Erskine & Tulley’s roots go back to 1911. Since then, the firm has served its clients as a general civil practice firm, providing a broad range of transaction, planning, consultative and litigation legal services of both a business and personal nature. The firm’s focus today is on all aspects of corporate, partnership, business and insurance matters, with particular expertise in all phases of real estate.
Erskine & Tulley prides itself in providing a total quality response to a client’s problems as efficiently and economically as possible. The firm does not “leverage” associate attorneys, as most larger firms do, to increase billable time. Rather, the firm strives to have only one attorney bill his time to the client, even though ideas are discussed, support is provided and solutions are reached with other members of the firm. The experience level of the firm’s attorneys allows the firm to respond directly and efficiently to clients’ concerns, without duplication of effort. Through the use of computerized legal research and other technological resources, as well as long-term paralegal support staff, the firm remains efficient and keeps its fees reasonable.
This approach provides the firm’s clients with the best of both worlds: Clients receive the resources of an established firm with considerable experience and expertise, while also receiving the one-on-one attention and personal concern of an attorney in sole practice.
Principal tenets of the firm’s operating philosophy also include:
- Prompt, full and candid client communications;
- A team concept between attorney and client; and
- Foresight and preventive planning, before a problem becomes magnified and an impediment to the client’s goals.
These concepts allow the client to “make a deal”, not “break the deal,” and promote quick and cost-effective problem resolution, resulting in a savings in legal expenses.
