Hale Sides LLC recognizes that effective counsel and advocacy for our clients begins—first and foremost--- with clear and effective communication. We understand most clients are people first, who just happen to become clients. We also know that most people and clients have a low tolerance of ---and even less appreciation for--- “legalese” when talking with their lawyer. We know that because we are people, too, who just happened to become lawyers later. And, we also know that to communicate effectively, a lawyer has to be able to listen to his client, in order to understand the concerns or questions the client has, before the lawyer can analyze and advise an appropriate recommendation or suggest a viable plan of action.
