Not Your Average Attorney:
My approach to representing a client is not conventional. I care deeply for the problems people face. I am a full service general practice law office in San Antonio, Texas that provides legal assistance for all types of matters. I assist clients all over Texas to resolve their legal matters. Please see my areas of practice tab to read in more detail the legal services that I offer. My goal is to provide clients with timely, responsive and cost effective legal services. My commitment is to provide you with real, honest, and helpful advice during your consultation. I strive to give my clients first class service, and their interests are my top priority.
The Difference I Am Committed To Making:
At the Law Offices of Sam R. Fugate II you will not be just another case. I am committed to each client, and have a deep understanding that your matter is unique to you. That is why I tailor every representation to what client asks of me. I work with the client to explore the benefits and consequences of every decision. I listen to your concerns and work with you to make sure you are as involved in the case as you would like to be. I take pride in my work and the relationships I form with my clients, here I treat each client like family.
An Aggressive, Proactive Approach to all Cases:
Some lawyers take a "wait-and-see" approach. I believe there is no time to waste, sitting by waiting for things to happen is not serving the client. By getting to work immediately, often I can locate favorable evidence and witnesses, and get a "head start" towards achieving the desired results. I understand the weight legal problems place on your shoulders and I know that you want these issues taken care of as soon as possible. Although I never guarantee a result I do work diligently to ensure that your case will not be drawn out any more than necessary.
Close Personal Contact with Your Attorney:
Facing legal issues can traumatize people. Nothing compounds the stress more than the inability to reach your attorney. At the Law Offices of Sam R. Fugate II, I put a premium on accessibility. I am here to provide moral and emotional support as well as legal representation. To do this, I observe two policies: First, every client phone call, email or text is returned the same day; and second, every client gets my personal cell phone number. Not only does this provide you the assurance of knowing you can reach me at critical times. It also helps me to do my job more effectively. I find that close client interaction is pivotal to my work. My clients are the best resource for understanding what happened and who the key players are in the case. I want to hear from you, and you'll definitely be hearing from me as together we map out the story and put together the best defense possible.
Fees and Payments:
When it comes to fees and payments, I strive to be flexible with my clients who are seeking legal representation. I offer payment arrangements, flat fee contracts, and traditional retainer agreements. I understand legal representation is necessary for all, and yet difficult for most to pay the fees all at once. Although I cannot guarantee that everyone will be able to hire me, I do promise to do what I can to make it possible.
