Depends on the case.

Solving my clients' problems so they can go back to running their business. That's the result that every single one of my clients seeks, every time.
Our clients are busy people, but our clients are smart and successful people. That means they can be huge assets in their representation, but they have varying degrees of time availability to help. Part of our job is to prevent or solve a business problem for you, so you can focus on your core business. That is what we do. On the other hand, an informed and involved client is a successful client. We strive to strike the balance between gaining efficiencies through capitalizing on your inherent knowledge of the facts of your case, while taking the problem off your hands and solving it.
You simply won't find a more prepared business attorney. Like in business, in law you win by being prepared. Period. By the time your case is underway, there won't be a single person more informed about the documents that form the basis of your claims than your lawyer. That is how it should be. At Slinde Nelson, that is how it is.
I have many, many long term clients. We take a long view of our representation. It's not about one case; it's about a long term relationship with a client. Our business clients call us with questions all the time, sometimes daily for long stretches. I very frequently advise my clients to attempt to resolve problems without my involvement. Where a business solution is available, it is almost always a better solution than a legal one. I learned that as a businessman myself, and it is a central principle of my Portland business law practice.
