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

We always encourage our clients becoming knowledgeable of the topic(s) that is(are) relevant to their particular case. Without a firm foundation of knowledge, a client will better understand what he or she is facing. However, the legal profession is one that takes years of study and many exams in order to practice - and even longer to master. So be sure the resources you are using are reliable and true - otherwise it will only do both you and your lawyer a disservice when you take the word of Google, Esq. over the lawyer you pay to work on your behalf.

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

"He who represents himself has a fool for a client." -Abraham Lincoln

No. There is no amount of preparation I could provide to teach a prospective client about how to successfully represent themselves in an open courtroom. It takes years of education and even more in practice to learn the nuances of advocating in open court.

Furthermore, when you are the subject of or to a lawsuit, it is many times an emotional situation. Representing one's self is difficult because of the effect it has on the psyche. Therefore, even I would not represent myself in court - because Honest Abe was right.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

Having spent several years as an Assistant State Attorney, Mr. Meyers understands the ins-and-outs of criminal prosecution. He knows how the prosecutors build their cases, better preparing him to tear them apart. While at the State Attorney's Office, Matthew Meyers served as a supervisor in the Misdemeanor Domestic Violence Unit, on the Human Trafficking Unit, and on the Traffic Homicide Unit. Having successfully tried state and federal cases ranging from simple misdemeanors to complex felonies, we have the experience needed to defend your case.

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

As a criminal defense attorney, these tools are not generally available in their traditional senses. However, we utilize person-to-person negotiations and discussions to resolve matters outside of court, limiting our clients need to disrupt their daily lives.
