legal philosophy

During my 45 plus years of practicing law in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida I have tried to follow the teachings of the lawyers and judges of the area. That is to always keep in contact with your clients, communication is the key to a successful practice and always maintain good client service, by returning calls made to the office and letters and/or emails be responded to in as quick a manner as possible. I consider this to be called an Old School Lawyer.
