Diversity

Miller Starr Regalia is dedicated to diversity through the systematic recruitment, development and promotion of attorneys and staff of all backgrounds and experiences.  We believe that a diverse workforce creates a better work environment, makes us better lawyers and enables us to better serve our clients' needs.

Diversity was instilled by our founding shareholders as a core value of the firm since 1968 when Ed Regalia co-founded the Kennedy-King Scholarship Fund in memory of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy  to provide college scholarships to minority students from Contra Costa County.

Miller Starr Regalia continues to uphold the ideals of our founders and considers diversity to include individuals of differing life experiences and backgrounds as well as protected characteristics such as gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability and age.

Our diversity goals are:

• To foster an inclusive, congenial, and professional environment that respects and values differences among our attorneys and staff and supports their professional development and advancement.

• To successfully recruit, develop and retain attorneys and staff of diverse backgrounds and characteristics.

The firm’s Diversity Committee includes members of the firm’s Executive Committee, Hiring Committee, associates and staff.  The committee is tasked with taking specific planning and monitoring efforts to keep the firm continually focused on achieving its diversity goals.

We also encourage our attorneys to participate in professional organizations that promote the advancement of female and minority attorneys.  The following are some of these organizations which the firm supports:  

•  Bar Association of San Francisco (BASF)

•  California Minority Counsel Program (CMCP)

•  Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW)

•  Contra Costa County Bar Association (CCCBA)

•  Professional Women in Building (PWB)
