Al's Legal Corner - Did You Know?


Question: If I hire Attorney Sauline, will he be the attorney who actually works on my case?

Answer: YES! If you hire me, you get me. Too often I hear people complain about hiring an attorney, only to see their case get handed off to a lower level associate. This happens in law firms where multiple attorneys are present.

The attorney-client relationship is vital to the success of a case. It is also a common courtesy to provide the attorney whom the client retained. At my law office, I am the only attorney, so what you see is what you get.

Too often I hear people complain about a paralegal doing all of the work on a case, or the inability to speak with the attorney because the paralegal screens the calls. Although I have a certified paralegal on staff, I personally return all phone calls before the end of the day. Your return phone call may occur after hours, possibly 7 pm or later if my schedule requires such, but you will receive a return call from me. It is your choice whether answer that late.
