Dedicated to Efficient, Effective Resolution of Cases.
The Bolin Firm’s primary objective is to help you resolve your legal dispute quickly and effectively. The firm, through Attorney Bolin accomplishes this through this counseling-at-law virtual practice. The firm also assists other lawyers in the handling of their clients’ civil cases. The service is provided to individuals, particularly high net worth individuals, business and legal professionals who have a need to consult with a lawyer without the necessity of establishing a long term relationship. You can book an hour, block of hours or ask for a monthly service fee. The goal is to get you the right legal advice, help and consultation in order to steer you in the right direction, to save you time and money. You can do all this before you choose to go into full scale litigation or conflict. If full scale conflict or litigation is your primary objection, and not the wise, expeditious and calm resolution of your matter, then, The Bolin Firm is not for you.
For lawyers and other legal professionals, this service has proven invaluable in the handling of their difficult cases and particularly for those lawyers who have problems trying cases by themselves. Most lawyers that use this service just want to discretely get a second opinion on some of the matters they are handling, without having to add staff to their payroll.
The firm is the brain child of attorney Ngozi E. Bolin, Esq. who though born into nobility, spent her formative years in war-torn Biafra. Due to her very trying childhood experiences of war, hunger and other atrocities of war, Ms. Bolin developed a very keen sense of justice. The Bolin Firm is dedicated to promoting greater access to justice and understanding of applicable laws through an unbundled practice of law. This means that Ms. Bolin only provides counseling to her clients, be they families; individuals; other attorneys; or businesses, with a view to a better understanding of the law and quicker resolution of actual or contemplated disputes.
Just a bit about Ngozi Bolin, Esq.: She has tried multiple cases to verdict successfully in both New York and California. She has represented people from all works of life, families, businesses and high net worth individuals and recovered multi-million awards and settlements as part of the Cremin, et al v. Merrill Lynch Pierce, et al. class action lawsuit, and other cases. Some of her reported cases include: Louis Capital Markets, LP v. Refco Group Ltd., LLC, et al., 9 Misc.3d 283, 801 N.Y.S.2d 490 (N.Y.Co. 2005)(Corporate espionage, unfair business practices, and employees’ fiduciary duties to employer); Giordano v. Thomson, et al., 438 F. Supp.2d 35 (E.D.N.Y. 2005); 2005 WL 4147932; 2006 WL 1882917; Davis v. Commercial Bank of New York, 275 F. Supp.2d 418 (S.D.N.Y. 2003) (Unwritten ERISA Plans and unjust enrichment). She has successfully tried medical malpractice cases, real estate cases, personal injury cases, contract cases, business disputes and other various matters to verdict, much to the delight of her clients.
Having successfully practiced law for three decades and being admitted to practice law in multiple continents, Ms. Bolin, now undertakes telephonic legal counseling only, in New York and California. So book your hour and bring your questions.
The objective is to help the prospective clients and clients understand their legal rights and responsibilities and help them resolve their legal disputes prior to being involved in an ill-advised and expensive lawsuit either as defendants or plaintiffs.
Ms. Bolin understood the need for this unbundled service after being approached so many times by individuals, families, and businesses that only wanted answers to legal questions, wanted time with the attorney to discuss all of those questions, without worrying about retaining the lawyer then or down the road. They simply wanted to understand what they were facing legally. Ms. Bolin provides this service at a discounted rate and not her usual $1,190 per hour.
The goal is to facilitate a better, quicker, more amicable and satisfying resolution of matters, before litigation; and if litigation becomes necessary, to give a clear understanding of what to expect including costs, time involved, issues involved and settlement options. In short, take advantage of Ms. Bolin’s wealth of experience at a deeply discounted rate and find out what your rights are, first.
