I am sympathetic to the demands upon employers.
As a long-term owner and manager of a law firm for nineteen years with ten employees, I understand the complexity, challenges and stress employers face on a daily basis.
I have felt your pain, and it is my passion to help relieve owners and managers of the risks, shortfalls, and missteps that occur when a business owner or manager is overwhelmed by too much to know and too much to do, particularly if he or she is trying to simultaneously manage a professional practice.
These companies often rely on entry-level consultants who are not trained in best practices but are instead focused on selling you a product.
Law firms with a focus on employment issues charge extraordinarily high hourly rates for their advice and drafting at every phase, sometimes at a standard ½ hour minimum for even a brief telephone call.
In addition, attorneys can be difficult to reach at critical junctures, when you need help here and now.
You need someone on your side and not a generic, non-customized approach utilized by large payroll human resource providers. You also need the flexibility which is made possible by working with an individual consultant, rather than a company and its inherent bureaucracy.
Human resource consulting companies, especially larger entities, are self-admittedly “glacially slow” in their responses to unique problems and opportunities. Further, the ‘cookie-cutter’ approach they typically utilize is often over-priced and not comprehensive or tailored to individual needs.
