In 1999, after working as an attorney for the U.S. Senate and for several law firms, I decided to start my own small business: a law firm. I took a creative approach to running my new office, as one of the first Seattle attorneys to rent conference room space for meetings on an as needed basis while maintaining a home office. My goal was to reduce overhead by avoiding the swanky and expensive downtown office costs, and then passing those savings on to my clients through reasonable hourly billable rates.
Rather than a prestigious downtown view and “free” cappuccinos, my ideal client is more interested in quality legal work, outstanding service and developing a long term relationship with high integrity, smart and engaged lawyers. My firm continues to utilize technology to work remotely and maximize efficiency. Our clients appreciate this cost savings – especially during this challenging economic period.
Office Setup – Pro-Environment:
We are a virtual office – utilizing a mail center and conference room (Contact / Maps). I have a home office and Lisa Vargo (Attorney), Andrea Logan (Paralegal) and Kristen Larsen (Office Administrator) also maintain home offices. Client files are maintained digitally to the greatest extent possible, and everyone works with these digital files via a secure server. Our setup is creative, works splendidly, and shows sensitivity for our environmental and climate challenges my minimizing automobile commutes and needless paper.
