How do you distinguish yourself from the competition?
“We are a small firm that provides a range of practice specialties that small business owners and professionals need, including corporate and LLC structures, employment advice, trademarks and commercial leasing. Our clients appreciate that we are a local firm with the track record and practice experience necessary to support their growing businesses and professional practices while also providing the personal feel and attention of a small firm.”
How do you determine what your clients want?
“In every case—no matter the problem—we always ask our clients what they want to happen and when. We then map out a step-by-step strategy to get them to their desired outcome. As each step of the plan is completed, we circle back to the original plan to confirm that we are on track and that we have accomplished the tasks in a timely, efficient matter. Each of the attorneys in our firm is approachable, and our clients feel comfortable in communicating their desired results and their concerns along the way. Our clients find that we are a valued resource to them—not only with our legal advice but also with our deep-rooted connection to our community and other trusted advisors and professionals.”
How can clients protect themselves and their families?
“It is so important to reach out to an attorney for legal advice as soon as possible upon discovering a new problem or opportunity. We tell our clients to ALWAYS call us first. They usually find that we can save them time and money. Most of all, we provide our clients with peace of mind in knowing that we are looking out for them and their families.”
To what do you attribute your expertise in this industry?
“I am proud to say that I have appeared in defense of individuals and businesses in virtually every courthouse in Southern California. I spent the first 10 years of my career defending businesses that were being sued on many different theories. Then I transitioned my law practice to work with business owners and professionals on their legal structures in order to avoid many of the problems I saw in court. I have a unique perspective and expertise that benefits clients who are concerned with protecting their families from the risks involved in operating a business or professional practice.”
What’s most rewarding about your work?
“I am always honored when my clients refer me to their friends and family members. This demonstrates the utmost trust and confidence in me and my team. I am also honored to work with a fantastic team of experienced attorneys and motivated, enthusiastic staff who all have the common goal of helping our clients succeed.”
Who are your clients?
“We work with family-owned businesses to develop legal structures that facilitate manageable day-to-day operations and implement succession strategies that allow the business to continue to thrive and grow as it passes from one generation to the next. We work with professionals to provide a range of legal services that serve their needs. In some instances, we also work with new business owners considering the purchase of an existing business or franchise. Our clients desire to do things the right way legally to ensure that their families and personal assets are adequately protected.”
What are the most common problems that you run across when working with clients?
“Today it is increasingly challenging to run a business in California, with the ever-changing landscape of regulations that impact the day-to-day operations of a business. We have recently seen an increase in the number of business clients that are not keeping up with employment laws that affect their businesses. We help California employers work with their employees in a cooperative environment while protecting their business from employment-related claims and lawsuits.”
How do clients benefit from working with your team?
“Our team approach means we evaluate a client’s business structures and enlist the best attorneys on our team to provide the client with specialized legal counsel in the areas where it is needed the most. Our experienced attorneys solve our clients’ problems in a prompt and cost-effective manner. This is why our firm has become known as the Legal Team Local Business Owners Trust Most.”
