Why Hire FizerLLC?

People who look for a lawyer usually do so for one or both of the following reasons:

  • They have to, even though they may not want to
  • They want to, even though they may not have to

No matter which reason it is, people contact a lawyer because they don’t know the best way to handle the matter by themselves; that makes them anxious, and uneasy. What is even more distressing is that in some instances, they have little or no familiarity with either the legal issue or the procedure involved. Many people also do not know whether the lawyer they contact is going to know what he or she is doing, and whether he or she will treat them fairly.

Finding a lawyer to handle a legal issue can evoke the same feeling people experience with car repairs. With no disrespect to auto mechanics (I have known many, both good and bad, and my current mechanic is great, by the way), people often wonder, “Does my car really need all that work?” or “Is my car going to work right after I pay all this money?” or “Is the problem what the mechanic is telling me  it is, or something else?”

This is one of the reasons why I practice law the way I do.

When you contact Fizer ❖ LLC, I will take the time to find out what the issue is, and let you know what I can do to help you with it. If I can help you, then I will make an agreement with you that will include what I will do, what the goal will be, and what the cost will be.

If you become a client, I will answer your questions, explain the process, and keep you informed. If I cannot help you, not only will I tell you that, but I will be happy to refer you where you may be able to find the help you need. 

Please explore my Bio, and our Areas of Practice. If who I am and what I do seems to be what you need, call. Your initial consultation is free.
