I understand the importance of communication and transparency between attorney and client. Although I would like to talk to you weekly by telephone, that would be neither practical nor productive. Legal matters have a way of stretching out over long periods of time. To you, it may often seem like ages have gone by without activity, however, in fact, much behind-the-scenes work is being completed so that on the day your matter is ready, nothing will be overlooked. In order to keep the cost of legal services down while maximizing communications, I will strive to keep you informed when anything important happens and to respond to your questions in a reasonable time. In addition, I will inform you when your presence is required, either in my office or in court.
