To raise awareness about the impassioned work that companies are doing to create great workplace cultures, Great Place to Work® has registered October 20 as Certification Nation Day, and Page One Legal is honored to be a Great Place to Work-Certified company who will come together with the rest of this community on October 20 through social media to recognize employees that drive culture forward and celebrate the tremendous accomplishment of getting Great Place to Work-Certified.
Reade Heredia, Marketing Director at Page One, said, “Great Place to Work Certification has allowed our company to continue to attract high-quality, like-minded professionals to our organization and it challenges us to think deeper and do better for our team and our clients.”
We asked the members of the Page One team about their experiences and favorite things about working at Page One. With their responses, we created a word cloud. We thought this is an excellent representation of why Page One Legal was certified as a Great Place to Work.
Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work, says, “I am looking forward to focus the world on the Certified companies that put employees first and focus on creating high-trust cultures that employees rave about. Based on our three decades of research, we know the powerful impact that a strong culture can have on every employee’s experience. Thriving employees increase revenue, profit and provide market leading customer experiences. I hope that Certification Nation Day can inspire other executives to create and sustain employee-first cultures.”

With all of his success, I hope that Tom Brady doesn’t forget he still owes me gas money.
On Sunday night April 16, 2000, I was on my way back to Foxboro after spending the weekend in Philadelphia visiting family and my future wife when I received the news. A few months earlier, I signed a free agent contract with the New England Patriots. It was only my second year out of college, and I was already with my third NFL team.
As a rookie, I signed a contract with the Oakland Raiders only to lose my roster spot to Heath Schuler. Soon after, I signed with the Dallas Cowboys and went to camp in Wichita Falls, Texas with the likes of Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvine, and Deion Sanders. My rookie year ended there when I was summoned to Jerry Jones’ office a week before the first game of the regular season. I was handed my walking papers and a plane ticket back home to Philadelphia.
I spent the rest of that season working two part-time jobs while keeping in shape and continuing to try out for NFL teams. At the end of that season, it looked like I’d be headed overseas to play in NFL Europe the following year. However, a couple weeks before the NFL Europe draft, I signed a contract with New England. I began training in their off-season program shortly after signing. During training, I slept on a friend’s couch for three weeks at his studio apartment on the outskirts of the Boston College campus. Four days a week I drove to Foxboro to lift, run, throw to receivers, and watch film preparing for the upcoming season.
But on that April 16th, while driving north on Interstate 95, I learned my time with the Patriots was probably over. I was listening to the draft on the radio when Bill Belicheck used the 199th overall pick on a quarterback from the University of Michigan. My excitement for the upcoming minicamp flew out the window somewhere between the George Washington Bridge in New York and the “Big Dig” going on in Boston.
As the future Hall of Famer announced last month his time in New England was over, I’m reminded of his first days in Foxboro. Our conversations in my Ford Explorer on the ride between the locker room and the practice fields will be etched in my mind forever.
At that time, Gillette Stadium was just beginning to be built and all the Bledsoe didn’t have room in his two-seat convertible Porsche, so Tom jumped in my Explorer. I told him my story, and we talked about how hard it was to make it in the NFL. The number of players on each NFL roster was so limited that even some extremely talented football players were often left to watch from afar with millions of football fans across the country.
A few years later, after stints in the XFL and the CFL, I began quarterbacking projects for litigation attorneys during the discovery phase of litigation. eDiscovery is an industry that is tough to break into but not nearly as hard as the NFL. I took the lessons I learned from my pro-football days and applied them to my new profession. I’ve met and worked with some tremendously successful people and had conversations with some of the most influential team owners, general managers, coaches, and players of all time. These encounters helped prepare me for working with an equally impressive client base.
To be successful in these industries you have to work hard, be persistent, understand your role, work together to achieve a goal or objective, be technically and tactically sound, and continuously learn and grow. To this day my conversations with a young, skinny, bright eyed, former Wolverine quarterback have stuck with me. His desire to be the best of all time was evident from his first days in the league. And even as I lost my job to that humble kid, I am grateful for having shared that time with him. His story has been an inspiration to me and continues to challenge me to overcome tough situations in my own personal and professional life.

At Page One, we view our role as that of a trusted partner.
One of the main tenets of being a partner is being proactive to client needs instead of only reactive to their requests. It’s making sure that we are prepared for whatever may come our way. It’s making sure that clients won’t ever need to worry if we are there for them.
Even as Nashville picks itself up from the recent tornado, we have been preparing for the increasing spread of the COVID-19. In doing so we have kept a laser-focus on protecting our clients’ litigation needs as well as the health of both our team and of our community.
In monitoring the global and local public health authorities, including the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, we have gained insight into how to handle the situation.
We look to our core beliefs to guide us in our implementation – Driven, Positive, Committed, Professional.
We are following our data integrity and accessibility protocols to make sure our eDiscovery services are unaffected.
We have eliminated travel that is not mission critical.
We have been canceling in person meetings, while pushing remote access demos.
We have been providing ongoing updates to the team regarding cleanliness standards.
We immediately acquired the necessary cleaning products to halt the spread of the virus.
We have been working with our teams to make sure that any team member that may be showing signs of illness, even not associated with COVID-19, is able to stay home.
Beyond all of the hand washing, disinfecting, and the social distancing, there is something far more important at play. We believe in the resiliency of the human spirit. As a people, the virus may try to knock us down, but we will always persevere.
