Business Insights

Total Client Service™

William Beckwith's clients have ranged from indigent persons to Fortune 100 companies. In addition to sound legal analytics, ALP has the judgment and knowledge to adroitly synthesize and balance a broad array of economic, political, social, ethical, and other factors when pressing to achieve clients' interests. At the same time, the ALP attorney recognizes that there is no substitute for old fashioned hard work. ALP clients appreciate the ALP attorney's ability to communicate fairly complex financial, tax, and legal issues in everyday plain language. The ALP counselor approaches client service in a circumspect and holistic manner but always keeps focus on the core issues that are important to clients. ALP recognizes that value is added primarily by actively listening to clients so that the most pertinent information and options can be explored.
