W. Bevis Schock - Attorney at Law

The client has come to the attorney not because it is a beautiful spring day but because the client has a problem. Upon entering the attorney’s office the client is worried about at least three things:

  • Whether the problem can be solved at all.
  • Whether this is the attorney who can solve it.
  • Whether the fees are going to be fair.

My answers to these worries are as follows:

I have been in the general practice of law for 30 plus years and so I have a few battle scars. I can normally provide an initial evaluation by the end of the first meeting.

I think the client has to feel in the gut whether I am the right lawyer. I can tell you that I only take cases in which I think I can help. I can also tell you that at the end of the first meeting the client can walk out and pay nothing. When it feels right both sides know it.

I practice on my own. I like to think I am light on my feet and can work reasonably quickly. I do my best to charge fair fees.
