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

I believe I am good at understanding financial problems and proposing solutions.

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

This is not a problem and can be of some assistance. It is pretty important though for the individual to not delay or wait while reading or studying the law. Time periods can expire. Events can overtake individuals.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

The clients are not really going to prepare the best documents. An outline of ideas can be helpful.

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

I do not want to do this.
