Long before the economy took its downward spin, the Ishman Law Firm has been providing exceptional legal services to its clientele at a fair price. We have been able to do this for two reasons:
(1) whenever reasonably possible, we provide our legal services to our clients under a flat fee or other cost-effective fee arrangement; and
(2) we have minimal overhead expenses in operating our law firm. We are able to keep our overhead expenses low because our attorneys work primary from their home offices, and meet routinely with our clients via email, conference calls, or at their offices.
When appropriate, we will also take our clients out for a meal to discuss their legal needs. By operating our law firm under this format, we are able to pass down our savings to our clientele under our cost-effective fee arrangements. We are able to attract top quality attorneys to our law firm because our attorneys work on matters that they choose and they are not required to meet ridiculous billable hour requirements. This arrangement means that you do not have to pay to have an attorney trained to work on your legal matter, or have your attorney invoice you for one-tenth of an hour for answering your question that you sent via email. Additionally, we never want to put a barrier of any kind in between us and our clients. In this regard, our clients are never expected to pay for telephone calls with our attorneys that take less than 15 minutes in duration. This approach results with us having more direct communications with our clients, where we are able to provide valuable and timely advice and counsel to them. Overall, this philosophy results in our law firm having strong and long-standing relationships with our clients, where time shows a history of our law firm guiding our clients successfully through their legal landmines. If you would like to do business with a law firm with this philosophy, then please contact the Ishman Law Firm via email (mishman @ ishmanlaw.com) or telephone at (919) 468-3266 to schedule a free initial telephone consultation.

Banking & Investment Lawyers: Despite a changing economy, investment banking and law remain popular career paths for ambitious young people. Both careers offer the chance to make a lot of money right out of school. Moreover, prestige and upward mobility, two additional defining characteristics, attract the best and brightest into both investment banking and law.
Bankruptcy Lawyers: Bankruptcy law provides for the development of a plan that allows a debtor, who is unable to pay his creditors, to resolve his debts through the division of his assets among his creditors.The philosophy behind the law is to allow the debtor to make a fresh start, not to be punished for inability to pay debts. Bankruptcy law allows certain debtors to be discharged of the financial obligations they have accumulated, after their assets are distributed, even if their debts have not been paid in full. Some bankruptcy proceedings allow a debtor to stay in business and use business income to pay his or her debts.
Business Services Lawyers: Examples are: Former, current, or prospective employees suing on the grounds of discrimination in hiring, firing, or hostile work environment. Local, state, or federal government entities filing complaints or investigating your business for violation of any laws. You want to make a "special allocation" of profits and losses or you want to contribute appreciated property to your partnership or LLC agreement. An environmental issue arises and your business is involved (even if your business didn't cause the environmental problem, you may be penalized). Negotiating for the sale or your company or for the acquisition of another company or its assets.
Civil Law Attorneys: Many states in the world have comprehensive legal systems called civil law jurisdictions, largely inspired by Roman law, the primary feature of which was that laws were written into a collection; codified, and not determined, as is common law, by judges. Germany and France sustained the bridge between Roman law and civil law (old French law book cover pictured). Civil law jurisdictions purport to provide all citizens with an accessible and written collection of the laws which apply to them and which judges must follow.
Computers & Technology Lawyers: Computers and related information technologies are used in virtually every facet of industrial, commercial, and personal activity. From handheld personal data devices and cellular phones, to desktop and portable computers, businesses deal daily with technology issues. Whether you are a software or hardware end-user or a software developer or distributor, we offer the knowledge and industry experience to provide top-level representation in all aspects of information technology transactions and to protect your technology-related assets. We focus on developing proper document retention policies and protecting sensitive information for the end-user. And for developers, we draft and negotiate service and software agreements, and have significant experience in enforcing those agreements.
Consumer Protection Lawyers: Consumer protection is linked to the idea of consumer rights, and to the formation of consumer organizations, which help consumers make better choices in the marketplace and get help with consumer complaints. Other organizations that promote consumer protection include government organizations and self-regulating business organizations such as consumer protection agencies and organizations, ombudsmen, the Federal Trade Commission in America, and Better Business Bureaus in America and Canada, etc.
Corporate Business Lawyers: A corporate lawyer is also known as In-House Counsel, Staff Attorney, Deputy General Counsel, General Counsel and Chief Legal Officer. Their primary objective is to serve the interests of the corporation, not the owners of the business or the officers who run it. In addition to legal counsel, they may also be called upon to provide business advice. They may practice other areas of law concerning mergers and acquisitions, trademarks, tax law bankruptcy, employment, securities, real estate or international commercial law.
