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

I met someone in the Elder Care field who impressed upon me the need for attorneys to represent elderly clients.

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

If it makes a client feel more comfortable and able to accept my assistance, it can be helpful.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I have found it is difficult to provide proper representation to a client who prepares their own documents. Because the documents were not prepared by me, I did not have the opportunity to do my investigation and cannot properly advise the client.

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

I would have to answer this question on a case by case basis depending upon the type of matter and the sophistication of the client.
