What We Do
Gielow Groom Terpstra & McEvoy is a boutique law firm that concentrates its practice on the representation of businesses, business owners and entrepreneurs. We offer broad experience in business, real estate, environmental, litigation, family law, estate planning and probate matters. We combine our experience and expertise with the most efficient technology, systems and staffing models to deliver timely and quality legal services at an affordable price. Our focus on specific areas of law enhances our expertise and eliminates a “learning curve” expense for our clients. We price our services so that our clients can afford to leverage our vast experience without fear of having their matters delegated to less-experienced associates.
Our members have varied backgrounds and specialties, but share a common vision for the practice of law. We believe that the traditional law firm model is broken. Today’s modern law firm must deliver rapid, relevant assistance without breaking the budget. That is why we borrowed from the manufacturing “lean” model and established our firm with a commitment to deliver outstanding legal service with reduced cost at the provider level. Our rates are, on average, much lower than the rates of our counterparts in larger law firms. And in light of our cost structure, we can be creative with our billing models.
What Sets Us Apart
We are tech-savvy lawyers, using computers, smart phones, iPads and cutting-edge programs to provide rapid responses to our clients’ needs. We are accessible to our clients after normal business hours and monitor emails when out of the office. We have modern trial presentation software for jury trials. We strive to have a paperless office, providing invoices online and “files” on CD or flash drive to our clients at the conclusion of their matters.
Due to our low-cost structure, we are happy to discuss alternative billing arrangements. Unlike most of our competitors, we understand the importance of the bottom line—yours, not ours. Our use of advanced technology minimizes overhead without compromising technical skill or experience, resulting in rates that are more reasonable than those of the traditional law firm.
