Clients know they can count on Schwartz, Page & Harding to bring a wealth of experience to every project.
Responsiveness. Being attentive
to client needs is a high priority for us, including returning
calls and messages promptly. We believe that timely legal advice
makes for good business decisions, so we’re always willing
to answer questions or discuss the potential business impact
of any pending legal matters we are handling.
Efficiency. Firm attorneys
and staff have decades of experience working together. That
means we know how to organize, staff and manage client projects
for maximum efficiency and value, without compromising thoroughness.
Because time is money, clients benefit from our ability to
work as a team and to anticipate and efficiently address challenges
as the project develops.
Attention to Detail. We
believe that a task performed completely and correctly the
first time saves time, money and patience for our clients and
eliminates the risks of delay.
Relationships. Due to the
nature of our practice, we have developed close working relationships
with representatives of the many local, state and federal regulatory
agencies engaged in this area of law. We communicate frequently
with legislators and are actively involved in drafting legislative
and other regulatory changes that positively impact our clients’
projects, as well as the industry as a whole. In addition,
we make it our business to stay abreast of legislative changes
likely to occur in the future and advise our clients accordingly.
Integrity & Ethics. As
with most law firms, our practice occasionally presents ethical
challenges. We believe in working aggressively, but never at
the expense of our integrity or meeting the highest of ethical
standards. You will quickly learn from our clients why we are
known for developing and executing a quality legal product
with uncompromising integrity and ethics.
Value. Our fees and rates
of charge compare very favorably to other firms and, together
with our expertise, experience and efficiency, translate into
value for our clients.
Reputation. We are proud
of the work we have done and what others say about it. We are
glad to supply client references and we are confident that
you will hear the same if you simply “ask around” the industry in the
communities where we have worked.
