How do you distinguish yourself from the competition?

Denise M. Guzman, Business, Estate Planning and Trust Attorney: “I am very thoughtful in my approach, no matter if it is a business, trust or estate planning client. I take the time to get to know who the client is as a person, their threshold of risk, and over the past 30+ years I’ve learned how to ask the right questions. The client doesn’t always know which facts are relevant to their case, so I learned to read body language when communicating with a client. The more I know the person, the better I am at protecting them.”

How do you advise your clients to achieve and maintain success?

Denise M. Guzman: “Be proactive. Whether it’s business or estate planning, it’s about creating a strong foundation that the next generation can work from. It helps everyone involved have a clear picture of where they are going.”

What is the biggest challenge facing your clients today? How do you help them with those challenges?

Richard A. Luftman, Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Attorney: “Keeping up with everything they face in their daily lives. Many of our clients are busy with work and family so they look to us to guide them with their estate planning and wealth management issues. We strive to give them peace of mind so they can focus on their lives while at the same time knowing that their family will be well cared for in the future.”

What is the biggest benefit that your clients gain from working with you?

George G. Romain, Business Litigator and Employment Lawyer: “The greatest value our clients gain from working with us is peace of mind. As result of our hard work and expertise, our clients can trust in our recommendations on any given point. ‘Protecting the needs of each and every client’ is not only the cornerstone of our philosophy and practice but also the reason why our clients continue to turn to us.”
