At LMSPA, we work
hard to provide
individuals and businesses the same level of service that large law
firms provide to their largest clients, but at rates that are
reasonable. We know you want an attorney you can talk to, so personal
service is a hallmark of our practice. What does this mean? It means
that we try to return every client phone call or email promptly,
preferably in the same day we receive it. Of course, this is not always
possible, but we do our best to be responsive to your needs.
initial consultation is free. We
encourage prospective clients to “comparison shop”
in order to obtain second opinions or to compare our fees and services
with those of other attorneys.
LETTER OF ENGAGEMENT
We use a
standard form of engagement
letter. However, each engagement requires a determination of the need
for a retainer, discussion of expected costs and, in some cases,
negotiation of rates. We typically ask for retainers when working with
new clients that were not referred to us from a standard referral
source, in matters where we are acting as local counsel, in litigation
where there will be substantial up-front costs, and in other cases
where we want a commitment from our client as to the matter engaged.
