This web site is designed to empower clients throughout the course of their relationship with an attorney. Empowerment begins with you selecting the right attorney. It continues with you controlling and giving direction to your attorney. You may also want to know what to do when you believe something has gone wrong; how to evaluate the mistakes and damages caused by your lawyer. You may even be required to prosecute a claim against your attorney. Your knowledge and personal strength is probably the only remedy available should your attorney misunderstand his or her responsibilities or make a mistake.
Many of our clients have asked us to tell the story of their journey through the judicial system. They want other people in trouble with their lawyer to know what to do. And what not to do. Some of the decided cases changing their lives are reprinted here. Some of our clients have told their story for you to read.
