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

Yes, if it is appropriate to do so.

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

I personally handle all legal matters, and my clients are not pushed off to a less-experienced attorney. That said, I utilize a paralegal and law clerk to remain efficient and cost effective.

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

I regularly represent my clients in mediations. I have also served as an independent arbitrator in the common pleas court several times.

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

Yes, on a case-by-case basis.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

I have twelve years of civil defense practice, including insurance defense. That experience allows me to understand the strategies of the insurance carriers.

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

I think it is great for clients to educate themselves. Even when they need a lawyer to help, educated clients are a bonus.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes

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

If the situation is appropriate, yes, I would help clients who want to represent themselves.
