WHY CHOOSE US
When you are involved in a difficult situation, we know you have important choices to make. You can count on our Firm to provide you with the support and honest advice you ask for and need.
All lawyers are not equal and they do not offer the same services. For that reason, we invite you to get to know about us and make that your first consideration when deciding who to hire.
Contracting with an attorney based solely on the fees charged and not on the quality and extent of service is a common mistake that often yields unsatisfactory results. Even so, our fees are among the most reasonable and accessible in the areas handled by our Firm, and our service is without equal. Let us show you how we can put our people and resources to work for you.
Clients Come First.
Our law firm is based on the belief that our clients' needs are of the utmost importance.
Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from client referrals. Professionalism, respect, and organization are our hallmarks. Many of our clients have written to us after our representation of their interests has ended thanking us for the experience and thoroughness we provide.
We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver to you and your family and friends the best service in the business. You can count on us to do what we say.
Extended Office Hours.
We know that many of our clients cannot take time off from work or their busy lives to come into our offices during the middle of the day. The Firm thus regularly offers open office hours from 7:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Our extended work schedule goes above and beyond the usual practices of other law firms and ensures that you can meet with or call us at a time that works better with your lifestyle. PLEASE NOTE: FOR THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF OUR CLIENTS AND STAFF, OFFICE HOURS HAVE BEEN REDUCED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE TO 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY. TELEPHONIC MESSAGES MAY BE LEFT AFTER-HOURS AND WILL BE RESPONDED TO THE FOLLOWING MORNING.
24-Hour Emergency Access.
Our availability does not end when we turn the lights off at the office. You can call us at any time of the day or night and speak to a live person if you have an emergency that cannot wait until the following day, have been in an accident, or if you or your loved one is detained.
Specific Areas of Practice.
We provide representation in the areas of immigration, personal injury, civil litigation, criminal defense, and divorce cases. The members of our Firm would be pleased to speak with you about your matters in those areas.
No-Cost Initial Consultations in Spanish or English.
We offer initial consultations at no cost to you in immigration and certain personal injury matters. All attorneys and staff members at the firm are native Spanish speakers and are fully bilingual and bicultural.
Minimal-Cost Representation in Some Cases.
Most clients of our firm with qualified cases in the areas of personal injury and civil litigation can have their cases handled on a contingency basis. This means that your out of pocket costs will be limited and you will only pay attorney fees if you recover damages in your case. With our firm, compensation for your damages caused by another party is within your reach.
Accessible Fees and Forms of Payment.
Unlike some other law firms, we do not require full fee payment up front. We ensure that our fees will be something that our clients can afford to pay by offering reasonable fee payment plans that do not require large initial deposits. Our Firm works for you by making available several different creative financing plans that take into consideration your specific financial circumstances and needs. For your convenience and consistent with our goal of being among the most service-oriented law firms, we also offer many different forms of electronic payment that do not require you to take important time out of your day to come to our office. It is very likely that at least one of our solutions will work for you.

A Team for You.
We are not a solo practice.

Someone is always available during office hours with knowledge of your matter to discuss your case or answer your questions.
