About the Law Firm:
The firm recognizes that in many instances, there is not a need for full legal representation—many business people rely on their own experience and do some of the work themselves. For that reason, we offer Service Packages, from which clients can fit their own needs. The Service Packages are intended to fit a business person’s particular budget and the transaction. We are dedicated to the following:
- We believe that our experience of more than 30 years of experience practicing in legal matters informs our judgment and enables us to do the right thing for our clients.
- We are here to meet the needs of our clients, and we seek to deliver effective legal services on a timely basis at a premium controlled cost.
- We believe that for most business issues, including purchasing or forming a business, financing, governance, contracts and leases, intellectual property, employment issues, and succession/transition planning, an experienced solo business attorney with big law experience can meet your legal needs.
- We believe that it is important for clients to believe that they can retain our firm, and yet also retain the services of other non-affiliated lawyers with whom we work regularly.
