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

We strongly encourage our clients to have as much knowledge as possible from reputable, reliable sources. We also view our job as being both a strong advocate for our clients as well as an educator, informing our clients' about their legal rights, responsibilities, and what they can expect from their individual case. In this way, our clients feel more connected to the litigation process, and they are, generally, more satisfied with the outcome. This philosophy is achieved by working closely with our clients, something that big firms often cannot - or will not - do, and by bringing the latest technology to our practice of law to maximize efficiency and customize our delivery of legal services and information to suit our clients' unique needs.
