Our business is helping your business succeed
We focus our law firm on those areas that businesses typically need most – from litigation to transactions and most things in-between.
We help businesses solve their legal issues
Our practice areas are designed to support and complement our clients’ business needs. That may mean pursuing a lawsuit for a breach of contract, negotiating a purchase contract, drafting employee noncompete agreements, or developing best practices for trade secret protection. If it’s important to your business, it’s important to us.
Lawyers are, unfortunately, a necessary evil. If we lived in a perfect world where everyone got along and honored their business commitments, we wouldn’t need lawyers. Nobody enjoys picking up the phone and calling their lawyer as it usually means trouble on the horizon. We aim to make that process a little less stressful and a little more fruitful. We implement strategies best suited to accomplish our clients’ goals and do our best to anticipate pitfalls/red flags. We think every attorney should do the same, but then we suppose there wouldn’t be quite so many lawyer jokes out there.
This is mostly a trick question as it suggests there is information you should NOT provide. To properly represent our clients, we need to know all the details – good, bad, and mundane. You can hire a cheerleader for much less than you can hire an attorney – our job is to advise and guide you (even if the advice was not quite what you wanted to hear). Much of the law is fact specific, so the more we know, the better we can advise.
I suppose the question could be reversed – how much does it cost to NOT hire an attorney? Good advice can be priceless – it can help you avoid a lawsuit, negotiate better terms on a business transaction, or win the lawsuit that was filed. Attorneys sometimes work on different billing arrangements depending on the issue – a small firm typically has more flexibility on offering hourly fees, flat fees, contingency arrangements, partial contingency, etc. It’s best to call us and explain your legal matter fully so we can appropriately set expectations and billing arrangements.
The good old fashioned telephone is the best and quickest way to contact us. Someone is always standing by during business hours to take your call and discuss whether we can help.
