The Prinz Law Office’s philosophy on the staffing of client matters is unique from other Bay Area law firms, which routinely staff client matters with junior-level attorneys and charge clients for the training and supervision of their inexperienced new hires. Unlike our Bay Area counterparts, we always staff client matters with highly skilled, senior-level representation, and the attorney managing your relationship will also directly handle all of your work. Thus, when you retain The Prinz Law Office, you can always be confident that you are retaining the expertise of a very experienced, high caliber attorney.
