Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

Yes.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

The risk of cost efficiency is born by the attorney, not the client, because most services are performed on a reasonable fixed fee, no surprises basis.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

We are not a litigation firm, so this does not apply.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

Yes

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Focus is on business, tax & estate planning issues. Attorney is dual qualified as both a lawyer, and tax accountant, with an education that includes a Bachelor and Masters Degree in Accounting in Tax from Brigham Young University, currently the nation's #1 ranked accounting program. In addition to years of legal experience, attorney also has several years of experience working for the "big" accounting firms of Ernst & Young & Deloitte. This combined legal and accounting education and experience provides a powerful combination to help business owners navigate complicated legal and tax issues, often resulting in thousands of dollars of tax savings.

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

We take plenty of time to explain legal and tax issues to each client's satisfaction. Some clients want an in-depth discussion and understanding. Others are comfortable with a general overview, combined with the knowledge that their attorney is competent and looking out for their best interest at all times.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes

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

In general yes. In many cases, this approach does not make sense due to unnecessary risks to the client.
