I'd like it to look classy and a bit more modern and nothing to do with court rooms (no mahogany desk pictures etc.). This is not a litigation practice, but specialized corporate/agreement practice.
Update: I am hoping to send some kind of positive message along with the logo, rather than just the initials. E.g. (can't use because a friend is using this already:) a puzzle piece fitting into a larger puzzle; or some kind of symbol of growth, teamwork, service, etc.
Update: how about just a bird? or an owl or a globe or...just want to see what else might look good. So far the redwood tree in abstract form is my favorite
Update: Please submit a few new ideas around redwood trees, owls, the idea of growth, or partnership, teamwork. I am looking for something modern, maybe abstract (but doesn't have to be), classy, not whimsical, sophisticated. But please also let's keep working on the designs you already have - so far I like the squiggly tree, the tall redwood tree, and the black owl facing left the best. Please let me know if you have any questions.
