Firm Philosophy

Our Commitment to Access to Justice

At Law & Mediation Firm of Klueck & Hoppes, APC, we live by the principle “Access to Justice.” From a practical standpoint, we believe that all individuals should have access to the legal system, including access to highly-rated attorneys; it is our goal to ensure legal representation is not something limited to the affluent.

While we represent wealthy clients, the majority of our clients are hardworking, middle-class citizens. If you or a friend/relative/colleague have questions about a family law-related matter, do not hesitate to contact our office for help. We are committed to serving a diverse clientele and protecting the interests of both high-income and middle-class clients alike.

We strive to reply to client telephone calls and emails within one (1) business day.

How We Operate

All of our client relationships begin with a confidential consultation. During this initial consultation, potential clients are provided with information about California family law and are given the opportunity to voice any questions/concerns they may have. Part of the meeting time will be used to provide clients with handouts about family law, our practice, and their application to the potential case at hand. Clients can take these handouts with them to review in further detail after the meeting has concluded.

In most cases, we provide our clients with multiple options for retaining our firm. Doing so allows you, as the client, to determine what method of representation works best for your needs and budget.

How We Match Our Services to the Client’s Situation

Family law cases cannot be handled with a “one-size-fits-all” approach, which is why we offer personalized legal representation to every client we take on. In some cases, this may mean we take the case to court; in others, we may be able to act as advocates for our clients in mediation. Whether you need a warrior in the courtroom or an ally during settlement, we are here to help. Members of our team are professionally trained and experienced in all major alternatives to court, including:

Now that you know our philosophy, we encourage you to contact our office to schedule a consultation. We look forward to meeting with you about your case.
