Why choose our firm?
There are several reasons why you may consider to retain our services, like:
Smaller firms charge less. This is a fact. At a large firm, there are a high payroll to pay: attorneys, paralegal and clerk officers. Larger firms may have the benefit of additional resources, but are they worth to pay more to solve your specific legal issue? Many big firms also have large overhead costs because of offices located in pricey markets.
As mentioned in the previous section, larger firms are saddled with excessive overhead. That manifests in their hierarchy as well, requiring each case be reviewed by attorneys at multiple levels to ensure consistency within the firm. This overlap is all but eliminated at smaller firms whose greatest concern is getting the client’s matter resolved quickly, efficiently, and most beneficially. Big law firms tend to pressure associates to bill as many hours as possible, thus minimizing their incentive to be efficient.
The relationships developed between a smaller firm and its clients take time and effort to nurture. Though many big firms tout their “team” of lawyers as an advantage, it can also be a disadvantage. The more people there are working on a case the more opportunity there is for misunderstandings and fragmentation between team members. That can lead to errors and additional time to fix them.
