COMMITMENT TO DELIVERY OF LEGAL SERVICES
We believe that the delivery of sophisticated legal services in a cost
effective manner requires a careful blend and balancing of systems, procedures,
attorney expertise and other resources. Our attorneys represent a diverse
range of expertise, education and background. Two of our attorneys are
also Certified Public Accountants with strong backgrounds in accounting
and financial analysis, thereby complementing our ability to deliver sophisticated
commercial and business legal services.
From its inception, the firm has emphasized the use of available computer
technology to systemize and automate our services. The firm maintains
a vast database of legal forms and research materials that have been developed
over years of practice to enhance the quality, speed and precision of
our work product. Computerized legal research and internet resources have
been extensively incorporated into our daily practice.
To maintain the highest and most efficient standards of professional
service, we draw upon the knowledge and experience of each of our
attorneys to address a client's particular needs. We understand and
appreciate that our clients expect individual and prompt attention from
knowledgeable attorneys. While all of our attorneys serve as resources
for the firm's clients, those attorneys experienced in the applicable
areas of law take primary responsibility for tasks relating to those areas.
Our years of experience managing and coordinating multi-staffed, complex
commercial transactions have given us extensive skills in accomplishing
While a complete working knowledge of applicable legal issues is obviously
of foremost importance in assuring the delivery of quality legal services,
we believe that each client is best served by attorneys who also understand
and appreciate the dynamics of the client's business operations and the
client's particular business philosophy and goals. This enables the attorney
to better assist the client in responding quickly to time-sensitive opportunities
or potential risks from a business as well as a legal perspective.
