Some clients hire an attorney to work for them. When you hire Wolf & Shore, LLC you hire attorneys to work with you. Our office looks at representation as a “two-way street.”
We send every client a questionnaire as part of our engagement process. These questionnaires are documents that we have personally created over the years, based on our experience with so many types of cases. These documents help us by providing with us the majority of the information we need to work on your file. We ask for basic information to file pleadings, but we also ask more personal questions so that we can thoroughly advocate on your behalf and make sure that we truly know the history of your matter, and your concerns. We have found that this process eliminates hassle, extra phone calls, duplicative e-mails, etc. Many clients have told us that this makes the process go smoothly and we think that is one of the most important aspects of representation.
Once we draft your pleadings, we always send them to you for approval. You will never be blindsided by anything we file. We take the time to answer any questions, and address any concerns that you may have. Some offices file paperwork and discuss it with you later, but we will always consult with you first. Wolf & Shore believes that it is important that you have a say in how your matter is handled.
Our firm makes recommendations to you, and offers you legal advice throughout your matter, but decisions are ultimately yours. We rely on your opinion and work on your timeline.
While Wolf & Shore, LLC works with you, we also need you to work with us. Providing us with documentation in a timely manner is key. There are often deadlines or due dates that come along with family law matters, and our office cannot gather your personal information for you.
When we refer you to professionals such as counselors, accountants, financial advisors, and appraisers, we will need you to give us signed releases to speak with them about the details of your case. Without the proper releases from you, we won’t be able to discuss important topics with them, and that can hinder progress. It is often prudent to consult with experts such as accountants, financial experts to value a business, etc., so that we can help you to make informed decisions in your matter.
