"I really appreciate everything you have done for me throughout this process. Thank you for believing in me from the beginning. Everyone I interacted with was extremely helpful and supportive. This was a difficult thing for me to go through and your law firm handled it with class and dignity. I would be remiss if I didn't say that you were spectacular in the court room. Thank you for everything you have done for me. You and your team will always have a special place in my heart."
The paramount reason for the existence of HoganWillig is to take our combined knowledge and turn it into value for the use and benefit of our clients.
For over 35 years, our clients have counted on us to handle a wide range of legal matters that require detail-oriented and effective counsel. We strive to serve every client with integrity and understanding and our goal is to remain a client-focused and responsive law firm, dedicated to meeting each clients' specific needs.
Our firm is organized into various departments, including: Civil Litigation, Corporate & Business Law, Criminal Defense, Estate Planning & Elder Law, International Law, Matrimonial & Family Law, Medical Malpractice, Personal Injury, Real Estate Law and Vehicle & Traffic Law.
With nearly every facet of our lives affected in some way by the need for legal services, HoganWillig vows to offer the high quality, cost-effective service you deserve. We want to be the law firm you turn to, and work hard to be the law firm you stay with.
It is typical for a client's legal issue to encompass a number of different legal areas. At HoganWillig, we take a team approach to resolving the interdisciplinary issues facing our clients. Our team approach enables us to draw upon a range of experience and knowledge, encourages innovative thinking and fosters the development of creative solutions.
We have found it essential to use a team approach to achieve the best possible results for clients. We live by this philosophy and we practice law by utilizing a collaborative approach, combined with the efficient use of modern technology. This allows us to provide the highest quality, cost-effective legal service and ensure that our clients receive sound advice and the strongest possible representation.
Technologically Savvy = Cost-Effectiveness
Emerging technologies, growing competition and a rapidly changing business environment reinforce the need for law firms to be flexible and innovative in order to meet clients' needs. Our innovative approach and willingness to remain a client-focused firm has meant using and implementing new technologies, such as case management software, smartphones and secure remote connections which allow for off-site access of voicemail, email and case files.
To effectively develop and maintain our attorney-client relationships, HoganWillig has invested in sophisticated information systems technology, support and related training, including an in-house network engineer/technology administrator. Our firm remains state-of-the-art in both legal practice and technical support through regular attendance at educational forums and seminars, and employee training and enrichment programs for our support staff.
It is this constant focus towards remaining a client-focused law firm and a strong willingness to adapt to an ever-changing legal and business environment that has allowed HoganWillig to expand and grow into suburban Western New York's largest full service law firm.
Your Legal Resource
From time to time, we are reminded that many people who seek the services of a lawyer are concerned that the "clock starts running" from the moment the call begins. We understand that sometimes people are presented with legal questions that can be quickly resolved in a single conversation. However, they hesitate to call because of concerns about the cost of doing so. We want to remind our valued clients that, as a member of the HoganWillig client family, if you have a legal question, we want you to feel free to call us. If the question or concern can be addressed in a short telephone conversation, you will not receive a bill. If it is apparent to the attorney taking your call that the issue will require more than a short telephone conversation to analyze or resolve the issue, the attorney will let you know and discuss the options available to you in retaining HW for these more complicated issues. (This courtesy offer cannot be extended for pending legal matters that are being billed.)
