Spirit of the West

Lawyers have been the real peacemakers of the West. We have always been in the small towns promoting mining and ranching and helping families make a new life. The Spirit of the West, commissioned by Jeff Diamond, is a mural by Mark Spore. It covers the entire east wall of the Jeff Diamond Law Firm headquarters as a gift to the public and the legal profession.
