We are a non-traditional law firm dedicated to providing legal guidance with compassion and understanding. Many of our clients are vulnerable, in nursing homes, elderly, special needs, or grieving a loss. We handle these clients very gently, and have worked with the government systems enough to know what to expect and how to prepare our clients.
However, we also engage in estate planning for the average folk. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to be rich in order to need estate planning. Estate planning is a fancy term for protecting your heirs from having to go through the probate process. Anyone who owns real estate needs this, whether it is paid for or not.
Our first Values Statement is People are more important than money. Do we have to charge for legal work? Yes, I have to pay salaries and keep the lights on. Are our fees reasonable? I claim they are. Additionally, if you are a married Medicaid client with limited resources, we offer a sliding fee scale.
Our clients hug us. We like that. Did I mention we are a non-traditional law firm?
