ICKES\HOLT is a mobile law firm. We conduct our business & cases on the go. ICKES\HOLT utilizes technology to represent you in the most responsive and efficient ways possible. We replaced our landline with an Internet based virtual phone system. This allows you to direct dial your attorney without having to get through a “gatekeeper.” Also, it allows us to “un-tether” from our desks. That is, we don’t have to be in the office to receive your call. When you call, we will answer if available. If we can’t answer, we receive an email on our mobile device with your voicemail. We use smartphone apps for mobile billing and email, which allows us to easily handle administrative chores outside of the office which creates more office time to work on your case. We use laptops and Cloud storage so we don’t have to be sitting at our desk to access important email and documents or to work on your case.
As information security and privacy professionals, we not only understand privacy and security, we value your confidence in our ability to protect your privacy. That is why we send privileged or sensitive information via encrypted email. We keep your paper case file to a minimum to prevent duplicated information. We never share your personally identifiable information, or any information, with anyone unless you provide consent. We will aggressively defend your right to protect personal information no matter the context of your case.
Ickes Holt will give you an opinion of your case during our initial consultation. We will give you our best analysis of your case based on the information you provide. If we need more information, we will tell you. We won’t make you hire us to “explore” the case more fully. If we don’t think you have a case, we’ll tell you. We won’t take a case we don’t believe in just to earn a paycheck. That’s not fair to us or to our clients. Our clients and cases reflect on our team and our business. We want good cases and good clients. You can’t get good resolutions to cases that have bad facts and bad law.
All legal matters, whether litigation, business transaction, or estate planning, should have a beginning, middle, and most definitely an end. While the length of any legal matter is often determined by outside forces (like the courts or the opposing party), a lawyer’s primary job should be to reach as positive an outcome as possible, as quickly as possible. Ickes Holt will always be clear about projecting the anticipated timeline of a legal matter, as well as the status of a pending matter. We can’t predict everything that will happen in your case, or how long it will take. But we can give you an opinion of how things will proceed based on our experience. Clients are entitled to know how their matter is proceeding and what to expect in the future. Our team is always available to talk. After all, it is your legal matter.
We think so. That is why the attorneys at Ickes Holt strive for unparalleled levels of professionalism, integrity, compassion, and sincerity. We believe that as lawyers, we need to earn your trust. Trust does not magically happen when you hire us. In fact, many people inherently don’t trust the lawyer they just hired. To us, that is a shame, and we work hard every day to earn our client’s trust.
Ickes Holt is a team. Unlike many small law firms, we aren’t a collection of lawyers doing their own things and sharing an office. We work on cases together. We believe that our collective intelligence and experience is far greater than our individual talents. We also believe that collaboration is the best means to solve problems. Our office and business model are intended to foster collaboration. This teamwork also greatly enhances Ickes Holt’s ability to exceed client expectations in two traditional “problem” areas for lawyers: coverage and communication.
