We are friends that left what most lawyers call “Big Law” jobs to work with the types of clients and on the types of projects we enjoyed the most. Scott started his legal career as a business transactions lawyer with a large Dallas based law firm before taking the job as the general counsel of a multi-national investment management group. Dawn was a partner in the Dallas office of a large nationally known law firm based out of New Orleans with a practice focused on commercial real estate and estate planning. While they left these positions for different reasons, they both desired to continue providing high quality legal services, but without the high cost associated with the downtown Dallas firms.
Why We Are Unique
We often hear from people that we don’t seem like lawyers. We view that as the highest of compliments because we try to approach legal work from a more practical perspective than most lawyers. Unlike firms that practice in many different areas of the law, we focus only on what we have done every day of our nearly 20 year legal careers. We founded our firm to bring this specialized expertise to our friends and neighbors in a cost effective manner. Whenever we are able to do so we give clients the option of a fixed fee at the start of a matter. As a result, they have certainty on their expense for the work and don’t have the constant nagging of a time clock adding up billable hours running in the background of every conversation.
