Our Approach

Our approach is personal. Unlike larger firms, each client works directly with their attorney, not a small army of paralegals. New clients meet with their attorney, not an intake department. If we can, we will quote a flat fee that covers the whole cost of your case (or close to it). When you call, you talk to us. Our lawyers meet at the crossroads of experience and invention—sage wisdom mixed with novel approaches. Give us a try. You'll wish you called sooner.
