Our Team

Prime Law Group, LLC is truly a team of lawyers and staff. Our collaborative approach often takes the form of cooperation to share past experiences and develop creative approaches to new issues. This team approach has the additional advantage that if a new issue suddenly arises or an existing project becomes a top client priority, we can quickly assign additional lawyers who will already have the background necessary to tackle the problem at full speed.

We believe the best results come from working closely with our clients. We start by learning about their business, their goals, and the issues at hand. We work together to identify short and long term issues.

From time to time, our team extends beyond the firm to include other disciplines such as accountants, brokers, surveyors, bankers, engineers and appraisers to understand complex issues that we may be addressing. We are also experienced at integrating into a client’s existing team of experts.  Our integration extends beyond that of business and financial, but also into medical experts.  Our personal injury practice also calls upon medical personnel like doctors, physical therapists and other medical specialists. 

Tackling complex issues also involves working with attorneys who concentrate in other areas of practice, including in-house counsel. We take a long term view of our clients’ issues providing solutions not just for today, but for the future.
