Who We Are
When it comes to law firms, bigger does not mean better. Regardless
of a firm’s size, most litigated cases are competently staffed
with one to three lawyers and a paralegal. Our firm is able
to deliver that same case staffing – with skill and work product
that matches, and usually exceeds, any “mega” law firm.
Moreover, as a boutique litigation firm, we’re not saddled with
the tremendous overhead that forces larger firms to charge
eye-popping hourly rates. We do our jobs more effectively,
more efficiently, and with greater energy than our competitors
– large or small. The bottom line for our clients is they
receive the highest quality legal services, delivered at optimum
We’re a boutique law firm focused on representing business owners
and policyholders in insurance coverage and commercial disputes. Unlike
larger firms that litigate with no regard for results or the bottom
line, we focus on solving our clients’ problems. If that
solution demands litigation, we litigate. But if we can craft
a less expensive and faster (but equally effective) solution,
we’ll solve the problem that way. Whatever the problem, we
do what it takes to solve it.
Our firm is comprised of professionals committed to solving client
problems effectively and efficiently. We’re equally comfortable
in a courtroom – litigating a case to resolution, or in a conference
room – negotiating a case to settlement. In either case,
our goal is singular – to define and achieve our clients' objectives.
How We Do Things
Our stock-in-trade is problem solving.
We solve our clients’ legal problems in “3-D.”
- We Define. At the outset of every
engagement, we ask our clients to define their objectives for
us. For some clients, the objective is a monetary recovery. For
others, the goal is enforcing a legal right. But whatever
the client’s objective, we aim to achieve it efficiently. With
that in mind, we make sure we fully understand our client’s
objectives before we start work on a case.
- We Design. Once we understand our
client’s objectives, we design a legal solution plan to achieve
those specific objectives. The cases we work on are complex,
involve significant dollars, and often implicate legal questions
that have never been answered. Off-the-shelf legal “blueprints”
don’t exist for our clients. We craft custom solution
plans designed to achieve client objectives – always with an
eye on the bottom line.
- We Deliver. The rubber hits the road
with delivery. Our success is measured by our ability
to deliver results to our clients that meet – or exceed – their
stated objectives. We have consistently delivered
those results, and then some. We do this through hard
work, dedication to the cause, and creative thinking. We
do not discriminate based on the size of the dispute. We
aim to deliver on every case for every client.
Every professional at Harper | Hayes PLLC commits to this “3-D”
philosophy. Similarly, every case we handle for every client
is governed by this “3-D” philosophy from beginning to end.
