Kalamarides & Lambert is devoted to providing the highest quality legal representation for individuals affected by illegal conduct, those who are injured in the workplace, and those who suffer a personal injury throughout the state of Alaska. The following principles are intended to guide our practice and provide our clients with an understanding of the values that drive our focus on expertise, commitment and results:
Our primary goal in representing our clients is to assist them in every way possible to best recover from the circumstances they have experienced.
The merits of the case and our experience with relevant issues are the primary focus in the intake decision process. Our clients know that their case will be vigorously fought by an expert advocate who possesses decades of experience handling the issues that may arise in their case.
Our representation will involve identifying the legal issues, an exhaustive investigation into the facts that support your case, and an assessment of the relative strengths of the case. This investigation will focus on securing all available information and witnesses.
The law firm of Kalamarides & Lambert distinguishes itself from other firms by the quality of its work. Attorneys with Kalamarides & Lambert possess excellent legal analysis, legal writing, communication, oral advocacy and trial skills.
The law firm of Kalamarides & Lambert cannot meet these high standards of advocacy without each client taking an active role in his or her case. Our clients are expected to work closely with us to identify and develop all facts necessary to assist in the representation of the case. The key to this approach is open and active communication with our clients. Our clients will promptly be informed of all developments in their case at all times, and will have full understanding of all the steps we are taking in their representation. Client calls will be returned promptly (almost always within the same day), and time will always be devoted to fully explaining developments in the case and answering all questions.
The law firm of Kalamarides & Lambert never loses sight of the reason we are in this difficult business – to serve our clients by having our representation leave them in a better place than they were in when they retained our services. We ask only that our clients are realistic in their expectations and listen carefully to our advice. The final decision, however, about whether and when to settle a case, and on what terms, is the client’s alone. All of our clients know they have an advocate who is committed to pursuing their rights through all aspects of litigation, if necessary.
All of our employees truly enjoy coming to work, getting to know each other personally as well as professionally, and treating each other with respect at all times. The ability to find humor in our work, and to share it from our personal lives, is truly valued and encouraged. When conflicts arise we address them promptly, openly and constructively. This approach extends to our relationships with opposing counsel, co-counsel, and, most importantly, our clients. We will always seek to avoid personalizing the disputes that are part of our adversarial system, and expect to conclude every representation with strong and professional relationship with all parties and counsel involved. Our goal is to become a trusted friend and advisor to our clients, as well as a vigorous advocate.
