Our Staff

Why Support Staff is Important

Our team concept also involves an experienced and well-trained staff. Because our lawyers could be away in trials, pre-trials or investigating a case, it is imperative to have staff in place that are helpful in implementing our game plan, even when the lawyers are not in the office. Our staff has a wide range of experience in helping us defend our clients. For example, one of our staff members worked at a prosecutor’s office for almost 10 years.

In the course of a day our staff may be preparing and issuing  subpoenas, setting up depositions, preparing legal documents,  meeting with witnesses, locating and obtaining important audio or video tapes to help in our client’s defense,  or simply answering client questions about court dates or the need for continuances – just to name a few things. Over the years, our staff has worked with thousands of people who have been charged with crimes. This experience has given them an understanding of what a person accused of a crime is going through and what kind of dedication it takes to provide the best results for our clients. Lawyers should not be spending their time typing out motions, keeping calendars and preparing subpoenas. Rather, lawyers should be spending their time thinking through their cases and staying on the offensive with strategic maneuvering.

In addition to the daily meetings that take place between lawyers and their paralegals, our firm also conducts weekly office meetings (typically on Tuesdays) when the entire team of lawyers and support staff spend the lunch hour eating in, and discussing particular cases, as well as discussing matters which help our office run more efficiently. Additionally, we will often present a client’s defense for a “test run” in front of the entire office to see what type of reaction it receives. This may result in additional brain-storming that then leads to fantastic ideas we may ultimately use. Our staff ranges in age from their early 20's to their early 60's. These are the types of people that will be sitting on a jury. We value their input, as well as their hard work.

When hiring a lawyer, you should ask how many other lawyers will be helping establish the game plan for your case, and how many staff members does the law firm have that will be helping implement that game plan. In other words: Do they have a team?
