Our Client Service Director is just that person. From your initial consultation to the closing of your case (and often long after) Doreen will be by your side.

In that email, she will let you know your scheduled day and provide you with the opportunity to ask questions, or schedule time to discuss your concerns with your attorney or paralegal. We have found this system works well to ensure that every client receives the best service possible.
