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

I started my career with a mentor that practiced in the fields of law that I have chosen. He taught me how to practice and showed me the interesting aspects of our chosen fields.

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

The more clients know about their endeavors the better. An educated client makes the tasks of the attorney easier to understand and implement.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I will generally review documents prepared by clients unless it is obvious that an attorney prepared document will meet their needs better.

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

It depends on what is meant by "represent themselves." In negotiations the client may be fully capable of self representation, however, I would not coach clients wishing to litigate for themselves except in small claims matter.
