During our many years in practice, Lawson & Weitzen has been a partner-oriented Firm, building a strong and loyal client base on a foundation of quality, cost-effective and timely legal representation. The caliber of legal expertise, drive and focus that can be brought to bear at Lawson & Weitzen matches that found at the largest firms but with reasonable hourly rates.
Our medium size, unique personality, and stream-lined operation allows us to give the attention and personal touch every client desires and deserves. We deliver responsive and results-oriented legal services to all clients, regardless of the size or complexity of the issues.
Lawson & Weitzen’s success and reputation is driven by word of mouth, referrals from those we have worked for, and other lawyers. As such, we measure our past and future success based on our clients’ satisfaction. We listen to how you define success, understand your concerns and goals, and personally take responsibility for working toward effectively reaching your objectives.
As a medium-sized firm, Lawson & Weitzen has the best of both worlds: the highest quality legal talent, rivaling any traditional large firm, and the personal commitment and efficiency of a smaller and nimble practice.
