HOW WE DO IT

1. WE LISTEN

Not all clients share the same goals when working to resolve an estate or mental capacity dispute. For some clients, it is critical to resolve the matter in a way that preserves family relationships. For others, resolving the matter quickly and decisively will be the paramount goal. Some are motivated to protect their family’s privacy; others are focused on cost efficiency. We listen carefully to your needs and then tailor our solutions to your goals.

2. WE COMMUNICATE

We see it as our job to help clients navigate a legal system that may be unfamiliar and confusing. For many of our clients, their estate dispute will be their first encounter with the courts and legal process. Our goal is to provide our clients with the information they need about their rights and obligations so that they can make informed choices about their legal options.

3. WE COMMIT

At Casey & Moss LLP, our sole focus is estate, trust and mental capacity law. That’s because we have dedicated our professional careers to helping people who are affected by the legal ramifications of dementia, death, and dying. And we are passionate about our role as advocates.

4. WE ARE KNOWLEDGE LEADERS

Casey & Moss LLP’s lawyers frequently speak and write about estate, trust and capacity law. We stay on top of new legal developments and share our specialized knowledge with others. Please call us if you think your organization would benefit from learning about topics like preventing financial abuse of seniors, powers of attorney, protecting yourself as an executor, or any other topic relating to estate and mental capacity law. We would be happy to put together a customized learning program.

5. WE INNOVATE

We are building a new kind of law firm. With decades of combined experience gained from both large Bay Street and boutique firm environments, we’ve earned a reputation for doing excellent work. Our mission at Casey & Moss LLP is to continue producing first-rate work while meeting our clients’ budgets. Whether they are institutional clients or individuals who have never hired a lawyer before, we know our clients work hard for their money. They deserve predictable legal fees that are proportionate to what’s at stake. We share this goal. That’s why we’ve designed creative systems and technology that allow us to provide excellent client service and work product – at fair prices.
