Our Story + Value

Our Story

Modus was born out of the recognition that, simply put, there is a better, more efficient way for attorneys, MBEs/WBEs, and other small businesses to grow their companies.

Currently, attorneys, MBEs/WBEs, and other small businesses spend far too much time, money, and energy dealing with the burden of handling standard administrative and office needs that are a necessity to the day-to-day functioning of their companies.

Similarly, attorneys, MBEs/WBEs, and other small businesses often waste substantial time traveling to and from networking events that often lead to little or no meaningful connections.
 

Modus was founded upon the belief that, when it comes to the office, networking and educational needs of attorneys, MBEs/WBEs, and other small businesses, Modus can improve upon the status quo by providing valuable services focused on these three areas through the power of O.N.E
