I enjoy helping clients find resolutions to their legal challenges. The initial interview is very important for me to learn the facts and from those to analyze and to  explain legal, and equitable relief that may be available.  This usually reduces the  client's anxiety that frequently a result of fear of the unkown.  It is my goal to learn enough to determine the client's options, potential resolutions, and estimate expense that may be expected. With fear overcome many clients become eager to assist in their matter resulting in a greater prospect to provide a result that is satisfying for the client.

Trials, when necessary or desirable, are the most enjoyable aspect of practice in cases that for whatever reason cannot be settled.  What is even more enjoyable is getting a problem resolved as early as possible by way of a settlement the client likes.

The most satisfying aspect of law practice is earning the appreciation of a client for a job well done.

I have been in litigation and trial practice in Missouri for 34 years.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

 I'll ask for basic information,your name, email, phone and the nature of the situation causing you to seek legal help.  and ask for additional information helpful to determining whether I am willing to assist and your options. If the problem is not one I am willing to take on there will be no charge.

We will next discuss fees and if agreeable you will be provided an agreement  to sign and return.   Some types of work are charged based upon time, others may be on a percentage or a flat fee basis. Some matters require payment of an engagement fee or fee deposit to cover the charges for the  work. 

If you want the problem analyzed immediately payment for the time to be devoted to your matter must be on deposit before proceeding further. it will be necessary to make payment  via PayPal or in person prior to the expenditure of further time specially for you.
