Philosophy & Practice Areas

People come to attorneys for advice and assistance on complex issues. Prospective clients want and need an attorney who listens, understands and solves their problem. In today’s economy, clients are also searching for the best value. With the ease in which consumers can compare restaurants  cars, or laptops, prospective legal clients should demand more information up front before making a decision on an attorney. Unfortunately, the legal profession has historically been slow to adopt change. Neutral ratings services have stepped in to fill the void.
