Yes in the appropriate case and where in our professional opinion it would be in the best interest of the client to do so.
We try very hard in every case to staff the particular matter with the appropriate person. If work can be done effectively by a lower billing rate individual, we strive to have that individual perform the work. We pride ourselves on the cost effectiveness of our services and our ability to not "over lawyer" a particular matter and yet still get results for our clients.
We use them in any case where it is appropriate, cost effective, and the client desires to use such a process.
We are a small AV Rated firm with tremendous experience in our area of expertise. Since we practice all types of bankruptcy law, we are able to bring a unique perspective to problems that our clients may have because we can see the problem not only from our clients' perspective, but also from the perspective of the other side, which can be very valuable.
We think it is appropriate, but in many instances it should not be a substitute for seeking actual legal advice from a professional.
We are willing to do so under the right set of facts and circumstances.
Yes, in the appropriate case and where in our professional opinion it would be in the best interest of the client to do so.
