Our values guide everything we do.
Wondering what it’s like to work with a Fresh Legal lawyer? Our values are the place to start. If our values line up with how you want to handle your legal issue, give us a call today.
The right system and solution for your problem.
You have a lot of options for resolving your legal issues. We help you pick the right solution for you. Sometimes that means going to court; more often it means exploring alternative options.
When you want to go through the court system, we will - but we find most of our clients want to avoid it. Our advice is always based on the law, but the steps we follow and the solutions we reach will be based on your goals.
We firmly believe the words of Erin Levine at Hello Divorce: “Lawyers should help sort it out, not ramp it up.”
Empowerment and accountability.
As lawyers, we educate, advise, and inform our clients. We provide you with the tools and information you need to make the best decisions for yourself and your family. But at the end of the day, you are in control. We provide guidance; you make decisions.
Likewise, everyone who works at Fresh Legal is accountable to each other and to you.
An effortless experience.
We know dealing with lawyers can be difficult and stressful. We know you already have enough on your plate. We do everything we can to reduce the effort you need to put in. You’ll see a lot of these features on our website. Need to book a meeting, access your documents, pay a bill? It’s all online, at your fingertips, whenever and wherever you need it.
As much as possible, we keep you updated on the progress of your case. Sometimes it’s just a quick email to tell you there’s no news - but we know you’re wondering how things are going, and we make it easier to stay updated by eliminating the need to ask.
Our clients are real people with real lives. We know the work we do impacts you deeply and long after you leave our office.
We know your life impacts your decision making, availability, and more. We have honest conversations at every step about your choices and the costs, both monetary and otherwise. We work with your schedule as much as possible, offering appointments outside of regular hours when needed.
We know you have a lot going on in your life right now, and we will make every effort to connect you with other professionals when required. We know speaking to a lawyer is only one piece of the puzzle; we try to help with the other pieces where we can.
Honesty and respect.
We respect our clients and each other. We will be honest with you, even when its hard for you to hear.
We are also respectful with opposing parties and opposing counsel, because we believe reaching the best outcome for you and your family is easier when everyone feels they are treated with kindness. Likewise, honesty means everyone is on the same page and more likely to find a lasting solution together.
