I'd like a simple, elegant, and confident typeface with a beautiful and strong ampersand. I prefer all uppercase letters but open to lowercase if it's right. The words "Attorneys at Law" should be placed under the firm name. I prefer serif typefaces unless I'm convinced otherwise.
The ampersand should not overpower the text.
My preference for the firm name is black. Color on the ampersand is encouraged. The design should remain elegant if design is printed black and white.
I'd enjoy a design that transforms the ampersand into art that conveys that our firm does criminal defense AND still looks/reads like an ampersand. For example, make the ampersand look like open handcuffs AND an ampersand.
Please avoid generic symbols that do not distinguish our firm from other law firms (i.e. courthouse columns, gavels, mountains, scales of justice). Designs that use letters inside any type of shield will be rejected.
With all this in mind, I remain open to creativity from professionals.
