Personalized, prompt attention is given to every matter. Today, we can look with pride at a roster of clients, which range from individuals and privately-owned businesses to major real estate companies and multi-state corporations. Other lawyers and law firms often pay us the ultimate compliment of retaining our services for their clients. We do not accept a matter unless we are certain we can service efficiently and effectively. Every client is important to our firm and is treated accordingly. We do not believe that every matter requires a large firm, cadres of lawyers or bureaucracy. Rather, ability, experience, service and direct accountability are the components of effective legal representation. We look forward to the opportunity to prove to you that these are not mere words; that both you and we will derive mutual satisfaction from the services we render for you.
