Clients who educate themselves help the attorney do a better job for them.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

No.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Yes. I have done this in the past where I will advise clients from behind the scene and also prepare legal documents on their behalf.

Anita Gumm

I was a Family Law associate for law firm Wilkinson & Sood from 1995 to 1998 and an associate attorney in Family Law for Van Sickle & Rowley from 1998 to 1999.

My life experience and working with people as a paralegal for many years helps me understand clients in need and in crisis.

I am an excellent listener and advisor for my clients. I am a very aggressive advocate on behalf of my clients. I also settle cases when it makes sense for my clients and they want to settle. My clients are the "boss" and make the final decisions after discussing their legal options.

Personal interests:

I enjoy hiking and walking with my three dogs on my free time. I read extensively on all subjects.
