While retaining our well-known tax expertise, we have grown and diversified our capabilities to include: litigation, corporate and general business, mergers and acquisitions, banking and finance, real estate, bankruptcy and creditors' rights, estate planning, probate, criminal law, intellectual and propriety rights, information technology, personal injury, medical malpractice, alternative dispute resolutions and family law.
Our ability to handle sophisticated legal matters in these specialized areas is coupled with the personal, responsive touch that only a medium-sized firm like ours can provide. This combination allows us to serve the legal needs of individuals and the owners of small and medium-sized privately-held businesses - the core of our client base - as well as larger organizations that retain the firm for specialized projects.
We emphasize effective representation that is delivered economically and expeditiously, because we recognize what clients need and demand from their lawyers. For example, we approach complicated legal matters with specialized staffing, each attorney focusing on a different aspect of the situation, rather than having two or three attorneys working on the same issue. Such "parallel processing" allows us to arrive at resolutions more quickly and, therefore, less expensively.
In addition, our paralegals work under the supervision of the firm's attorneys and are able to handle selected tasks at significant cost savings to our clients. Our support personnel, in turn, provide efficient and economical attention to our clients' needs.
We treat all clients, whether individuals or large companies, with the same care and attention in our efforts to help them accomplish their objectives and protect their legal interests.
For those clients who may have a particular legal problem that requires a specialty not available in our firm, we partner with a network of law firms that specialize in areas of the law outside the scope of our practice. We have found that our clients appreciate this approach because they receive the expertise needed to resolve their legal needs in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
Many of our attorneys are current or former Certified Public Accountants which is of utmost value in all aspects of our practice.
We invite you to review the following discussions of our practice specialties, which summarize the quality legal representation that is available at McCarthy, Lebit, Crystal & Liffman.
