I am a San Diego attorney and principal of REED SMITH / LAW OFFICES. Over the past 28 years I have counseled with hundreds of business owners and officers in both pursuing business claims, defending against a variety of business related lawsuits, and addressing employee issues and other business concerns. Specifically, my law practice includes: Employment Law, Contract Disputes, Construction Law, and Real Estate Law.
With the high cost of litigation, and legal services generally, I am highly sensitive to the financial hardship that is sometimes imposed on a business by the need for legal services. However, I am also very aware from personal experience that ignoring or putting off needed legal services can often result in even more expense, and sometimes the complete destruction of a small company. Thus, securing highly competent legal services at a reasonable and competitive rate is extremely important to a small business.
In order to meet the needs of my clients, I maintain a reasonable and highly competitive hourly rate or fee for a broad range of legal services, including litigation and general consultation. I am also committed to a policy of strict accountability for all costs and fees, as evidenced by detailed billing statements. Finally, I have learned over the years that effective attorney-client communication is essential to achieving the client's goals. As such, all client phone calls are returned promptly and always within 24 hours. In addition, I respond to routine email inquiries promptly and without charge. I invite you to consider this website and call me if you would like to discuss your legal problems, concerns, or needs. THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THE INITIAL CONSULTATION.
