As lawyers we are called upon to help our clients in many different ways – whether in the courtroom or the boardroom, we face a wide variety of problems that need to be solved and deals that need to get done.
These stories illustrate the way we approach these varied client matters. Of course, not every case or controversy ends in victory. But as these stories demonstrate, we are always looking for new ways to solve old or seemingly intractable problems. Often it’s not enough to be diligent and resourceful. Lawyers also need to be creative in the way we tackle an assignment.
Some recent matters:
Here’s how we helped a client resolve a problem with the IRS:
“The only thing that saves us from the bureaucracy is inefficiency.”
These are examples of our approach to commercial litigation:
“Never ask a question to which you do not know an answer”
“Litigation is the last resort of the Incompetent.”
“Why two thirds of a loaf is better than none”
“On the value of sweating the small stuff”
Here’s how we helped a woman fight for her inheritance:
“I think you could probate a ham sandwich”
