Nine Reasons to Consider McCue Pauley and Associates, P.C.
1. We do our homework.
We learn about your industry and your company, and listen to your business objectives before we attempt to craft a legal strategy to accomplish those objectives. Our job is to say "Yes" whenever possible and to find a cost-effective and timely way to get the job done.
2. We communicate regularly.
Through periodic reporting, either by telephone, facsimile, or electronic mail, we keep you informed of significant developments.
3. We work closely with you.
We welcome and encourage suggestions, comments and advice from you or your management team. Our goal as business lawyers is to accomplish your business objectives as quickly and inexpensively as may be practicable.
4. We work effectively.
The legal team assigned to your project, and your contact within the Firm, remain the same throughout. This approach provides consistency and uniformity, and reduces the need for duplication of work effort. Additionally, we have a strong internal staff that includes a dedicated team of attorneys, paralegals, and administrative personnel.
5. We utilize technology and effective legal tools.
Our offices are equipped with the latest technology, including Internet access, voice recognition software, video-conferencing, litigation support software, and computerized legal research. In preparation for litigation, we utilize jury focus groups, and where appropriate, mock juries for case evaluation and pretrial preparation. Other non-judicial dispute resolution techniques are suggested when such an approach is viable.
6. We respect your time and budgetary considerations.
Before we begin, we define the assignment and attempt to estimate a timeline and budget. Then, we strive to work creatively within the scope of the assignment, time schedule and budget. We routinely bill monthly, and provide a complete breakdown of all professional services and expenses. We provide retention letters in all cases and, although we often do require advanced retainers, especially in complex matters, we do not "markup" expenses. Any questions regarding professional services or expenses are promptly addressed.
7. We are aggressive and zealous advocates.
When litigation is required to address business problems, we are aggressive and zealous advocates. However, our advocacy is tempered by your business goals, objectives, and budgetary constraints. Negotiation, mediation, and other non-judicial resolution of business disputes are carefully discussed and implemented when appropriate.
8. We respect and revere the legal system.
We respect and revere the legal system and the constitutional form of government which we have sworn to uphold. The Firm practices law in accordance with the cornerstones of the legal profession: honesty, trust, integrity, fairness and justice. We represent clients who share a similar commitment to these principles.
9. We care about our clients, employees and our families.
We take great pride in our work, our children's schools, the religious institutions we attend, and the communities in which we live.
