Every client of Aherin, Rice & Anegon receives personal attention on every case, no matter the size, and receives 100% of the thoroughness and care they deserve. Because of the size of our firm, cases are resolved with the team effort of several members of our staff from investigators to trial attorneys, experienced in your type of case. When you ask us to represent you, you hire the entire firm, from our partners to our paralegals, secretaries and interns. Our results have proven that team effort is indispensable in providing the best service and, ultimately, maximum compensation for our clients. Each case is unique. Before any decision to settle or litigate is made, we will personally meet with you to discuss and finalize all major decisions regarding your case. You will never be pressured to settle until you are ready. We listen to our clients and their wishes and we pledge to provide each client with all available options.
The attorneys at Aherin, Rice & Anegon have chosen to keep the firm small in order to continue to provide a high level of personal attention, service and contact with all clients who come to us. Our size is small, but our commitment to deliver the highest quality and most effective legal representation to our clients is unparalleled. In no event will a client's case be "passed down" to a less experienced junior attorney as frequently happens in large firms.
Providing support and assistance to the firm's attorneys are seven professional staff members, which include legal assistants and legal secretaries. The Firm also employs a varying number of legal interns to assist the attorneys in research projects. We are fortunate to have two excellent legal training resources in our area. Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston provides top quality legal secretary and paralegal programs and the majority of our support staff have graduated from one or both of these programs. The University of Idaho Law School is located 30 miles north of Lewiston in Moscow, Idaho, providing us access to high quality interns. Responsibility and accountability are key traits expected from each and every member of our firm.
We recognize that when potential clients contact our office, they often have never been to an attorney before and are not totally comfortable with the prospect of hiring an attorney and proceeding through the complicated process of litigation. Additionally, the circumstances which make it necessary for our clients to first come to us are often extremely personal and stressful. Each member of our firm is trained to put new clients at ease and to make them feel comfortable while getting the necessary information in order to determine if we will be able to assist you. Each case is assigned to a specific secretary/legal assistant so there is always someone other than the attorney who is familiar with your case and able to assist you if the attorney is unavailable. We never mind answering your questions; the more educated a client becomes, the better able we are to serve the client's needs. We enjoy what we do and we are dedicated to doing it with passion, honor and excellence.
Our commitment to our clients does not stop with individual families; it extends to the communities in which we all live. The attorneys at Aherin, Rice & Anegon do not just work and live in this area, they teach in local schools, serve on the boards of and represent local charities, provide speakers to local civic groups and coach local teams. They also teach young lawyers how to honor their oath as counselors at law by lecturing for professional organizations and authoring educational materials. Aherin, Rice & Anegon is committed to giving back to our surrounding communities and stands ready to assist whenever the need arises.
The law firm you choose does make a difference. Aherin, Rice & Anegon will fight hard for you. Our reputation depends on it.
