Q: Selecting the right attorney feels daunting and overwhelming. Where do I begin?

A: Take time to explore options. Ask friends and colleagues for recommendations. Once you have a short list, conduct your own research. Are you more comfortable with a small or large firm? Check out their qualifications, review their websites and profiles. Once you have narrowed your list to two or three, schedule a meeting with each attorney. Ask about their philosophy and approach. Do they feel consistent with your goals? Do they clearly explain the process and outline a strategy you’re comfortable with? Trust your instincts to decide what’s right for you.

Q: How do clients benefit from working with your firm?

A: Our clients benefit from our reputation and goal-centric approach. Our reputation is guided by fundamental principles of integrity,
professionalism and results. We employ these in all aspects of our representation. We develop a custom-tailored plan to help our client achieve his or her desired goals in the most cost-effective way.

While some firms market themselves as being aggressive litigators or collaborative peacemakers, we handle all resolution methods. We effectively handle matters involving mediation, alternative dispute models, collaborative methods, litigation and everything in between. We consider ourselves in a partnership with clients. We don’t just tell them what to do, we explain all options and most likely outcomes. Working in partnership, we map a plan and create a strategy to achieve our clients’ goals, keeping them informed throughout the entire process. We are vigilant about staying in communication with clients.

Rismiller Law Group practices in the areas of family law, employment law, business planning and formation, trusts and estates law, and civil and criminal litigation. We combine experience and compassion to provide effective legal representation with integrity, professionalism and unrivaled commitment to our clients’ best interest.
