The Gould Firm is committed to providing our clients with prompt and personalized attention. We endeavor and promise to give each client, and their case, the respect and attention it deserves. At The Gould Firm we strive to provide the highest quality of legal service, while adhering to the highest ethical standards. Our goal is always to obtain the best possible result for our clients.
At The Gould Firm we provide a level of service that is tailored to each client’s needs and do so in a relaxed atmosphere. Client relationships are important to us and we want to get to know our clients on a personal level. Unlike many larger firms, your case will be handled by a single attorney and a single highly skilled paralegal. Your case will not be passed around from one attorney to the next. This means the details of your case, and its unique issues, will be better understood. Our smaller size and selective case load allows us to get to know our clients on a more personal level and allows our clients to have direct access to the attorney and staff handling their case.
The Gould Firm offers flexible fee arrangements and generally charges a lower overall fee than many larger firms. Larger firms typically have a bigger overhead and many even impose minimum billable hour requirements on their attorneys. This means clients often pay higher rates or get charged for extra work which may be of little or no benefit. The Gould Firm tries to find the best fee agreement for the client by offering a variety of contingency and hybrid fee agreements, flat rate fee agreements, reasonable hourly rates, and flexible retainer requirements where needed. We believe in zealous representation but try wherever possible to weigh the cost of work to be performed against the possible benefit from it.
The Gould Firm represents clients in both State and Federal courts. We maintain a network of attorneys and experts in other parts of the state and outside of California. The Gould Firm routinely goes up against some of the biggest firms in the state. We are proud of our record of success we have achieved and the results we have consistently obtained for our clients. As a result of our success, many of our clients are direct client referrals, referred by other attorneys and some have been referred by retired judges who respect our reputation in the community.
When you are involved in a legal matter, you do not want to feel that your case is just another file on the attorneys shelf. You want to know your attorney is working hard for you and know that your attorney has your best interests in mind. We are here to serve.
