Our Process

Once your case is referred to an attorney, the manager of our firm is your point of contact with the lawyer referred to you. The manager works with the referred attorney to make sure that you receive timely updates about your case. The manager also makes sure that you are doing your part, for example, by regularly seeing your physician and helping to ensure that your doctor documents your condition in the medical reports.
Also, the manager assists you with preserving any relevant evidence. The manager points out weaknesses in your case to help you correct anything that can be corrected or at the very least give you a realistic expectation about your case, so that surprise outcomes are eliminated or at least minimized.  Those who perform work for our firm view Traci Richards as an excellent role model and an asset to the firm. She has experience and expertise,  working successfully with many types of people and helping them achieve successful outcomes.


Consultation & Mediation

Not of all of our legal representation results in litigation. We have advised churches and other nonprofits on real estate acquisitions, refinancing and breach of contract disputes.


This firm works closely with other lawyers to achieve great results for our clients. We are not limited to working with only a set group of lawyers. Instead, we select lawyers from other firms; if that would help our clients and our clients never pay more because of it.
