As a kid, I played on a baseball team that came close to last place two years straight. On the first day of my third year on the team, our coach gave us t-shirts that said "TEAM" in really big letters, and below it "me" in a much smaller font. Our coach made us wear these shirts to every practice and under our uniforms for every game. We won the championship that year and the next. That simple t-shirt put into perspective that we each had to commit to the TEAM, hold each other accountable and demand excellence from each other, and subordinate our individual self-interests for the TEAM in order for the TEAM to become champions. Freeborn is a true TEAM, a TEAM committed to providing the best legal services and value to our clients.
