We are proud to have provided legal representation since the firm’s founding in 1982. While our clients appreciate the results we achieve, the way we achieve those results is equally important to them. We don’t just respond to a client’s needs. We anticipate them. Because we work hard to understand each client’s business, industry, and unique situations, we can be more proactive about protecting their interests. Because we are committed to frequent communication and ready accessibility, we can obtain client input quickly and move forward in an expeditious manner. Because we embrace the highest standards of professionalism and integrity, we can be trusted to do the right thing for every client. The Team Approach In other law firms throughout the country, your attorney is assigned by default - it’s simply an attorney who had time to fit your case into his or her schedule. At Albright, Yee & Schmit, your attorney is assigned on the basis of knowledge and expertise - so you get the very best person for the job. To help your attorney make more efficient use of time, we assemble a support team of additional attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries. Even if your attorney is out of the office on another matter, there is always someone here who is familiar with your situation and can assist you. Albright, Yee & Schmit is a reputable firm proudly producing the work product and experience of a large firm combined with the accessibility and intimate values of a small firm. Efficiency Experts The regulation of legal costs is a top priority at Albright, Yee & Schmit. One of the many tremendous benefits of working with our firm is the cost of legal representation. There is no denying that legal services today are costly, particularly in complex matters or in matters representing a substantial financial risk to the client. Our hourly rates are significantly lower than those of comparable larger firms, and our substantial investment in modern computerization and technology further helps reduce the amount of actual attorney time spent and allows us to deliver outstanding results during every phase of litigation. We believe in constantly striving to deliver quality services and favorable outcomes efficiently and economically. Our operating philosophy is rooted in respect. We respect our clients enough to make them full partners in the legal process - keeping them informed and inviting their participation every step of the way. We feel this is a better way to build and maintain an effective working relationship. We are happy to say that our clients agree.

This specialization enables us to maintain expertise in rapidly evolving and complex areas of the law and to ensure that each client’s legal work is handled by the attorney best suited to deal with a specific matter.
