How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

The combination of being able to consult on business matters and assisting clients in a variety of business and personal financial areas fit by interests and background.

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

We believe that clients are best able to manage their business and legal issues with a full understanding of the law and legal issues and work with clients to educate them about the legal issues and to help us better understand their business.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

We greatly value client's input and assistance, but do not find that preparation of documents by clients is cost effective in the long run.

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

No.
