About Our Firm
Berger Harrison is not the standard Southern California law firm. You're
more likely to see flip flops at our office than neckties. We know that
the typical law firm's business model converts attorneys into stuffy,
inaccessible billing machines. We eschew that stereotype and being available
to our clients is our top priority.
Our office door is always open. Clients of Berger ◊ Harrison never
encounter the fortress of receptionists and secretaries who insulate so
many attorneys from their clients.
We don't have an ad in the yellow pages (although, does anyone anymore?).
Virtually all of our business comes from referrals. We understand that
working hard to satisfy clients is the most effective form of marketing.
Free consultations are typically available to potential clients.
Our Commitment to Effective Communication
For a client, navigating legal affairs can be complicated and confusing.
You need capable, knowledgeable, and skilled attorneys. Beyond that, and
almost as important, you need a firm that you’re comfortable working
with. The nature of an attorney’s job is to work with people during
stressful times. That’s why the intangible chemistry between you
and your attorney is so critical. For hundreds of dollars per hour, that’s
not too much to ask.
We pride ourselves on our ability to communicate in a manner that suits
each client’s needs. We recognize that each client is different.
Some wish to be advised of all details at each step in the process. Others
prefer not to be bothered with anything more than quick-and-dirty summaries
of major developments. Most fall somewhere between those extremes. We’ll
make it a point to learn where you stand. If you prefer to roll up your
sleeves and closely study all aspects with us, that’s the way we’ll
handle your matter.
We’ve been in your shoes. We recognize that, as your lawyers, our
job is to arm you with the information and explanations you deem necessary
to assess your situation so that you’re able to make decisions that
will best serve you, your business, and your family.
