"I love being an Attorney and Counselor at Law who handles Family Law and other personal matters.  I get to talk to all kinds of great people from all over New York City and the world.  Sure, we discuss making the right choices about their legal problems and what kind of options the law offers.  But we also get to sneak in a little chit chat about the good grades their children got, the trip they’ve got planned, or how we can’t wait for spring and summer so that we can get out and about.  It’s great!

In fact, there’s only one kind of call I DON'T like.

It’s the kind I get when a potential client calls us and is very concerned because they didn’t know us previously and their legal problems were not resolved to their satisfaction by the people they previously used.  Sometimes they just found out their spouse cheated them in a divorce settlement, they can’t get custody of their child, they paid legal and other fees that were higher then they should have paid when they purchased or sold their house, condo or co-op, they should have received more for their injuries in an accident, their doctor or dentist has injured them, or their insurance coverage is too low to protect them in a lawsuit.

And you know what the worst part is? They called us after those events were handled improperly - so they probably lost their chance to switch to an attorney that offered the benefits and services they needed.  And they were going to be stuck with the problems for the rest of their life.  Those calls just break my heart.

I want to make sure you don’t have those problems." --Douglas Colbert
