What Makes

Us Different?

Modern & Efficient

Lawyers have a reputation for adapting to change slowly or not at all. We embrace change whenever it allows us to serve our clients more efficiently. Examples include:

  • We are paperless: All documents are scanned and securely stored electronically, so they are always at our and your fingertips. Our clients review and electronically sign documents from the convenience of your home instead of sending hard copies back and forth.
  • We offer convenient electronic payment options: While we accept old-fashioned payment methods such as paper checks and cash, we offer convenient electronic payment processing. We send our bills via email and you can easily and securely pay them online.

Personal and Honest Service

  • Legal services are personal services and every relationship matters. Unlike larger firms, you won’t be dealing with numerous associates and paying for them to stay apprised of your case. We will keep you informed of the risks, benefits, and costs at each step so that you can make informed decisions.

Honest, Straightforward Billing

  • We’re not in the business of sales – we are in the business of your solving problems as cost-effectively as possible. We make sure our clients fully understand all financial issues from the outset. Our bills are straight forward and include a detailed description of the work we performed.
