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

No job is too small for L4SB, and therefore, L4SB provides whatever level of legal support, advice or assistance is needed by its clients.

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

L4SB supports any and all opportunities to decrease a client's legal expenses, especially as it relates to avoiding legal troubles in the future by sound decision-making early and often. Since L4SB is a small firm, its attorneys do all the work - at affordable rates or flat-fee.

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

L4SB often advises and participates in mediation and arbitration to resolve business disputes, as our motto is "avoid litigation, since it is expensive and often does not provide the desired strategic results for a business."

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

L4SB is involved in many local pro bono activities, and spends a significant amount of time giving back to the community within Albuquerque and New Mexico at large.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

L4SB is one of the few law firms founded and run by a successful business entrepreneur, who built the law firm from scratch around serving the needs of business. Few business lawyers offer 24x7 availability to its attorneys, or allow flexible payment options (using credit card or PayPal). Furthermore, L4SB works best over the Internet, helping its clients streamline their access to competent legal advice through the use of Internet technologies, including but not limited to social networks, encrypted (i.e. PGP) email and skype.

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

L4SB provides competent business lawyers to education its clients and provide legal advice necessary to run their business, and L4SB excels at providing template documents, processes and other repeatable mechanisms to reduce long-term legal costs and litigation. L4SB also strives to provide 24x7, immediate access to competent business lawyers, so business owners and business professionals can obtain answers to their legal questions, as those questions arise.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

L4SB is a leading proponent in the "flat-fee contract review," and provides a very cost-effective legal review service for legal documents prepared by its clients, oftentimes turning around documents within 24 hours or less. Contact L4SB for more information regarding its flat-rate contract review.

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

L4SB loves to coach and work with its clients, although L4SB is equivalent to "preventative medicine." Therefore, L4SB focuses on keeping its clients out of court. If litigation is necessary, L4SB is happy to refer its clients to experienced litigators, and oftentimes provides consultative services to help with the case.
