"We are attacking your legal problems with next-level analysis, purposeful strategy and attention to detail. Our firm is driven by unique principles and our staff is characterized by professionalism and legal experience in order to provide loyal, confidential assistance and high performance to our clients."
Our firm was founded by forward-thinking lawyers who wanted to break away from the traditional law firm model that was standard at the time, and which is still prevalent today. In building a law practice that surpassed the conventional, our founders recognized the value of a workplace that embraced varied perspectives, talents and interests - qualities beyond the ordinary.
Our legal services throughout the country serve our clients at a notably lower cost than the typical medium to large-sized law firms. As our clients tighten belts to accommodate an ever-tougher market economy, they have no tolerance for bloated legal costs. We use diverse, leveraged staffing, and alternative billing arrangements to achieve the greatest cost efficiencies possible.
The focus and goal for our clients begins with evaluation of and counseling on preventative measures and extend to efficient and economic handling of claims and lawsuits, through mediation, trial and appeal. Our common sense approach to legal matters and litigation, plus our business and trial experience, mean we stand ready to handle whatever conflict, crisis, or issue might arise.
Knowledge & Experience
We provide the legal structure and advice to make certain that you have the proper formation.
We respond directly, effectively and as efficiently as possible to the needs of our clients, combining exceptional, professional, and high-tech resources with a culture of personal, responsive service sometimes hard to obtain with a large firm.
Our superior service and performance comes from a team of exceptional legal professionals from different backgrounds who bring to our practice a wealth of ideas, knowledge and experience. The differences among our members bring strength and value to our workplace environment and to the work we do for our clients.
With 24/7 remote access to our offices and our files, we can practice from near and far. It is one of Cotten Schmidt, L.L.P.’s pledges to our clients: Apply leading edge technology to obtain desired results. We do so at our cost, not yours.
Early case assessment and early case resolution are key strategies we use for managing our client’s legal needs and legal budgets.
When necessary, however, we are ready for the long haul - ready and experienced at stepping into the courtroom as trial lawyers, not litigators, or the arbitration arena to handle our clients’ matters to the very end, through trial and appeal.
When it comes to the internal structure of the firm, respect, trust and diversity in every aspect of the practice is key. We do not have “practice sections” within the firm, but rather create teams for each specific, individual case and client. We do not have a hierarchy among the partners, which is common in most firms. We are deeply committed to diversity and flexibility of work-life arrangements.
