Client Testimonials

Craig has assisted me with starting and selling a small business, estate planning, employment agreements, and residential home sales. In all matters, Craig is professional, prompt, accurate and makes the situation understandable to a non-legal oriented person. He has been invaluable over the past few years in a variety of situations and it's great to know he's available anytime when something legal in nature comes up. Highly recommended.

We have gone to Pierson & Strachan for Real Estate, Wills & Trust planning, and walking us through the 'what do we do now' questions related to having an adult child. He is professional and knowledgeable, but is just as comfortable explaining legal terms in easy to understand and practical terms. Highly recommend Craig and his team!

Craig recently helped my husband and I with estate planning, and shortly thereafter I called on Craig to create an employment contract for a new hire. Both were handled professionally and promptly, and Craig was great to work with. He was available for phone calls and meetings, and responded quickly to my emails. I highly recommend the services of Pierson and Strachan.

We could not be happier with the services we received from Pierson & Strachan. Working with Craig was seamless. He is extremely professional, efficient and was always available to answer our questions. We highly recommend working with Craig.

Craig is exceptional and a pleasure to work with. We trust him implicitly with our family and professional affairs. His honest, professional, warm work ethic is outstanding - so happy to have him in our lives!

Craig made our house closing experience seamless and effortless. He was always on top of what needed to be done and explained the process with ease. We would highly recommend using Craig for any legal needs.

Our Approach to Billing

At Pierson & Strachan, we believe that open communication with our clients is imperative to establishing trust and working together effectively. We know that engaging an attorney is a leap of faith. This is particularly true when it comes to billing and costs. Without proper communication from the beginning of the relationship, clients may not have any idea what legal services cost until they receive their first bill.

Of course, some situations require more customized services, which may be charged at an hourly rate. In most of those cases, we will offer a quote before we begin our work. We will request a retainer in advance, and the remainder of your fee will be due when the work is complete.
That’s it. We find that this approach is the fairest for our clients, facilitates communication between attorneys and clients, and helps us streamline our own work to complete projects efficiently and with the highest degree of quality.
