Client-Focused SOLUTIONS and results
Our firm is focused on our clients’ demands for an exceptional legal service model that provides value. We understand that, for clients, value is not a mere hourly rate comparison. Value means efficient processes for tracking and reporting; creative approaches to reducing legal risk; enhanced cost certainty; and RESULTS.
With each representation, our team is focused on the desired results. While some firms may only focus on the next step in the process, our team focuses the strategy at each stage of litigation on the end result. Focusing on the client's preferred result is an integral part of the strategic process for each case.
We have designed a system focused on client service. We have done so by aligning our culture, structure and processes with one goal in mind – CLIENT SATISFACTION.
Diversity & Inclusion
We have designed our firm to be a reflection of our society, including promoting individuals to leadership positions regardless of race, religion or orientation.
Maintaining and expanding the diversity of our team is a central tenet of our firm. We actively recruit diverse team members. We ensure all team members receive challenging work assignments and that all lawyers receive client exposure opportunities consistent with their demonstrated skill and ability.
Flexible, Value-DriveN Approach
In approaching each case, each team member is encouraged to have ownership of the clients and results. With our team’s experience, we effectively provide clients with the attention and commitment that they expect and deserve. We strive to provide a value-driven approach to each case by communicating and strategizing with our clients to meet their needs and goals.

Women's Empowerment and Success

Our firm focuses on enhancing the professional and personal development of our women team members and fosters their success in the workplace, community and in their lives. Through various programs, we exchange ideas, foster and expand business contacts and opportunities and enhance development to fully realize the talent, knowledge and potential of our women team members.
beyond the billable hour
At Adelman Law Firm, we believe in an entrepreneurial legal services business model, that is unrestrained by the billable hour based business model. We recognize that clients place value on shifting legal fee risk to law firms. Shifting this risk to a firm often aligns the firm’s incentives with the client’s, and reduces client risk. In addition, clients who lack financial resource needed to pursue important litigation are provided the opportunity to pursue it. These arrangements provide predictable cash flow and budgeting to both the firm and client.
Alternative fee arrangements (AFAs) are agreements between the firm and client to provide compensation to the firm through other than hourly billing. These arrangements take the form of fixed fees, value or success based fees or other alternatives to hourly fees, etc. AFA arrangements often span more than one case. We have experience in negotiating AFAs to handle a portfolio of defense cases.
