As our Client:

  • You have access to us—by phone, text message, secure/encrypted channels when necessary (we recommend Signal), and, of course, in person in our Clayton office.
  • You have transparency in billing. Our approach to legal fees is modern and, dare we say it, fair. We offer flat-fee billing so you know what your case is going to cost.  And when we bill for our time, we are fair and transparent.
  • You’ll receive regular, detailed case updates. After all, we’re working hard on your case behind the scenes—and it’s important that you stay up-to-date on what is happening.
  • You have the top resources available. We invest in top-notch legal research tools and utilize them at no additional cost to you. We speak at, and attend, legal seminars throughout the country. And we are members of national, state, and local bar associations to collaborate with our peers throughout the world.
  • You have our sincere promise that we will do everything we possibly can to obtain the best possible result.
