In every profession there are the guys who can seem to get things done. For instance, I and my team have a great reputation of getting things done, even though sometimes fingers get stepped on, it is just the way it is. When you have a major fire in your life you call the fire truck, me! Difficult situations require specialist in getting a bad situation made better, putting that fire out and making sure it does not rekindle. I have always felt that if you have a plumber, electrician or a contractor that you can trust, as a home owner it is nothing short of a blessing. If you tend to have legal issues that keep popping up it is also a great thing to have a guy like Kent B. Goss, a partner with Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, who is on your side. That too is a good thing…. 213-612-2411. You feeling all is lost, call Kent.
Likewise, enter the world of lawyers. There are great firms with many years of building a great reputation and generally with decent results. You have the smaller firms and they too provide a function, a little more specialization and sometimes a more personal service. And of course sole practitioners. They too do an amazing job in their particular specialties. We have worked with many and all of the above over the last 21 plus years. One sole practitioner we are very fond of due to his incredible focus and knowledge of the law is Fred Silberberg, Lawyer. His success in getting things done is well documented. Do not stand in his way. And if you do, you could have an “ouch” moment. Fred is what we refer to as a “gunfighter with a law degree!” 310-556-1057 Another interesting practice is that of Dayton B. Parcells III. Mr. Parcells practice is also DIVORCE and he is also one very tough litigator. Don’t miss a chance to give Mr. Parcells a phone call, 310-201-9882…..both of these guys will give you a feeling of all will be well.
DO NOT LOOK FOR CHEAP. We are not good at doing things cheaply. As a very close friend of mine once told me, “pay peanuts, get monkeys.” Did I get that right Lisa? Another incredible choice when you are in a pinch is Benjamin Valencia II. Ben is a partner with Meyer, Olson, Lowy & Meyers. One of the great things about Mr. Valencia he can do law in two languages, English and Spanish. Again, remember this is a profession and a business, you better be able to right a check. You want conversation, do not waste these professionals time.
In this same vein, I feel there are several others in this often difficult field of “shooting from the hip.” This expression is a term of endearment for clients who are left in a serious legal quandary and who find themselves sinking fast! Fred Silberberg, Ron Rale, Melanie Shornick, Steve Knowles (deceased), Michael Collum and how could I ever forget Mark Vincent Kaplan. Kaplan, Silberberg and Collum are sole practitioners, Rale and Shornick are with Trope and Trope. And of course when things were going to the crapper and fast, it was always handed to Steve Knowles to get it fixed and pump some life into the case. Steve died several years ago. Steve was a friend to many and is still missed to this very day.
Do not misunderstand what I am saying, you have other excellent lawyers in Southern California. These lawyers that I have mentioned are excellent at taking your case from the “dark place” and getting it back on track, pumping new life into what may still be a losing battle in the end. Sometimes you jump in the pool and you either failed to realize the depth or the temperature of the water, cold and dark is what you will find most of the time. Knowing all of this you still wonder why do so many people enjoy the world of DIVORCE. Hmmmm, maybe it is also why I love playing the slots in Las Vegas! Sometimes I win and most of the time I lose, but it is the “hope” you will get similar results in a DIVORCE……
