How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?
I want to help people and families who have been harmed by another person’s wrongful or illegal conduct. It feels good to “protect the little guy” against powerful insurance companies. Every case is so different, and it is truly an honor to represent individuals and families in their darkest hours and to find the right solution for their legal dilemma in order to compensate them for their suffering.
What is your firm’s point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?
I encourage clients to educate themselves as much as possible on their legal issues so that they are well informed. Finding the right solution to a legal dilemma should be a collaborative effort. The more informed the client is, the better he or she will understand the true nature and extent of their legal challenge. I’ve also found that an informed client can be an invaluable asset to successfully litigating a personal injury or wrongful death case. For more information, please visit my website or call (503) 419-6320.
Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?
I am willing to review documents prepared by another, but if the client is going to be represented by a lawyer, it is usually best to have the lawyer prepare them. Please feel free to call (503) 419-6320 to discuss that possibility. It is always a privilege to assist my clients in any way I can. Potentially, the time we take to review any documents will helps us bond and develop a long-term relationship that may lead to a mutually beneficial win-win relationship.
Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?
It is important to ensure that a client’s legal interest is truly protected. While I encourage my clients to educate themselves, I will always counsel with their best interests in mind for the most favorable legal outcome. As an experienced attorney, you would be paying me more by the hour to coach you than if you simply allowed me to negotiate the case for you.
