Founder's Statement

Welcome to DJK Counsel. DJK Counsel is a boutique law firm in which the vast majority of a client’s business needs are addressed efficiently under the guidance of a single firm. You only need to make one call. Clients have the benefit of top-notch expertise, while at the same time having the advantage of the kind of personal service that only a supremely dedicated and efficient organization can provide.  This personal service extends to adding value to your matters by addressing their fundamental structure and strategy from the beginning, thus using inherent or created leverage to strike agreements satisfactory to all parties or, in contested matters, to obtain optimal results for the firm’s client.  This requires both the ability to see the big picture and strategize creatively as well as to attend to the small details and see every matter through to its successful conclusion. In this the firm excels. DJK Counsel, has no motive other than to serve the best interests of the client.  The best interest of the client is the best interest of the firm. DJK Counsel makes this a reality, not an empty platitude. On behalf of DJK Counsel, we look forward to working with you.
