Uncertainty . . .
The hardest part of facing a legal problem, for most people, is the uncertainty of not knowing what is going to happen. Legal disputes are often life-changing. Worrying over the outcome of your case is stressful. We understand this, and we know how to help.
No attorney can tell you at the beginning your case what the ultimate outcome will be. But we can take away some of the fear that comes from not knowing what will happen. How?
- Knowledge: I’ve been through your type of case many times and I can give you a “roadmap” of what to expect, the best and worst possible scenarios, and how the law applies to the facts of your case. Sharing my knowledge not only gives you the information you need to make decisions in your case, it removes some of the worry.
- Diligence: I will take action in your case promptly and you will have access to the documented progress of your case at all times. We utilize secure online case management systems that allow you to access important case information 24/7 – things like: important dates, documents, and a record of our communications.
- Communication: We want you to understand everything that is happening in your case and we welcome your questions. In addition to the traditional calls, office visits, and mail, we provide a secure email portal and video conferencing for your convenience. We know that communication is key in resolving your case and in reducing your stress and worry.
Please be aware that we continue to work virtually. If you need an office visit, please call or email and we will arrange to meet you. If you drop by unannounced, we’re probably in court or working offsite.
Please note that only the attorney can set fees in your case due to State ethical rules. I will quote a fee structure when we meet for the first time based on what is involved with your case. We offer both traditional retainers, fee for service, and flat fee billing depending on the type of case.
If we can’t help with your particular case, we’ll let you know. Not every attorney is familiar with every area of law. But we do know who is! Rest assured that if I don’t think I can do the very best job for you, I’ll send you to somebody who can.
