We are a small firm. As of October 2004, when this was last updated, there were two lawyers, a law clerk, two paralegals, and two case managers.
We pride ourselves in providing personal attention to our clients. For many years, we were not listed in the phone book or the internet. Our clients came from referrals. Although we now advertise, we strive to provide our clients with the same attention and responsiveness that helped build the firm to where it is today. We do that by trying to treat all our clients the same way we would if they were family or good friends.
Our practice is to try and keep our clients up to date at every stage of their case so they always know what is happening. One way we do that is by providing them with copies of correspondence that comes in and goes out. We also try to keep them periodically updated as to anything significant that is happening on the case, and if they have any questions, they are always free to pick up the phone and call us.
Most of our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, i.e. no recovery, no fees. On most cases we advance costs and expenses. On some major or complex cases, we may associate in or work with other firms. Over the years, through our involvement with ATLA (American Trial Lawyers Association) and the Trial Lawyers College, as well as numerous consumer attorneys associations, we have developed a network of other lawyers and friends who we occasionally will work with or with whom we partner with on some cases.
When we do associate in other counsel to work with us, we typically share the attorneys fees with the other lawyer(s). The fee to the client does not increase.
We provide a no-cost, no-obligation consultation. We are very selective in the cases we take. We only take cases we believe the person has a real injury that was caused by the fault of another party or defective product, etc. We do not view the practice of law as a lottery system. We will not take cases that we believe are frivolous or lack merit.
If you have suffered a serious injury through the fault of someone else and are not being treated reasonably, we would be happy to talk with you. Call us toll-free at (888) 227-2771 for a no-cost, no-obligation consultation. If we are not in a position to take your case or it is outside our practice area, we will try to assist you in finding an appropriate attorney for your problem.
