Firm Details

For more than 30 years, our focus has been on providing the highest quality legal service in the most responsive manner possible.  We know that you come to us for legal advice and guidance for matters that are important in your life.  That is why we put you in the hands of an attorney with the experience needed to handle your problem effectively and efficiently.  When you examine the credentials, experience and reputation of our attorneys, you will be impressed by what you see.  We do not rest on our laurels, and will work hard to earn your trust and confidence every day.  We are proud of what we do and how we do it, and we look forward to helping you reach your goals.

At Katz Teller, we practice law with one thing in mind:  our clients.

As clients, you motivate our decisions from the conceptual to the practical, from our service model to how we welcome you off the elevator when you visit us.  We strive to deliver everything you would choose if you could design a law firm.

How we practice

You are why we have designed the firm to be profitable without profiting at your expense.  We handle matters with the right person, at the right experience level, and do not use your legal issues to train our younger attorneys or evaluate their performance or development.  Our only priority is to get you the help you need.  You can see that in the fact that we do not have minimum billable hour requirements.  No one at Katz Teller is told to bill a quota of more than 1800 hours at the risk of his or her professional advancement, and we offer our attorneys no incentive to do unnecessary or inefficient work.  Indeed, where you have an opportunity to save costs and still receive high quality service, we will advise you of it and suggest that you take it.

How we hire

You are why we have rigorous hiring demands.  We know you want attorneys who have been recognized as leaders in their fields of practice, and we pursue attorneys with that designation or potential.  Our peers have recognized the excellence of our attorneys across-the-board – almost 90 percent of our attorneys have been selected by their peers nationally for inclusion in Woodward/White's The Best Lawyers in America®.

How we listen and respond

You are why we make ourselves available whenever your needs arise and return your calls at our first opportunity.  We take emergency calls at 11:30 at night or provide our daily schedules in our outgoing voicemail messages because we want you to connect with us and to know that we are always here for you as your trusted advisors.

How we see you

At Katz Teller, our corporate clients are relationships, not revenue sources.  Our individual clients are people, not profit centers.  You challenge us to be creative, to collaborate with you, to share your triumphs and guide you through trying times.  We are, and will always be, a law firm built around you.
