Kerbs strives to maintain the community-oriented nature of one of the most respected full-service law firms in Southern California. In his CEO Profile with the Press-Enterprise, the Inland Empire’s major newspaper, Kerbs talks about how ties to the community are important to Reid & Hellyer.

“When we hire we look at each recruit as a potential partner in five to seven years, depending how they develop,” Kerbs said. “We learned over the years it is important to find law school graduates with ties to the Inland Empire, people who have either lived here, have family here or know people here and will not be lured by law firms that typically pay more in San Diego, Orange County or Los Angeles.”

Michael-Kerbs.jpgBeing in charge of the firm’s day-to- day operations gives Kerbs an important role in providing direction for the firm. A 15 year partner, Kerbs ensures that the Inland Empire’s third-largest firm is run smoothly as a business by fostering long-lasting relationships with current clients, interacting with them in a positive manner and getting the firm’s 20 attorneys involved in their communities.
