MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY
"As counsel, you must have a deep understanding of your client’s business, as well as its opportunities, challenges, and core values. To provide excellent client service, you must offer creative and practical solutions, while being mindful that clients are seeking your help and perspective in solving their problems but do not want you to go off and try to solve the problems on your own. Finally, excellent client service requires a keen understanding of all of the ways that improve your client’s experience and reduce avoidable stress such as being highly responsive, delivering well before deadlines, and providing timely and accurate budgets and bills."
