“Suits Optional; Talent Required.” It’s become our informal motto, but what does it mean for you?
At Mincher Koeman, we believe in a different model for a family law firm. Family law is unlike most other areas of law; at its root, it is about people. It is about helping people navigate through one of the most difficult, and emotionally challenging times in their lives. Clients don’t need a two thousand dollar suit – they need someone who understands what they are going through; someone who is there to help them when they need it, not just during working hours. They need a person, not a suit.
That is what you get when you retain Mincher Koeman. When you come in to meet us, you will see our informal approach. However, what you are retaining is a hard-working team of smart and talented people to stand side by side with you.
You have chosen a team who believes in doing things differently. From the moment you retain us you become part of our family, supported and guided through one of the most challenging times in your life by a group of people who are wholly committed to you.
In fact, when you visit us you will see our team commitment to you posted on the wall of our office – a clear statement of our belief and how we practice law;
Our clients are the most important person in our business. They are not dependant on us, we are dependent on them. They are not an outsider in our business – they are part of our business. We are not doing our clients a favour by assisting them – they are doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to work on their behalf.
The client is not difficult, the client is emotional because their lives are changing and they are putting their trust in us by retaining us to guide them through this challenging time.
When you retain a member of Team MK you retain an entire team of talented people – from our receptionist to our partners.
Every step we have taken has been to create and foster a casual and safe atmosphere in the office. We understand that these little details that can assist our clients during this often overwhelming process. We are not here to intimidate or make the process more stressful, as your Lawyers, we are here to listen, help and counsel. We aim to provide a comforting environment at a time when your life is being turned upside down. We even have a child friendly interview room if you have young children who need to be come with you to our offices.
At Team MK we believe in working hard for our clients. We work together as a team with our clients to provide emergency assistance if its needed ensuring we can adapt to your every need and request in a cost-effective manner while using the most up to date technology available. We believe in providing smart and tactical counsel to our clients; we will provide practical and cost-effective advice to ensure you are able to emerge from the process as swiftly as possible and with your dignity and wallet intact.
Further, we have strong relationships with a number of third party resources to assist you should you need that additional level of support on your matter. Should you need that assistance on your matter, we will guide you to these services in the city such as counsellors, social workers, psychologists, or accountants and business valuators.
We also take the time to consider and explain which processes best suit your particular needs taking into account all the circumstances of your case. For some client that will be mediation, for others litigation can be the only option. We understand that one size does not fit all.
As a team we show up when required and advocate for our clients, whichever forum is used.
And as a team, we’ve always got your back.
