General Information

Even after thirty-five years of practice, each client presents a unique set of circumstances, and requires individual attention. There are, however, certain aspects of our services which are common to all clients.

You’ll need to provide us with a detailed factual background before we can give you legal advice.

Our role as your attorney doesn’t begin until there is a clear agreement that you wish us to handle a matter, and we agree to pursue it on your behalf.

Occasionally, we find that a problem or concern is outside of our area of expertise. (For example, we don’t do patent work or deal with issues of maritime law.) If we can’t help you, we’ll have no hesitation in saying so. If you wish, we’ll refer you to an expert in that area of the law.

Once it is agreed that we’ll handle your case, we will provide you, in writing, with an explanation of the scope of our work and the basis for the legal fees which will be charged. We know that legal fees are a matter of importance to our clients, and hope that if you have any questions at all, you will feel comfortable in letting us know.

Everything you tell us will be held in the strictest confidence to the maximum extent allowed by law.

We understand that an important part of our role is to keep you fully informed about the status of your case.

We can’t guarantee any specific result for you, but we do promise to use every appropriate method available for advancing and protecting your legal interests.
