Aside from our experience and the quality of our work, what sets us apart from other law firms?
The answer is quite simple. It is our caring team approach that understands the importance of communicating with you. One of the biggest areas of attorney client dissatisfaction is the lack of communication. Good attorneys have unhappy clients simply because they fail to let their clients know that they are working for them. That is never a problem at Charles T. Newland & Associates. We pride ourselves on our communication with every client. You should never go more than 24 hours without a return phone call or an email from the attorney handling your matter. If for any reason one of our attorneys is unavailable, you will receive some form of communication from one of our knowledgeable staff member that will do their best to answer your questions, provide you needed updates and advise you as to when your attorney will be available to speak to you directly. We also make every effort to provide you with copies of any and all correspondence, pleadings or other filed or served documents so you know for a fact that we are working for you.
