Law Firm’s Philosophy
“I believe that my first duty is to provide information to my clients about the law and, not only, how it applies to their situation but how I believe the court may apply the law to the facts of their case. This information helps my clients make informed choices about proceeding with their cases. I want my clients to have a realistic view of their case and the legal system. For most clients, exposure to the law has been through television, with its over-simplified, over-sensationalized portrayal. Clients are also exposed to law by listening to others talk about their own experiences with the legal system or what others have heard. Neither method usually gives clients a realistic view of what they can expect. It is important to me that my clients receive quality information as soon as possible in order to make informed choices.
I believe in representing my clients to the fullest extent of the law. This does not mean that every case should go to jury trial. Alternate methods of resolution are always explored in every case. Alternate methods could include settlement conferences with the opposing attorney or perhaps mediation with a neutral party. Resolving a case through alternative methods is most often less expensive and less emotionally trying on the client. ” – Joseph Zellmer
