OUR TEAM APPROACH:
One of the things that sets Knowles & Associates P.C. apart is its team approach. Instead of one lawyer working with a case, all lawyers and appropriate staff take an interest in and participate in the development of each case as needed, which results in lower rates for overall time billed.
Our charges reflect the lower overhead and efficiency of a small firm.
The firm does not plan to grow in size by great measure as it believes, that by limiting its areas of practice together with the implementation of modern technology, it has the ability to compete with all other firms in the services it provides.
We explain our billing before our contractual representation begins. We keep our clients informed of the work performed and the charges due on a regular basis. You may elect to pay for fees on a hourly rate, flat fee basis or some combination thereof.
CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION:
Our office and legal staff attend professional seminars on a regular basis. Mr. Knowles has served as an instructor at the Indiana University Indianapolis Law School.
FLEXIBLE MEETING SITES:
Sometimes clients prefer to meet at another location. We are willing to meet with you at your home, business, hospital, extended care facility or wherever and whenever you prefer, in order to be responsive to your needs.
SEMINARS FOR CLIENTS:
To make sure our Estate Planning clients have an opportunity to learn about current topics, and to keep current on the law, we offer free periodic workshops to clients.
