Legal Notice


Choosing and retaining a lawyer who is right for you can be a difficult choice. Every law firm has its own philosophy and individual culture. Our firm, BUIE COHEN LLP identifies with the traditional values associated with the practice of law. We value and seek to create long term relationships with our clients ("The small town lawyer practicing in the large city").

This is reflected not only in the decor of our offices, but also with each individual working in our office. The concepts of openness, directness, honesty, respect, compassion and professionalism are valued and practiced on a daily basis.

Practicing law is fraught with responsibilities and we believe that one of our prime responsibilities is to provide you, our client, with a comfortable caring environment, to understand your legal issues and explain to you in a clear and understandable manner your various options and the related costs. In our firm, with over 50 years of knowledge and experience, it is your lawyer, not an assistant who will be dealing directly with you.
