Client First Philosophy

Our small size and “client first” philosophy allows us to partner effectively with our clients and referring lawyers. We are dedicated to finding a solution tailored to the needs and budget of the client. Perhaps most importantly, we have the flexibility to find the fee structure appropriate to your case, whether it be hourly rates, flat fees, or sharing in the risks and rewards of the case.
