My Approach

Equipped with industry-leading information technology

As an avid reader of law practice management publications, I utilize information technology systems and services that are as good as those used by larger firms, if not better.

For example, I use the secure, cloud-based Clio® law practice management system.  This enables me to use the Clio Connect® feature to share documents, communications, calendar entries, and tasks with clients and co-counsel via a secure and convenient client portal.  This also means that I have secure access to matter files and communications from almost any location.

As another example, I use the power of WestlawNext® for legal research.  I also utilize additional, no-charge research tools such as DRS.

Committed to keeping clients updated and well-informed

Legal disputes are inherently stressful, but they are unnecessarily stressful to an additional degree when attorneys fail to keep their clients promptly and fully informed.  I believe that my clients shouldn’t ever have to wonder about the status of their cases.   To that end, I offer the following to my clients.

Weekly updates:  Each week, at no charge, I will send an e-mail update regarding matter status and any recent or anticipated developments.

Prompt reports:   If I file or serve a document, I will immediately report that action to you and provide copies when available.  I will also promptly report and forward any documents or communications from other parties or the court.

Client portal:   If desired, I can configure the Clio Connect® secure client portal to include a catalog of key case documents and filings.

Designed to respond to unique client needs

Flexible billing arrangements:  If desired, I can bill for services on a weekly, biweekly, or other schedule to suit client needs.  I am also able to discuss alternative fee arrangements for particular matters.

Custom-tailored scope of representation:  Whether you want me to take the lead on your case or provide support to you or your other attorneys, I am able to tailor the scope of my services to match particular client needs.
