At Harrison & Smyth, P.A. we know you come to us because, in the end, you want long-term resolutions for your legal concerns. Based on this knowledge, we believe you would prefer to pay more up front for solutions that truly resolve your issues long-term rather than to pay more money over time for short-term fixes that only address symptoms instead of root causes. Additionally, while you are willing to pay a reasonable fee for quality work, we recognize you do not want to pay for unnecessary work.
This is why, at Harrison & Smyth, we are committed to taking the time to listen to you and understand all of your questions and concerns. We also believe it is important to take the time to thoroughly assess all relevant legal options available. We do this, in part, by drawing upon our expertise and, when necessary, by researching unfamiliar issues. A number of your issues may require expertise beyond the legal realm. When these situations arise, we seek to consult and collaborate with professionals from other disciplines. Also, when appropriate, we may seek to consult with your family, friends, or ecclesiastical leaders.
Some of your legal issues arise because of a dispute that cannot easily be resolved. We recognize that litigation is both time consuming and expensive and we believe it should only be used as a last resort. Before turning to litigation, we bring to bear the same approach mentioned above to find alternative options. Additionally, we work to bring all parties together to seek a win/win solution. We are willing to litigate only where there are no reasonable alternative options, no win/win solutions, or where one or more parties are unwilling to come together. In such cases, we are prepared to vigorously advocate on your behalf.
This is a somewhat unique approach to the practice of law. It is based on many of the principles found in the Integrative Law Movement. We genuinely believe using this approach enables us to better serve your needs and will ultimately save you time and money because we can give you the best advice to help resolve your concerns and achieve your long-term goals.
