What We Do
Experienced in a variety of high-stakes legal matters, the attorneys of Taggart, Rimes & Graham, PLLC offer counsel and support to our clients on a surprisingly broad range of issues for a relatively small firm.
Our client-focused counsel, creative strategies and sound advice add significant value to clients with concerns in the areas of corporate law and transactions, real estate, family law, probate (wills and estates), personal and corporate defense, church and non-profit matters, and school law. And few firms offer the level of sophistication of our firm in matters arising out of governmental, political and elections law, from plowing through the bureaucracy, to working with decision-makers, to redistricting, to election contests.
Attorneys of the firm provide comprehensive packages of legal services, such as that customarily offered by in-house counsel, to small and medium-sized businesses that do not have in-house counsel. A flat annual retainer is charged for these services, payable monthly, that allows a business owner the freedom to pick up the phone and call, or ask one of our attorneys to come to his or her office, without being worried that the meter is ticking or that he will receive an invoice at the end of the month in an unanticipated – and unbudgeted – amount.
Examples of services provided in such arrangements include participation in and advice to meetings of boards of directors, participation in senior management meetings, providing advice on the setting of strategic goals of the business, regular telephone advice and contract review, and similar legal services. In essence, a business owner is able to retain one of our attorneys virtually as a member of his or her senior management team for purposes of addressing legal, regulatory and political concerns, without also having to provide a new office, secretary, support hardware and other related overhead that would be required for a full time employee.
Despite best efforts of businesses and individuals, it sometimes becomes necessary for disputes to be resolved through some resolution process. From informal mechanisms such as mediation efforts, to formal arbitration and full-blown litigation, our attorneys are prepared with the front-line experience and the intellectual tools to offer the highest possible level of protection of our clients’ interests.
Commercial and contract disputes, regulatory enforcement matters, divorce and child support issues, ownership challenges – the attorneys of Taggart, Rimes & Graham, PLLC have provided top-flight advocacy services across the spectrum. Far from the scorched earth strategies pursued by some, our firm guides clients through the maddening maze of dispute resolution with only one objective in mind: best serving our clients by rapidly moving matters so that our clients may get on with their businesses and their lives.
We also advise business owners as to litigation strategy, and oversee the handling of litigated files by attorneys assigned by a business owner’s insurance carrier in appropriate cases.
Our attorneys bring a range of life experiences to the law practice that is not often expected. Principals at Taggart, Rimes & Graham, PLLC have been engaged in manufacturing ownership, full-time church service, contract legislative lobbying, executive level management of multi-million dollar enterprises, staff support at the highest level of state government, service in local elected office and as legal counsel to public bodies. This extraordinary breadth of interest and ability is a great boon for clients of the firm. Our attorneys know from having been on the other side of the table what real solutions are.
Business people want answers, not equivocation. Real estate developers need movement on projects, not explanations of why things have ground to a halt. Parents must protect their children, not learn the intricacies of chancery court practice. Companies fighting bureaucracies want to be done with the government as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
If real solutions and not legal speak is what you are after, Taggart, Rimes & Graham, PLLC is ready to partner with you.
