We believe in forming win-win attorney-client relationships that involve the client in the legal process in a way that is frankly, untraditional. Having been both providers and consumers of legal services it has become glaringly apparent to us of the disparity existing between attorneys and the public.
To that end, we've strategically designed our law practice to operate with a level of efficiency, accountability and integrity that truly lessens the cost of legal services to the public and aspires to educate and inform. That we think you will find, decidedly untypical.
WE PRACTICE WITH EFFICIENCY
We work in a team environment with client, attorney and staff having clearly defined roles and responsibilities.
We utilize technology to keep client fees and law office expenses to a minimum.
We return client telephone calls and e-mails within one business day.
We immediately send copies to clients of ALL documents received, filed or sent on their behalf.
We inform clients of procedural and legal realities affecting their desired outcome and cost.
We set proactive goals, strategies and deadlines to keep client's legal matter on task and on time.
WE OPERATE WITH ACCOUNTABILITY
We fully disclose all fee, expense and billing terms to clients.
We always engage in written fee agreements with clients.
We implement billing practices that are fair to our clients -- We NEVER block bill.
We always advise clients on the estimated cost of implementing legal strategies before undertaking them.
We assign to an Assistant all legal tasks that do not truly need to be performed by an Attorney.
WE ADVOCATE WITH INTEGRITY
We diligently execute mutually agreed-upon strategies to achieve the desired outcome at minimum cost.
We work only on issues that are directly pertinent to the matter and investigate side, ancillary issues only when they show a reasonable probability of affecting the results.
We continually update our legal knowledge regarding changes in the law and innovative new legal strategies.
We educate clients and demystify the legal process which enables them to confidently participate and make informed decisions in their matter.
We empower clients to prevent future legal problems.
