First, we set contact with you by phone or in person
In our first contact we try to understand the problem, identify the work involved and determine if we can take case and we discuss the fees.
Our fee policies
Fees are variable but we strive to work within your needs and the parameters of the case and we identify contingencies upfront which can impact fees.
Whenever possible we arrange fee installments for big cases.
You Hire Us
If we decide to work together, we would arrange a second meeting where the main strategy is discussed and the fee is fixed for specific work to be done. We further communicate with you via phone/skype and email (we are flexible to your needs). There is some initial financial and administrative paperwork to take care of at this time.
We Listen to You and Get Informed
This case is about YOU. We start with you. We want to know what’s important to you, what’s at stake, what your goals are and what information, documentation or other means you can provide to us for us to help you.
We listen to your circumstances.
We Identify Your Goals – We Explain Your Possibilities
We listen to you and we also give you information. A legal problem is one of life’s worst problems. Not knowing what could happen to you gives rise to all kinds of fears, many of which aren’t going to happen. We help you to understand the realistic scope of the problem (best case and worst case) you’re facing. We identify the best case scenario and how we will work to get there.
We Take Over and Actively Represent You
After we’re involved, we actively handle the communications needed and insulate you from those stresses. After we take over, the problem is no longer just happening to you, there’s protection and push back in place.
We notify all interested parties that we are your counsel and all communication and information should come to us.
If there is a need for you to speak, we discuss when and how that should occur.
We interface with all the key players.
We prepare you for key meetings and all meetings.
We prepare you to avoid common pitfalls and mistakes.
We identify the information we need and we get it.
We minimize court time – ideally, you walk in and you walk out without saying a word.
We assert your rights.
We Handle Urgent Needs
We handle urgent needs and work to undo what we can undo now. Is there any kind of imminent pressure to you? We handle that. If we can’t immediately undo some of the urgent needs, we try to mitigate them now and work to fix them in time. Our goal is always to fix the problem.
We Use the Rules and Get our and “their” Information
We need to know what we’re aiming for or fighting against. We work on having the whole picture of your case, we collect all data needed and we research what your opposition or competition might have in hand. We try to minimize hypothesis and have secure knowledge of your position. This way our chances to be successful are maximized. We want you to feel as secure and protected as possible.
We take Action for your Goals or Implement Your Defense
We evaluate the information in hand, track down and interview witnesses or gather information from sources, involve experts, draft statements, tell you what you can do, and we analyze the law. Decide and Act. The goal is to find a strategy that will work most effectively to get the best outcome. If we can develop information that causes your accuser to reconsider their position and back off, we do that. If we can’t get voluntary reconsideration, we move in the direction of a contested hearing or trial and focus our energies on winning. Sometimes we work parallel approaches. We think outside of the box. You are unique, your case is unique and we won’t limit ourselves in your defense.
We Bring an End to Your Problem
Through trial, contested hearings or negotiation, we end your legal problem with your interests protected. We want your good name protected your education, job, property and career safe, your family reunited, your liberty intact and life as you knew it restored to you.
