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

Yes; although this must be handled carefully to retain the benefits being sought without jeopardizing the success of the effort.

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

We assign the legal work to the lowest cost professional who can do an efficient and effective job. Often this requires a collaboration between attorneys, legal assistants and support staff.

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

We use mediation, arbitration and collaboration whenever it appears to be the best method for reaching a just and fair resolution of the matter. In practice, this does not occur very often as we are able to resolve many disputes or disagreements by direct communication.

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

We advise not for profit charities and low income individuals on a reduced or no fee basis pro bono publico. In addition, James Oberholtzer serves in the House of Delegates for the Oregon State Bar Association.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Our ability to bring big city (Chicago) skills and experience to all the matters we handle and a commitment to finding simple, creative solutions to our clients' needs.

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

We relate to our clients as individuals. Each has their own strengths and weaknesses. We work collaboratively with our clients and encourage them to do as much and contribute as much time and effort to their projects as they wish.

We find that the more knowledgeable a client is concerning legal requirements and opportunities, the more successful we are in working together and the better the outcomes.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes. In some situations this can be a valuable cost savings to the clients. In others it can take more time and be more costly. We advise the clients whenever the potential cost savings are being overcome by the additional work.

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

Yes; although it is an unusual legal matter where we are consulted and the clients can make court appearances on their own behalf.
