We emphasize a team approach, where we work with you as well as for you.nWhen we think team, we aren’t just referring to our legal team, but you. That’s because you are an important part of the team. While we are handling the legal aspects of your case, this is your life, and no one knows you and your case like you do. Your input will always be valued.nnWe will listen to you to understand your goals.nYou have a reason you want to see an attorney, and we want to listen to what you want to accomplish to counsel you on the best way to get there.nnWe will help you feel safe and protected while guiding you through your case.nLitigation can be scary, and having someone in your corner is a big deal. Sometimes getting to use the magic phrase “call my attorney” can be very helpful when dealing with the other side in stressful situations you would rather not handle yourself.nnWe are fanatics about returning phone calls and emails (relatively) quickly.nUnfortunately, the complaint logs of all lawyer regulatory groups indicate that many lawyers are terrible communicators with their clients. If, every time you have a problem, there’s a delay of several days before you hear from your lawyer, you’ll lose precious time, not to mention sleep.nnNothing is more aggravating than retaining an attorney and then have time go by where it feels like nothing is happening. We know that while attorneys like to admire all the papers and documents we are creating, you want to have answers to your questions. We know how important it is for you to hear back from us. Our goal is to return all phone calls or respond to an email within one business day. We also include you in all emails so you are in the loop on what is happening with your case.nnWe have decades of experience.nJon & Mark have over 40 years combined experience as attorneys, and we use that to your advantage. We regularly discuss our cases with each other to discuss issues and learn from our collective experience.nnWe are very practical, looking for practical real world rather than theoretical solutions.nWe don’t think that the solution to every problem is to litigate. We take our roles as attorney AND counselor serious. You are best served when we advise you of all your options, helping you decide when and where to put your legal fees to their best use. Sometimes that means we will counsel you which battles to fight, and which ones are not in your best interest to pursue.nnWe won’t make you feel short.nIf you want to feel good about yourself, we know that being taller than your attorney often helps.
