Umana also thanked all his relations, learned colleagues, friends, among others, especially his mentor, the first Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) produced by the University of Benin and former attorney general and commissioner for justice, Edo State, Chief Charles Edosomwan, for honouring the invitation. The legal luminary disclosed that the vision of the law firm technically and stylistically is to do things well land differently to all manner of persons, stressing that this is his love letter to Akwa Ibom people whom he loved and cherished dearly. He explained further that the office was well equipped with modern facilities in a way that they could be reached from anywhere in the world, averring that they are out to correct some impressions in the legal system which ought not to be and put in their best which they represent.

According to the US-based lawyer, "In law, when people come to you as lawyers, they come at their weakest spot, they are distressed, confused and want leadership, they want a hand holding, so we are ready to hold the hands of our clients and lift them up, and take them to where they want to go.â€ Ethically, Umana maintained that the office would uphold the highest ethical conduct in a way that when clients leave, they would feel satisfied and have a sense of belonging because of the treatment given them. The special guest of honour, Chief Charles Edosomwan, SAN, remarked that Umana is a man after his heart as he was vibrant, strong, clever and full of life in the University of Benin, observing that he became the ambassador of the university and strong hope in America Edosomwan, SAN, commended Umana for the vision of coming home to duplicate what he is doing in the U.S.A, thereby adding value to his people and the society at large and prayed that a lot of goodness emanate from the venture. Earlier in a brief exhortation, Pastor Eva Gregory of Living Faith Church, Abuja, admonished all to give their lives to Christ as that is the greatest relationship that would lead them to eternity. Gregory thanked God for giving Umana the unction to establish the law firm in Akwa Ibom State as this would add more value to the state and nation as a whole.
