Our Firm and Our Commitment
MayaLaw has offices located in New York, NY and Westport, CT. Most of our attorneys are licensed to practice in multiple states including New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey. All of our attorneys have experience at both the state and federal levels. Today, our firm can look with pride at the roster of clients ranging from individuals, entrepreneurs, and families, to privately-owned businesses, major financial institutions, and multinational corporations. Whether it is a high stakes divorce, an employment dispute, or a family estate plan, the attorneys at MayaLaw are here to serve your needs.
Here at MayaLaw, we strive to provide large firm service, experience, and ability, but with small firm communication, attention, and accountability. Our attorneys will not accept a matter unless they are certain that we, as a firm, can service it efficiently and effectively. Every client is important at MayaLaw and is treated accordingly. This means zealous representation, consistent communication, and fair billing.
Large Firm Experience, Small Firm Client Attention
When we meet potential clients for the first time, potential conflicts of interest are promptly disclosed and frankly discussed by our attorneys. Matters are staffed at levels consistent with our goals of quality and economy. We do not assign two lawyers to do the job of one, and we do not generate unnecessary paperwork. A partner is assigned to supervise each client’s file and is available to confer with that client at any time regarding its handling. Our partners each supervise a set of attorneys and cases to ensure the best outcome for every client.
Most of our engagements are preceded by an attorney conference at which the client’s needs are carefully identified. Realistic goals and fees for our representation are discussed and determined. The nature of our undertaking is set forth in a retainer agreement, which contains an explanation of your lawyer's billing rates and charges. The partner assigned to the file will ensure that the client’s matter is promptly handled, appropriately staffed, and fairly billed. If you ever have a question or a concern about your case or billing procedures, our partners and attorneys are always on call.
Our attorneys make every effort to keep our clients informed as to the status of their case and to promptly return phone calls and emails. Clients are encouraged to maintain close contact with their attorneys through candid and constructive interchange of ideas and information. We also believe that intelligent use of technology allows us to provide better service and can significantly reduce our clients’ legal expenses. Not only does efficient use of technology lower our clients’ bills, but it also allows our attorneys to be available when you need them most.
