Most law firms in this area have terrible logos and all feature very generic text combined with the 'Scales of Justice' pictorial mark or a hammer pictorial mark. We really would like for you to come up with something modern and professional.
**** EDIT 2: Please try to include a gavel in your design. Many designers are taking a route of having a big letter R in their designs. If you go that route, we would really like to see a gavel as the left leg of the R. Try both directions, with heavy side up and heavy side down. Play around with the thickness of the heavy portion and the thickness of the stem.
Please do consider: The use of pictorial marks that are relevant to the justice system & lawyer industry such as a gavel. Please do consider the excellent use of typography.
Stay away from: The red, white, and blue color scheme together. Stay away from stars. Stay away from the scales of justice.
Do not feel as you are limited to what we mentioned above, those are merely the only ideas we came up with.
You are much more creative and capable than we are and we are excited to see what else you can come up with.
