1. Is this law firm sufficiently staffed and equipped to handle legal matters for a large corporation?

Just ask some of our clients like Caterpillar or General Electric. We have the resources, training, and talent to handle cases for organizations of any size.

2. How does this law firm’s fee schedule compare with that of a large law firm?

Lower, lower, lower. Imagine getting the same quality work product (often even better) provided by a large law firm, and better service, for a fraction of the fees. This is the service that we provide.

3. How does this law firm keep its fees lower than large firms and provide equivalent or superior quality and service?

We stay relatively small, represent only select clients, and maintain a close relationship with our clients and a thorough understanding of their business. You do not pay to educate entry-level associates.

4. Does this law firm use modern technology to prepare and conduct its cases?

Yes. We have integrated technology into our legal practice in such a way to streamline our legal practice, as well as, enable us to handle complex cases.

5. How large are the companies that this law firm typically represents?

From small and medium sized firms to large, publicly traded multinational corporations.

6. What kind of cases has this law firm litigated?

Business, commercial, real estate and creditor bankruptcy cases.

7. Why would I choose this law firm over a larger law firm?

Because of the firm’s high quality work product equaling or exceeding that of a larger law firm. At a large law firm, your case will likely be handled by one or two associates. Here, your case will be handled by experienced principal attorneys who are the decision makers at the firm. There is no bureaucracy to penetrate when the need for immediate counsel arises.

8. Does this law firm handle complex litigation cases?

Yes.
The firm associates with specialists if the need arises, but this is rarely required.

9. What geographical regions does this law firm service?

Primarily, the firm handles cases throughout Northern California, but many of our clients retain us for their needs in Central and Southern California as well. We frequently provide Commercial Real Estate attorney services for cases in Oakland, Pleasanton, Castro Valley and throughout the SF Bay Area.
