PERSONAL - THOUGHTFUL - FORWARD THINKING
Downs Law is a boutique business law firm with an emphasis on business disputes (litigation), commercial landlord/tenant matters, construction and collection, as well as providing general legal counsel for small businesses. Downs Law was started with the aim of providing quality legal services in a personal, thoughtful and forward-thinking manner.
WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT SIMPLIFYING YOUR LEGAL PROBLEMS
Will Downs, attorney and founder, brings a passion for counseling clients through the law’s uncertainty, simplifying complex legal problems, and for providing clear communication. Downs Law accomplishes that by utilizing technology to enhance the client experience. We provide each client with a client portal that allows us to securely share documents, send messages, and easily communicate and calendar events via your desktop or your smartphone.
TRUST & TRANSPARENCY
Downs Law was formed around the core principles of trust and transparency. We’re committed to earning your trust from the outset. We’ll review your background facts and pertinent documents, and if we think we can help, we’ll provide an honest outline of the steps we’ll take to get you to your desired goal and a realistic budget of what those services will cost.
INFORMING AND EQUIPPING OUR CLIENTS
We want you to be as well-informed as possible about your legal issues and what can be done to solve them before you incur unnecessary time and expense. We understand that the difficult decision to hire a lawyer should not be made unless you’re armed with as much information as possible.
CLEAR AND CONSISTENT COMMUNICATION
We strive to keep you informed throughout our representation. Our team works together to communicate clearly on all aspects of your case, from upcoming deadlines to the next steps to move your case forward. We share all documents, sent or received, with you, and obtain your advance approval before sending important case communications or filings. We recognize that most of our clients are not lawyers, so we try to avoid confusing “legalese” (words or phrases only a lawyer might understand - or pretend to understand).
WHY WE MIGHT NOT BE A GOOD FIT…
Unfortunately, our approach may not be right for everyone. As much as we’d love to work with you, there are many other great lawyers out there! In particular, we may not be a good fit if:
You are looking for a “pit bull” or “bulldog” litigator
You are looking to cut down on costs by attempting to draft documents or legal responses yourself
You don’t have time to answer our questions or provide requested information.
