What are your firm's strengths and style?

Every member of our firm recognizes that we are being asked for help at a time of crisis. Our goal is to recognize each client’s needs at a very difficult time, and to be attentive and responsive to these needs. Educating a client and formulating a strategic plan is our first order of business. We do everything in our power to assist a client in coming to a negotiated settlement. We think of litigation as a last resort, to be used when necessary. If cases can be resolved out of court, we often use collaboration or mediation. We strive to be accessible to our clients as issues develop. We almost always are able to return a phone call during the same day, or if not, within 24 hours. Our goal is to involve a client in making his or her own decisions with our legal advice. Keeping a client informed is our obligation and priority.
