At JMW, we consciously choose to offer a #onestoplawshop practice model. Why? Here are some of the reasons:
- Our firm was founded in the 1970’s. To sustain itself, a law firm at that time had to be able to handle virtually any issue encountered locally with stellar client service. This was a founding principle of our practice, and one that continues to shape our practice today.
- This is perhaps the most significant consideration when a law firm is deciding what services it will provide. In a large city, where lawyers are plentiful, there is a good reason to limit the practice areas. In a smaller city, with fewer lawyers, the local market needs professionals that can tackle a wide-range of issues. Though a growing city, Shakopee still has a small town feel and many folks want to keep their business local. With the Scott County Courthouse just two blocks away from our office, offering a #onestoplawshop provides the best service for our clients.
- Full-Service Advice. This is the number one benefit to choosing a law firm with a broad base of knowledge. We find that a client’s needs often overlap from one area of the law to another. For example, we may represent a client in their divorce, and the divorce may have issues related to a past or potential bankruptcy proceeding. The client may need estate planning, but also owns a small business that must be considered in the estate plan so the client’s wishes are carried out effectively. The client may need assistance with real estate work in conjunction with a divorce, a business deal, or in a probate or an estate planning matter. A client may also have a child with special needs that requires a court-appointed guardian or conservator following a family law matter.
Almost every client we serve has needs that span multiple practice areas. By having attorneys with experience in most practice areas, JMW is able to bring a team approach to handling client matters that provides the BEST advice possible for the client, and reasonable rates.
