Philosophy

Litigation, even for the most experienced clients, is a stressful, emotional, and time consuming ordeal. As much as possible your lawyer should take the burden off your shoulders. Although it is unrealistic and presumptuous to suggest that a “website” can put your mind at ease when involved in a legal dispute, hopefully our philosophy and approach will reduce some of your burden and worry.

A successful attorney-client relationship isn’t just about a money transaction. In addition to legal skill and experience, a successful attorney-client relationship requires trust. And, trust is earned by actions. For his part, Dimitri Gross makes a commitment to:
  • Listen to you describe the problems and circumstances which led you to contact us
  • Be honest and straightforward when advising you about the case and fees/costs
  • Set fair and realistic expectations regarding the costs versus the benefits of your dispute
  • Plan a course of action that fits your circumstance with the ultimate goal of resolving the matter economically and efficiently.
  • Respond to calls and emails within 12 hours, and promptly report the status of the case, upcoming events, and communications with the court and opposing counsel
  • Work with you to determine how involved you want to be in the case. Some clients want to be very involved and others want to be hands off
