We are willing to help a client with a discrete part of a case assuming the portion is severable from the remainder of the case and there are no potential or actual conflicts.
We strongly favor a team approach to ensure the most knowledgeable attorneys provide work on every issue, but the client will always approve and remain informed of how the work is delegated.
We stress attempting to resolve a case through the use of alternative dispute resolution where it is practicable.
We are involved in various pro bono programs across California.
We accentuate the core values of integrity, advocacy, and understanding. We create a vision with the client that develops the most efficient and cost-effective way to achieve the client's goals, while utilizing our knowledge, experience, and creativity to the client's advantage.
Client education is a crucial element of the legal process and the attorney-client relationship. A client should not be led blindly through a legal proceeding; rather the more the client understands his or her case the more beneficial it is for everyone involved.
We are always willing to review documents prepared by clients because we encourage client thought and opinion.
Where we believe that the client will adequately be able to represent themselves, we are willing to assist the client by providing appropriate coaching.
