What We Believe

Experienced Big Law Firm Services at Reasonable Rates

“If in your own judgment you cannot be an honest lawyer,” Abraham Lincoln wrote, “resolve to be honest without being a lawyer. Choose some other occupation, rather than one in the choosing of which you do, in advance, consent to be a knave.”

Overview and Philosophy

Steve has set forth How This Firm Is Different and the Vision of this law firm.   We define success the same way our clients define it, and that is by measuring Steve’s services in terms of how effective they are to resolving a critical legal issue.  Clients are demanding lawyers who are committed to leveraging deep business and legal experience to build and sustain value to their enterprises and their personal planning goals.

What We Believe:

  • We believe that our experience of more than 25 years of experience practicing in business 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 delivering effective legal services on a timely basis at a premium controlled cost.  We price our services based upon the value of our knowledge and experience delivered to the client, as reflected in our advice, counsel and documents.
  • We do not compete with the companies selling online corporate forms.  When we are asked about such services as LegalZoom, we respond that if you are the type of person who fixes your own car, rather than have it fixed by experts, if you find a doctor’s prescription pad on the ground and decide you can write your own prescription, then LegalZoom may be the service for you.  As such, we are not the firm for everyone.
  •  We believe that it is important to return phone calls and emails promptly and pay attention to our client’s needs.
  • We believe that there is no reason for us to produce the lengthiest documents and run up costs for our clients.  It is important to be cost-conscious and streamline documents; it is easier to write long than it is to write short.
  • 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.  We have long-standing relationships with independent lawyers who specialize in commercial litigation, immigration, land use and zoning, negligence, criminal defense, and tax law.
