Michael Accurso believes that the key to running a successful law practice is individualized attention to each client and case. Typically initial meetings are held in person to ascertain specific fact patterns of the case and analyze them for legal defenses that may be successful at trial. Conversations are frequently held to determine the client’s goals, expectations, and objectives throughout the case and counsel the client regarding what is reasonable to expect for a disposition. Throughout the period of representation, every effort is made to return everyone’s telephone call by the end of everyday. While the demands of criminal cases are common and usual for him, they are usually the most important thing in your life at the time and always on the forefront of your thoughts. With that understanding, we take time to address all of your reasonable expectations and goals, to listen, and see your case through as diligently and competently as can be expected.
