New Hampshire Lawyers
At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. we provide high quality, comprehensive and effective legal assistance to our clients in the most efficient manner possible. We pride ourselves on being a full service Northern New England law firm. This means that we seek to represent individuals and institutions in a wide variety of practices areas. We tailor a fee structure to reflect the issues implicated by the representation before us and not to keep pace with the billable rates of our competitors. We communicate clearly with our clients regarding their budget and set realistic goals within those means to account for anticipated legal fees and costs. While the cost of our representation relates to the size and scope of a project, our effort is something that remains the same. We work in every case to supply personalized client attention, clear communication, a team approach, proactive strategies and the best technology in a cost-effective way.
Working Closely With Clients
Knowing our clients and understanding their goals is critical to securing successful outcomes. It is simply not enough to have a command of a practice area. Effective lawyers take the time to know their client, understand their objectives and establish a strategy to work toward those goals. In small engagements and large ones, we start by meeting with our client in order to learn about their background and plans for the future as well as the legal issues that they now face. Assessing client concerns allows our team of legal professionals to develop result-oriented strategies where each step in the legal process is meaningfully made, accounting for a client's ultimate objectives. Taking the time to know our clients actually improves our efficiency as lawyers.
By clearly communicating case expectations, we can streamline our representation and avoid time spent on issues that are not aimed at directly advancing client interest. Knowing our clients also improves our ability to work alongside our clients toward a positive outcome. Trusted legal advisors must account for both the strength and weaknesses of a case and realistically address a range of potential outcomes in client discussions. The better our relationship with our clients, the more effective we will be supplying advice. This is precisely why our approach is one where it is immediately important to build a positive working relationship with our clients such that we are in the best possible position to supply timely client advice when it becomes critical to do so.
Resources and Solutions
We have been representing clients in a wide range of practice areas for years, becoming knowledgeable in our field and familiar with the communities we serve. Our repeat success permits us to be more effective and efficient moving forward. Our relationships in the legal community and with industry experts along with the institutional experience of a firm nearly 40 years old and with over 35 lawyers means that we provide our clients with the streamlined legal assistance that can significantly reduce time and costs. Though every client and every issue is unique, there are few subjects in our practice areas that we have not seen before. As such, the benefit of our own institutional experience allows us to eliminate a number of overhead costs and bureaucratic inefficiencies that characterize the frustration so many feel when dealing with lawyers. We also rely on technology to permit us to move faster whether conducting legal research, communicating inside or outside of the office or preparing a presentation for a courtroom or business meeting.
While our goal is to solve legal problems using proactive and cost-effective solutions, we also understand that certain cases may benefit from our ability to utilize our firm's extensive resources. For example, if our legal team determines that the strength of a client's case and ultimate resolution can be increased by infusing our resources into thorough investigations and trial proceedings, we have the ability to pursue such valuable options. This is especially true in personal injury law, where our firm can level the playing field between clients and large companies in order to obtain the maximum compensation possible.
