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

Yes, depending on the particulars.

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

In almost all cases, only one attorney will be handling your matter. We do not load up our billing statements with multiple "hands" on the file or employ an army of paralegals to manage documents. We will occasionally "outsource" document intensive projects at a cost well below the hourly rates of in-house paralegals.

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

Very frequently. Mediation is required in most cases in the jurisdictions in which we practice.

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

Yes.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

At Wood & Ramirez, we are committed to cost-effective and compassionate representation. Our clients get the skill & experience of two former "big firm" attorneys at "small firm" rates.

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

This is necessary only if a client intends to represent him or herself. When we are involved, it is part of our job to make sure the client is educated about the legal issues impacting them in our representation.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes.

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

Yes, on a limited basis.
