Most people don't like large law firms because they are too impersonal.

The Best Defense Is a Good Offense
Many attorneys let their staff do the majority of their casework. At Jacek W. Lentz's law office, he takes a hands on approach. He believes it is his job to discover information others may have missed. He takes the initiative and goes on the offensive from the very beginning in an attempt to create the most aggressive and accurate defense possible.
The legal process starts the minute you are arrested and taken into custody. It does not end until the final sentencing or the dismissal of your case. The law enforcement agency that performed the arrest has to meet with prosecutors to determine what charges will be filed, if any, and what bail may be required.
During the “pre-filing” period, getting to the bottom of the story is extremely important. It allows everyone involved to see what may have been left out of a police officer's arrest report. In some cases, providing the right type of information to the prosecutor at this particular time, may help them to decide to drop the case. If there is a possibility that an attorney can help avoid the filing of charges, the opportunity must be taken. In the long run, it can prevent a lengthy trial and long lasting legal nightmare.
