Our Commitment To You
By their very nature, legal problems involve financial and emotional issues that can dramatically affect people's lives. Being involved in the legal system can be a stressful, frustrating, and intimidating experience for most non-lawyers-and not just for the people who have been drawn into legal conflicts. Their families face hardships and difficult decisions as well. Realizing many common legal problems can involve a fair amount of acrimony and tension, our philosophy is to relieve your anxiety and stress. You not only need a skillful attorney, you should have someone who can reduce your-and your family's-distress. At the Law Office of B. Diane Heindel, our clients know that they are not "going it alone"-they have the assurance, relief, and sense of being in control that comes from knowing that they are in the capable hands of a caring and understanding team of legal professionals.
The staff of the Law Office of B. Diane Heindel are committed to being that team for you. And we have the expertise to back it up. We are genuinely concerned about your well-being; we strive to nurture a personal relationship with each one of our clients, and we give all of them our fullest possible personal attention. It is our intention to be the legal equivalent of a "family doctor": we want to handle all of your legal needs in a comprehensive and coordinated manner.
We do not believe that cost should be a barrier to people obtaining the legal services that they need; so we also do our best to ease the financial burdens that can attend legal difficulties. We accept all major credit cards, and are willing to set up a payment plan that accommodates your individual financial circumstances.
Unlike many of the larger law firms, we don't view our clients as just file numbers in a "settlement factory". Our focus is on each of our clients' unique needs. We will do everything necessary to keep you informed and knowledgeable about your particular legal problem. That means that we stress personal attention, responsiveness, and accessibility: We listen to you. We return your phone calls promptly. We regularly report to you on the status and progress of your case.
Our philosophy is to try and negotiate, mediate, or arbitrate a fair settlement without going to court whenever possible. If handled properly, mediation and arbitration are less costly and more expeditious than trials. Clients should realize that they will have more control over the outcome in a mediation or arbitration as opposed to a trial. But if a fair and just negotiated or mediated settlement cannot be reached, you can rest assured we are not afraid to try lawsuits: if a trial cannot be avoided, we will aggressively advocate for your rights and your interests in court.
In short, it is our core commitment to focus on each client's individual background, objectives, and goals. We welcome the opportunity to serve ALL of your legal needs.
