I have always served the middle class, the working class. My father was a hard working middle class Immigrant and I know what it feels to be a struggling family. Yet so many attorney friends tell me that if I don't charge big bucks, that clients will not respect me. For 19 years I believed that it's better to get the job done than to look like a big shot. Isn't the "ivory towered, marble floored lawfirm days" a little antiquated? Clients just want to get their cases done fast, accurately and professionally. They don't care if you don't have a cappacino machine in the waiting room. So I believe in being a hard working lawyer instead of a high priced lawyer. Many clients agree with me and I hope that new clients understand this logic.
You don't need a high priced attorney, just a hard working honest one. And remember, a low fee attorney is not a low quality attorney!
