How do you decide what cases to take?
We focus on business legal work. As general counsel to many companies with whom we have longstanding, positive, professional relationships with, we selectively only take on appreciative clients, with whom we have connected with, and then we work hard to resolve any legal issues. Relationships take precedence over transactions. We generally offer our clients a complimentary in-person meeting once retained, to go over a legal document.
Do you take cases outside of California?
Yes. Although we practice primarily in California, we evaluate each case that is submitted to us no matter where it originates. We frequently work with co-counsel in other states. We encourage you to submit your matter for review regardless of where you live. We have co-counseled and offered referrals to attorneys in states outside of California when clients have interstate matters, including, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, New York, Washington DC, Washington state, Ohio, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maryland, Georgia and more. We have also made referrals to lawyers around the world, including, Canada, Australia, the UK and more. Lastly, Ms. Natbony is a law Partner of Aliant, LLP, an International Law Firm, with locations and attorneys in Argentina, Brazil, Cypress, Finland, France, Hungary, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Nigeria, China and Lebanon.
Do I have to pay to talk to one of your lawyers?
No. In nearly every case, an initial phone consultation with one of our attorneys is free.
What if I can’t afford to pay upfront to have an attorney represent me?
No problem. We often refer matters to lawyers who take cases on a contingency basis, meaning you owe attorneys’ fees only if the law firm is able to obtain money (via a settlement or a judgment at trial) on your behalf. These fees are typically calculated as a percentage of the money we recover for you.
Can I opt to keep my case confidential?
Yes. Many of our cases are handled discreetly and confidentially. Any decision to make the matter public is one that the client makes in consultation with our attorneys.
How is Solve & Win different?
We give our clients personalized and superior service. The attorney you hire, is the attorney who works with you to achieve your goals. We don’t outsource or shift to a subordinate.
We also care about your satisfaction. We will work with you to achieve your goals, to the very best of our ability. We bill in real time, which means that if you are billed for a 15-minute increment, we spent approximately that amount of time on your matter. We tend not to ding you for one text message like other law firms. Other law firms bill in 20-minute increments and will ding you 20 minutes for every 30 second text or 1 minute email. Rather, our bills might show several items in 15 minutes, all totaling approximately 15 minutes.
How can you help me?
Our attorneys are capable negotiators and advocates. We can resolve your case through phone calls, email, direct negotiations, mediation, or co-counsel with litigators if litigation ensues, through trial or appeal. No matter what path we take, our goal is to help you achieve your goals, whether that is through creating a mutually beneficial agreement that gets signed by another party or obtaining substantial compensation for the harm you and your business has suffered.
I have some business law questions. What is a good resource?
We suggest you watch the LawTake video on business formation.
I don’t live anywhere near your offices. Do I have to travel to your office?
No. We can handle your case without you needing to go out of your way to visit our office. We can tell you if you have a case right over the phone. We try to make the legal process as easy as possible for our clients by offering Skype sessions. We have clients around the globe.
