BBW will represent your interests every step of the way. At the same time we will counsel you and assist with your decision-making.

The legal matter you need to resolve may have a profound effect on your life, so make sure that you are well represented by contacting BBW.
Access to Legal Services
Initial consultation is free. Fees may be hourly, percentage, or flat fee, depending on the nature and the specifics of the case. These matters will be discussed during the initial consultation. BBW employs up-to-date technology and experienced legal assistants to expedite the handling of your case and save you money.
The privacy of communications between client and lawyer is the foundation of the practice of law. We regularly represent clients in situations of the utmost delicacy, where any breach could be damaging to the client's interests. Confidentiality is our professional obligation, and our promise to you.
Delivery of high quality legal services requires high standards of integrity and performance. Over the years, we have built excellent professional relationships with judges, court staff, law enforcement officials, social service workers, and opposing counsel all over the state. No lawyers are more respected, and our clients reap the benefits of our solid reputation.
We offer both expertise and diligent attention to your interests, at reasonable rates. We encourage potential clients to compare our prices and results with those of other law firms.
When you compare us to other firms, you might want to watch out for:
» Lawyers who use "in-your-face" advertising
The more advertising that a law firm does, the more likely that the law firm is focused on the business of law rather than the practice of law. Clients of those firms are more likely to be diligently billed than well-represented. After all, advertising costs money. Big money. As in any consumer transaction, a hard sell is usually designed to market an inferior product. The primary focus of the lawyers at BBW is on service to clients. We get paid for what we do, but that is not why we do it. Most of our clients come to us by way of referrals from other clients, and from lawyers who know us and respect the services we provide.
» Lawyers who promise satisfaction
Any lawyer who promises favorable results is probably more interested in getting your money than in serving your interests. Any honest lawyer knows that it is extremely rare for any party to be completely satisfied -- there is always something that might have gone better. Lawyers who practice any particular type of law for many years may be able to predict a range of possible outcomes (which is what we do at BBW), but there are too many variables and too many people involved in any legal process for a lawyer to make any sort of a promise. It is understandable that someone seeking legal help may want a lawyer who is enthusiastic about their case, but a lawyer who is enthusiastic is probably either greedy or inexperienced. Clients are better served by a lawyer who realistically and dispassionately discusses all the favorable and unfavorable possibilities; and who exhibits appropriate optimism tempered by appropriate concern. This is what you will find at BBW: the truth, not empty promises.
» Lawyers who tell you early and often how "tough" they are
Anyone, regardless of whether they have a law license, can walk into a courtroom and say "no" to everything; argue with everyone; strut and posture for all the world; refuse to compromise on any issue, no matter how small. Is that ever the best way to get what you want? Lawyers who practice this way are paid for showmanship, not for results. The lawyers who serve clients most effectively are the ones who know when to ask for something, and when to demand it; and who can do either of those things without alienating all the other players in the legal system who have the ability to affect your interests. The lawyers at BBW are experienced and skilled at recognizing what methods are most likely to be effective under the circumstances of any case.
» Lawyers who are willing to do whatever you want, so long as you pay
Lawyers who exhibit questionable ethics in the context of a legal dispute usually do their clients more harm than good. Cleverness, in an effort to avoid the truth, is most often discovered; and it always counts against the person who is trying to hide the truth. A good lawyer will tell you in advance how some unfavorable fact will affect your case, and will do their best to minimize the damage to you. Often, the best thing to do with a bad fact is to get it out and deal with it immediately. Such candor may disarm the opponent; and judges tend to appreciate and to look favorably upon the lawyer and the client who are forthright. At BBW, our belief that clients are best served by honesty and fair dealings has been proven repeatedly over our years of successful service. We zealously pursue a client's interests by use of all appropriate means.
A legal problem can affect your life in significant ways. Employ a lawyer who inspires your confidence in his or her ability to serve you. Keep comparing until you find the right one for you. If we cannot handle your particular legal problem, we at BBW will be happy to refer you to lawyers who can.
