In Beijing, the Forbidden City has a history stretching back to 1420 A.D. Upon its completion, it was the Chinese imperial palace of the Ming Dynasty. The first Emperor of the Ming Dynasty was born in Anhui Province — the same Province where Founding Partner Shawn McMillan’s oldest daughter was born. Among the Forbidden City’s rich artistic treasures is a green tile wall depicting golden lotus flowers. Our firm adopted the lotus symbol because of its meaning in Asian culture. A lotus blooms despite unfavorable conditions, rising from the dark, murky bottom of a pond to display its delicate beauty on the water’s surface. It is because of this that the lotus symbolizes both resilience and beauty.
Overcoming adversity to facilitate growth is at the core of everything we do. McMillan PLLC began just as Shawn McMillan and his wife, Anna, adopted their second daughter from South Korea. Her older sister was adopted from China only two years earlier. Knowing the beauty of his daughters and what they have overcome, Shawn honored them by adopting the lotus flower as our logo.
