So I’m guessing you’re on this site because you’re shopping for a family law attorney? You did something where the police got involved and they decided to take it to the next level, the district attorney sent you some paperwork and, low and behold, you’re shopping for something (or someone as the case may be) that you never thought you’d be shopping for.
When shopping around, I’m sure this is not the first nor the last website you’re going to check out. Most of the sites are filled with legal gobbly-gook and self-promoting statements on how great the attorney is, how experienced he or she is, how much they know and what a great job they can do for you.. “Attorney XYZ got client off blah, blah, blah charges, has 175 years experience and knows this, that and the other thing.” Well this site has a little of that too, but Google Search apparently likes that and that’s the only reason why we put it on here.
IF TRUTH BE TOLD, most attorneys can do the same thing for you. For example if you broke your arm and went to the ER, most doctors would put a cast on it and say “Call me in a month.” Sure you’ve got your “hacks” that would wrap it up in duct tape and tell you it should be fine. When it turns green next week, they’ll tell you “That’s just normal”. On the other end of the spectrum, other doctors would set your arm in a cast with gold-filigree, convince you that your broken arm needs such care, have 5 or 6 nurses call you on a daily basis and charge you boo-koo- bucks. Attorneys are the same way.
So I’m guessing you’d like to find an attorney who knows what they’re doing, can “get you off” or diminish the damage if that is a possibility, treat you with kindness and respect, answer the phone when you have some questions or need a little “hand holding” (we’ve been doing this for 14 years and I’m guessing you haven’t so a “life -altering four alarm event” for you might be a typical day usual thing” for us) and the big one, COST.
It’s easy for me to sit here and promise you all these things, but we’ve put our firm together in such a way to almost insure this. What do I mean? When shopping around, ask if these points mean anything to you.
We don’t believe in paralegals and staff. Therefore, when you call, email or text message your attorney, you will speak directly to your attorney.
When a motion is filed, your attorney researched and filed it. Your attorney is going to argue it so they should know it inside and out. That’s what you are paying for.
When your ex or soon to be ex does something, your attorney needs to know, not some secretary. The secretary is not going to argue the case in court, the attorney is.
If you have any billing or legal service statement issues, Attorney Mark Mullen, President and founding member of the firm answers the phone….always. He does the books, issues the checks and makes the financial calls on your case. If you call the main number, it will be him you talk to, period.
We encourage payment plans. Most of our clients are not rich and therefore cannot put down the entire amount of the retainer at the time of hiring. WARNING – Every payment plan come with a minatory agreement whereas once your credit card fails from being processed and is denied producing the monthly amount, you stipulate for us to be removed as your attorney of record.
