A PERSONAL NOTE:
Drake Law Firm, PLLC is my vision of what a law firm should bring to its clients: sophisticated legal services at the local level, a fair fee, direct contact with the preferred lawyer, and excellent communication.
For more than 29 years, I’ve represented business owners, entrepreneurs, and a variety of other clients in corporate, financing, real estate development and foreclosure avoidance matters. For nearly two decades of that time, I served as an equity partner in large, national and regional law firms where I honed my people skills and technical skills. It was a cherished career path giving me the high-level depth and breadth of experience that I couldn’t have imagined when I first decided to pursue law; however, I always wanted to be closer to my family and home, and to my clients.
My past experience in other firms revealed clients’ frequent perception of being charged inordinate fees while having to work with “assigned” or junior attorneys, rather than the sought-after lawyer they thought they had hired. Sporadic and inadequate communication with clients was the norm.
I am proud of my law firm! I love working with my clients, some of whom I’ve worked with for over two decades. If you believe my firm, my approach to serving my client’s needs, and my firm’s team of professionals would be a good fit for your legal needs, I’d love to hear from you and discuss what’s on your mind.
