As a prior business owner, I am keenly aware of the need for today's law firms to provide cost effective legal services to business owners. Cost benefit analysis is incorporated into our legal recommendations so that they make good economic, as well as, legal sense.
One other thing is that, according to a recent client survey we did, our clients feel that we more approachable than most attorneys and speak in plain English to them instead of legalese.
OUR GOVERNING PRINCIPLES:
Personal and Long Term Commitment
Results-oriented, skilled attorneys place your interests foremost above all other considerations. Often solutions yielding fewer billable hours are recommended, which reflects our commitment to a long term relationship with our clients rather than only a short term payday.
Responsiveness and Availability
Responsiveness to your needs and schedules is at the core of our client service. Your attorney must be available when you need him or her. Our commitment in this area is reflected in our firm's "Immediate Response Time" policy where we return all phone calls/emails within 4 hours.
Doing business in today's economy requires that safeguards be in place for avoiding conflicts down the road,at which time litigation is the only solution. Our up-front involvement in major business decisions for your company allows for early identification and minimization of potential problems.
Alternative Fee Arrangements
We provide our clients with the experience and quality of a large firm, yet at significantly reduced fees. We offer flat fee rates, price ranges on several projects as an alternative to the traditional hourly-based rate.
Cost Effective Results
Often an attorney's ability to assist clients is limited by the client's budgetary constraints. Thus, cost-benefit analysis is done on our legal recommendations to make sure that the solutions recommended make good economic, as well as legal, sense.
