How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Because these are areas where value can be added. I don't enjoy billing dollars times hours and not adding value for a client.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I accept clients with various levels of self education or knowledge.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Case by case, but easier to do things right the first time.

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

Only in rare circumstances.

Doug Bernacchi

Prior to 1990, I attended law school and I worked at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange as an Arbitration board member. Prior to that, I worked in New York for Chase Bank as a regulatory compliance officer.

My experience is what my clients rely on to help them relax. Often perspective is needed to address a crisis effectively and after 20 years, I bring experience and perspective to nearly every situation.

I have been told that I am friendly, so my style is fast, friendly service.

Personal interests:

I enjoy baseball and sports, but most of all I enjoy working. I have four successful children.
