Our Process

Retaining us

While we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Conflicts of interest occur when there are or may be compromising influences and loyalties. This Firm goes to considerable lengths to identify possible conflicts of interest and to avoid them. Therefore, we do not agree to represent new clients based solely on Internet contact. Information obtained for screening is not confidential. Likewise any information you send via this website is not confidential. If you would like to have us contact you about possible representation, please complete the following:

  • A list with contact information of potential witnesses, if any
  • If there has been previous litigation, bring all the court papers
  • Prepare a chronology of significant events, identifying milestones
  • In divorce cases, bring a list of all known assets and debts of the parties and the last five (5) years of tax returns
