Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

No, in these practice areas, that is not feasible.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

I handle all facets of all cases.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

I am open to anything that will facilitate settlement, but this occurs currently about 15% of the time.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

I regularly do pro bono cases but that it done on a case by case instance.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

I am a sole practitioner. Your case will be handled personally — my me.

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

I believe that an informed client is the best client. In every case, the Claimant has to work along with me at the attorney. In many cases they have to work just as hard.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes, there is no downside to reviewing any documents.

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

No, I will represent any client with a legitimate case, but I owe my time and efforts to those clients who believe in me enough to retain me.
