How many years have you been in business?1
What are some features that make your business unique?
We practice in the areas of real estate, family law, land use and estate planning. We visit clients at any place that is convenient for them and provide quality legal representation at an affordable cost.
Give us a brief history of your business: Since opening in January 2016, our attorneys have completed over a thousand residential real estate refinance closings throughout the entire state of Connecticut. We also dedicate time to represent indigent parents and children involved with the Department of Children and Families in Connecticut. We draft wills, provide mediation in various areas of law, and help resolve land use matters.
What is the most exciting news your business has had in the last year? Starting off with two part time attorneys last year, our firm has grown to now have three full time attorneys and one part time attorney. We treat each attorney as a member of our Legal Advocates family by providing benefits and creating a flexible work schedule. Attorneys who are satisfied with where they work will strive to satisfy their clients. We have a 100% satisfaction rating from those who have been surveyed and we will continue to work hard for those who depend on us.
Share some unique facts and business history:
With the ability to schedule clients outside of traditional business hours, Legal Advocates, LLC attorneys stand out from many other law firms! Our attorneys are available via e-mail, text or phone call to set up an appointment and no one is ever transferred to a paralegal or legal assistant to do so! If we can not resolve your legal issue, we will provide you with the contact information of another attorney who can. When you call our law office, you will be able to speak to an attorney every time. No hassles, no gimmicks and no paralegal providing you legal advice! Free consultations are available.
What do you see for the future of your business?
Legal Advocates, LLC provides services to clients throughout the entire state and hopes to open offices in areas outside of Rocky Hill in the future. Virtual locations are available throughout the state. We are continuously looking for opportunities to help our community as well as neighboring communities achieve their legal goals.
What makes your business stand out? Our business model is different because of our unique scheduling process that allows our attorneys to meet clients anywhere at any time of the day. We work Mondays to Saturdays and after 5pm when other law offices are closed. We understand that our clients have demanding work schedules and we try to make appointments adapt to their busy lives.
What do you think differentiates you from your competitors? Legal Advocates, LLC started with caring within our practice before offering services on the outside. We care about our employees as well as our clients. We listen to our employees to make sure they have everything they need for their themselves, their families and for our clients.
What products or services do you offer companies or individuals?
We offer legal services in the areas of real estate (purchase/sale closings, refinance closings), family law (mediation services, divorce, custody issues), land use (permits, variances, zone changes) and probate services (will drafting, creating a trust). The services mentioned above are examples, so please call us to determine if we can help you in one of these areas of law.
What are the greatest obstacles and/or challenges that your business has faced?
Our greatest obstacle is being unable to reach the entire Rocky Hill community to let everyone know that there is a small law firm nearby that cares about our clients and is here to help. We are working on networking as well as becoming a more active member of the Rocky Hill Chamber of Commerce!
What accomplishments are you most proud of?
We are most proud when we have clients who are satisfied with the legal services we offer. We try our best to keep our clients continuously informed from the beginning of their legal issue to when it's resolved.
Why are you a member of the Rocky HIll Chamber of Commerce?
As a member, we hope to grow our business and enable other businesses and individuals to grow as well by offering quality legal services.
Do you have a favorite place, event or thing to do in Rocky Hill?
We love to try out different restaurants in the area for lunch and take our clients to as well.
Why do you think Rocky Hill is a great place to do business?
Rocky Hill is minutes away from Hartford but offers the same or even better food and parking arrangements. We are happy to be a part of the Rocky Hill community as it is convenient for our clients and provides access to major highways for us to visit clients who are further away.
