LASH & Associates strive to build and maintain solid professional working relationships with plaintiff and defense attorney clients.  To that end, we believe a positive relationship begins with a clear understanding of the attorney's needs, desired services, clear deadlines and budget.


We utilize letter agreements to clearly define mutual expectations and accountabilities.  We work on a retainer system, and will not exceed budgeted hours without prior approval by the attorney.  


LASH & Associates work diligently to provide quality work products and services.  We stand by our work and offer a risk-free guarantee.  In the unlikely event that a work product does not meet the attorney's satisfaction, LASH & Associates will rework the ORIGINAL assignment (within a reasonable number of hours) at no additional charge to the attorney.


LASH & Associates' primary goal is to assist plaintiff and defense attorneys to achieve desired outcomes for their

clients.
