PLEDGE TO CLIENTS
To follow the Canons of Ethics in Ethical Rule 1.3 of the Ethical Rules for Attorneys in Arizona: A lawyer shall act with reasonable diligence and promptness in representing clients. This pledge means the attorney shall not only be diligent and timely for current clients but shall recognize that a lawyer’s work load must be controlled so that each matter can be handled competently.
A client’s interests can be adversely affected by the passage of time or the change of conditions, and in extreme instances, as when a lawyer overlooks a statute of limitations the client’s legal position may be destroyed. Even when the client’s interests are not affected in substance, however, unreasonable delay can cause a client needless anxiety and undermine confidence in the lawyer’s trustworthiness.
The Virtue Law firm pledges not to accept a new case that could cause current client legal work to be jeopardized for lack of attorney time.
The Virtue Law Firm pledges the client case load shall always be controlled so the attorney has the time to put forth best efforts to meet every client’s goals, timely return every client’s call and to keep every client
The Virtue Law Firm pledges if the attorney is unable to represent your interests pursuant to the dictates of this pledge and in compliance with Ethical Rule 1.3 you will be so advised and the attorney shall graciously provide to you the name or names of other law firms for your consideration in finding a law firm to consider your case or other needed legal work.
