We are an aggressive, proactive law firm with extensive experience in civil litigation, including tort, business, real estate and labor and employment matters. We have a proven record of success. We take pride in our results and our ability to obtain prompt resolutions.
We are committed to achieving the best results at the earliest opportunity. Yet, we are fully capable of taking the most complex matters through trial. We know clients have high expectations, and we are prepared and eager to meet them.
Our focus is broader than each individual case. We are very interested in each client's specific background, present needs and long-term goals. We recognize that clients have choices when it comes to selecting attorneys, and we strive to make Van Riper Law the best choice.
We believe it is essential from the outset to know our clients, their business, philosophies and goals. This knowledge allows us to represent our clients in a manner consistent with their desires and expectations.
We work jointly with our clients to develop a detailed strategy, along with a budget forecast, designed to meet specific objectives at the earliest opportunity. We then implement that strategy aggressively. We believe in shaping the course of our cases rather than simply reacting to developments as they occur.
We pride ourselves on our communication with clients. We keep them well informed of the status of each matter at every stage along the way. We promptly respond to inquiries, consult with respect to ongoing work, and provide status reports on newly developed facts and the application of the law. We ensure constant and complete communication with respect to every legal matter referred to us.
In our experience, desired results are achieved, on the most cost-effective basis, through early and focused efforts. We direct our initial energies toward potential early resolution. If early closure is not possible, our approach also places our clients in the strongest possible future negotiation or trial posture.
