We recognize that we must be good stewards of the resources and budgets that clients set for their legal needs.  We are dedicated to a process of legal practice management, where our primary focuses are:

  • Communication, including scoping the specifics of legal work within your budget
  • Efficiency
  • Predictability of Cost

We aim to work within a client’s budget and add legal value to each client enterprise by leveraging our deep industry knowledge and experience to create customized form contracts for each client’s repetitive needs, to train client personnel to negotiate within the contract framework, and to create internal processes that reduce the amount of attorney time necessary to support a client’s business.   We are a paperless office and, as part of any engagement, maintain an electronic record of each client’s legal files.
