What We Offer
Value

Although a substantial portion of our work is conducted on a nationwide basis, our Midwestern roots are reflected in our pricing.  We want to partner with our clients to reach the right solutions for all of us.  And, while much of our work is done on a traditional, hourly basis, we offer a variety of alternatives on projects that are best approached differently:

  • fixed-fee contracts focused on specific types of matters;
  • fixed-fee contracts based on the phases of a matter;
  • fixed-fee contracts for specific services; and
  • outcome-driven fees ranging from traditional contingency fees to hybrid billing.

There's no one best system.  A value-oriented, more flexible approach is a better model for both attorneys and clients.

Assessing Advanced Cellphone Location Evidence

In recent years, all the major cellular providers have developed advanced technology that purports to determine the approximate locations of cellphones on the providers' networks, even without GPS. Law enforcement has been especially interested in this technology for locating a cellphone before, during, or after a crime. It offers the same promise in civil cases.
