Case Management Philosophy


Corbet, Shaw, Essad, Tucciarone & Bonasso places great importance on clear and
thorough client communication. Clients are kept informed at every stage of a case
and are active participants in any action the firm takes on their behalf.

One attorney has primary responsibility for each case, unless another arrangement
has been made with the client. Other attorneys will be used if scheduling conflicts
occur, and the client will be advised in advance if such conflicts arise.

Research is a necessary part of each case. We will always obtain client approval
before undertaking large research projects. If we are able to use research from
other cases (whether for the same or a different client), we will not charge for the
time incurred for the prior research.

We will provide a fair, accurate, timely and easily understood statement for services
provided and for the costs incurred on behalf of a client.

Billing
Clients who choose traditional time billing are billed only for the actual amount of time spent on each project, calculated in tenths of an hour. There is no "unit billing" for services.

It is the firm's experience that some litigation cases share common elements. To the
extent that the firm can utilize work product from one case for another, the client will
benefit from work already done and a lower overall cost.

Our statements include a detailed description of the work performed on each project,
the date the work was performed, the daily time spent on each project, and who
performed the work.

The firm also offers various fee billing arrangements, as alternatives to traditional time billings, which are developed in concert with the needs of our clients.

Litigation Costs
Expenses incurred on behalf of clients will be charged at their actual cost. Unless
arranged otherwise, the statements received will be forwarded to the client for
direct payment.

Corbet, Shaw, Essad, Tucciarone & Bonasso makes every effort to keep costs and
fees as low as possible. To the extent that any cost or fee can be minimized, the
savings are passed on to clients.
