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

Yes. I do this quite often.

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

Most cost effective for client.

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

Mediation and arbitration are used successfully when best suited for the client's interest.

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

Yes.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Personal relationship with clients.

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

It is very important that clients remain informed. A client should feel empowered to educate themselves on an issue, but if they don't have the time I can bring them up to speed on the issues that face them.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes.

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

No. This is a really bad idea.
