You make the calls about your goals and objectives. I get you there, and I controls the means by which you get to your desired outcome. Ethical Rule 1.2(a)
spells out the details.
We communicate. You provide information. Together, we discuss objectives and goals. I advise and act.
Nothing is certain, ever, especially in many law-related settings. By keeping you informed and knowledgeable about your matter, surprises are less likely.
If I get news about your case, you receive it right away, even when it’s bad news… except for Friday afternoons. No bad news to start a weekend unless it really can’t wait!
Legal services cost money. No one enjoys paying attorneys. That said, dealing with problems up front almost always saves you money.
I work for a living. I expect payment for services rendered. Enough said. But ask about light switches if you think I’m too direct.
I work in a service profession. Expect good service from me. If you’re not getting what you expect, I expect to hear from you.
