Our Approach

The BeMent Law Firm believes the practice of law is a service business. As such, it  requires frank discussion between  lawyers and clients where reasonable expectations are clearly defined and agreed, risks are properly identified and managed, and obligations are acknowledged and appropriately met. 

As a litigation oriented practice, we evaluate each potential new client and matter with two very basic criteria:

1.  Can the Firm provide legal work that materially advances the ball for the client in a measurable way?

2.  Does it make financial sense for the client and the Firm to pursue it?

The above two questions sound simple enough, but each involves a host of additional questions and considerations, too long to adequately address here, that should be worked through on an initial phone call or in-person meeting.  We believe finding a good fit has value in its own right, and will not hesitate to decline or refer to other attorneys those matters which, in our estimation, are likely to be a better fit elsewhere. 

As for the cases we take, we settle them, we  try them, or, under the right circumstances,  we  do a little of both by narrowing the issues to present to the judge or jury.
