Our commitment to our legal clients

We will work hard on your cases, be responsive to you, help advise your business (for our corporate clients) and will strive to maximize the monetary recovery in every case for our Plaintiff clients, (or to minimize your legal exposure if you are a Defendant in a arbitration or litigation case).  In short, we advocate for you, we turn over every rock, and we fight for every dime you are entitled to and do our best to promote and advance your corporate legal interests.

We have solid experience litigating in state and federal courts in California and Arizona, including adversary proceedings in bankruptcy courts and administrative hearings in real estate licensing broker accusation disputes. We have litigated against fortune 500 companies and their powerhouse law firms down to handling the smaller “mom and pop” type cases involving local businesses and the disputes that arise in every day business, whether big or small.

What makes us different from all the other law firms?

There are a lot of law firms you can choose from, we recognize that.  However, we think when you look closely at the details, there is only one choice for your corporate business law and civil litigation needs – VONDRAN LEGAL!

The top three things that make us better than the other firms:

1.  We believe in amazing customer service.  While most law firms will pay lip service to this, we truly believe that as attorneys you are paying us for legal advice, but to also be responsive and attentive to your needs as a client.  This means we TAKE your calls, or respond to them as QUICKLY as possible, and we cater to your needs as a client the best we can, and try to bring levity to what can sometimes be a stressful situation.  In fact, customer service will be something you will notice from the first instance that you contact our firm.  If you think this might be a case of empty rhetoric, contact us at the number below and discuss your case with our friendly staff.   We think the difference is obvious.  This is clearly not a stuffy old law firm where you get to pay for the expensive furniture.

2.  We are cognizant that legal bills MUST be affordable.  In this economy, there is no more room for the “cadillac law firms” of the 80′s.  We believe in keeping costs low, offering flexible legal fees, providing tangible benefits in the cases we work on, and in making the experience as stress-free as possible.  We are not in business to set you up for a shocking legal bill (often the product of “double billing” or even “triple billing” that some traditional law firms might do) which can then be followed by “sending you out to a collection firm” as some run their law office.  Clients deserve the best legal service and a fair and honest treatment.  Reflective of our attitudes in regard to providing accessible and affordable legal services can be found in our Zip Counsel legal services pilot project.  By using our skill and experience and streamlining a select menu of legal services, we are able to serve our clients in a variety of areas of the law, with a focus on business and real estate, at a low affordable legal fee.  At Vondran Legal, we seek to break old-fashioned molds and to innovate at every possible turn, much like your business has to be on the cutting edge and innovating in order to survive in a competitive marketplace.  We believe you will enjoy the synergies of working with a law firm that thinks like you do, strategically, and with an eye to the bottom line.

3.  We turn over every stone in an effort to win your case.  While many law firms state they will go the extra mile for you and will do anything to win, we take great pride in being thoroughly prepared in the cases we accept, but also being creative in business and civil litigation cases we accept (we are here to put our heads together to try to find a way to navigate your or your company through legal issues that need to be addressed), and we turn over every stone to help achieve your business and litigation objectives in each case.

While we believe there are many other reasons that Vondran Legal should earn your business and be your next corporate or litigation law firm, (ex. proven litigation track record in both state and federal courts and ability to provide clear and concise legal advice & negotiating skills), the choice is best left to you.  Contact us to discuss your business, arbitration, or litigation needs.
