Within Your Means
We are consistently able to satisfy our clients and have built our success on the strength of our attorneys, coupled with a commitment to solving legal problems in a cost-effective manner. We require our attorneys to be responsive to client needs and to seek cost-effective and prompt resolutions.
We work with our clients to develop a case-specific action plan at the outset of any legal matter, whether it be litigation or business related. We identify objectives, develop a streamlined approach and work toward meeting client goals, understanding that, to be effective, we must be agile, modifying strategy, as necessary, throughout the course of a case or business matter in order to achieve success. We devise individualized litigation and business plans for large and small corporations, hospitals, defendants and private individuals.
Our shared experience tending to cases and causes of all types has taught us that clear client communication is a core component of the legal services we provide. We communicate with our clients regularly and candidly in order to realistically assess the strength and weaknesses of our position, identify risk, develop strategy and assess the cost of our services. The satisfaction of our clients depends, in large part, upon the outcomes we deliver.
Client satisfaction also turns on our ability to communicate with those we serve. We insist that our attorneys and staff tend to client concerns promptly and take and return calls as quickly as possible. Crisp communication with clients is a hallmark of the services we supply. We owe our growth and reputation to satisfied clients in our communities. Our attorneys and staff are a reflection of the communities we serve -- where personalized service leads to success. We owe our size and success to our dedication to direct client contact, our accessibility and our responsiveness.
We take on cases and business matters large and small. We believe in a team approach to client representation one that permits us to apply our knowledge and experience to meet client objectives. Depending on a client's needs, we assemble a team of partners, associates, and / or paralegals to best service the challenges before us. This allows for the most cost-effective service, while insuring the appropriate level of expertise for the task at hand.
Record of Achievement
Our focus has been and will always remain what we can do for you, not what we have done in the past. We are proud of our track record of success and believe that it reflects our commitment to our cases and clients. Our team won't rest until we have responsibly addressed your legal problem. Our attorneys have repeatedly won significant civil verdicts, workers compensation and personal injury awards and criminal acquittals in both state and federal courts in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine. We believe that our legal services will serve your needs. We give you our commitment that we will give you our complete effort to forcefully vindicate your interests.
The interests of our clients are often best served by avoiding legal disputes and business problems. To wait for legal problems to surface and then react to them would be to ignore our responsibility to safeguard the interests of our clients. Our experience has taught us that that businesses and individuals can often can minimize, if not eliminate, various types of liability and attendant costs by timely identifying potential causes of liability and taking reasonable, cost-effective steps to address these issues.
We apply a proactive approach to assisting clients through business formation, establishing employment policies, maintaining corporate compliance, safeguarding business interests, addressing privacy concerns and conducting internal investigations. We do so in a way that seeks to prevent future litigation. When claims do surface, we rely on a range of tools now available in the legal market to address them. We seek to vindicate clients' interests through effective negotiation, alternative dispute resolution and, when necessary, courtroom litigation.
A thorough command of available technology has become increasingly important in all aspects of the legal profession. We use state-of-the-art litigation support systems to promote efficiency and cost savings in legal research, interoffice communication, client communication and trial presentation. Additionally, we have forged business relationships with litigation support vendors who provide services necessary for the management of document-intensive cases on cost-efficient terms, thereby eliminating inflated overhead costs and bureaucratic inefficiency attendant to in-house law firm document management programs.
