully hike the highest mountain in Africa; the same characteristics are required to be an attorney of excellence and integrity.
Jim Lake is a partner in the Tampa office of Thomas & LoCicero. He is also a husband, father and active member of the community. Yesterday, the Tampa Bay Times published an article about a recent trip Jim took to Africa with his college-aged son Thomas to hike Mount Kilimanjaro. The trip was the realization of a long-held dream of the father-son team, and the fulfillment of a promise Jim made to Thomas when he was a very young boy.
Thomas & LoCicero places a high value on family, and the firm recognizes its priority and importance in the lives of its employees. It was a great experience for the attorneys, paralegals and administrative staff to watch the progress of Jim and Thomas on their trip by reading posts and looking at photos on Facebook. Their dedication and hard work inspired us all as we cheered them on from afar throughout this awe-inspiring experience.
