NOTICE: I am not taking on new clients or new work for existing clients until about 8/15/14, to give me a chance to catch up on work owed my current clients. If you are interested in legal services, please check back then or find another attorney through the Avvo.com “Find a Lawyer” search function or Google. Thank you. I apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your interest in my services.
I’m an attorney in a solo practice in Glens Falls, New York. My practice is concentrated in family law, real estate, small business issues including business formation, trademarks, environmental law, zoning and planning, and civil and criminal litigation helping individuals and small businesses with their legal issues and questions.
I’ve been in several mid-size law partnerships in the Glens Falls – Saratoga Springs and Albany areas for over 30 years. Based on this experience (and also having been on the “other side of the desk”, hiring lawyers for my own legal matters), I’m committed to the following client‑oriented principles and business practices:
• The client comes first. Unlike most law firm lawyers, I don’t delegate your matter to associates or paralegals and see “rainmaking” and “getting new business in the door” as my primary job. I’m a committed professional and I will provide my professional assistance to you personally.
• My rates are reasonable. I try to use fixed fee, low rates, and agree with my clients on the fees beforehand. I hate “hourly billing” and the unpleasant surprises of legal bills and high fees as much as most clients do.
• You’re paying only for my efforts, results and experience in helping you. As a sole practitioner, you aren’t paying for “overhead” like paralegals, staff, associates, photocopier/phone charges and partner profits. It’s just me and my MacBook Pro and iMac computer network and VOIP phone system, benefitting from the low overhead and inexpensive communications that modern technology provides.
• I’m accessible and responsive. Like most lawyers, I must work on matters for many different clients, however, I pledge and guarantee that I will always return all phone calls and emails you may make inquiring about the status of your matter within one business day.
• I don’t “nickle and dime” my clients with small charges. Your fee covers the reasonable necessities of the work like postage, phone charges, photocopies, car mileage, faxes and the like. I’ve learned that clients don’t have a problem with a fair fee for legal work but they hate law firms that see their copy machines as profit centers. If there are major client charges for court filing fees or transcripts that you’re responsible for paying, I’ll let you know about that beforehand.
