Client Service & Education

From the inception of our law practice, the attorneys of Gibbs Giden Locher Turner Senet & Wittbrodt LLP (“Gibbs Giden”) have shared the philosophy of keeping the client’s interest paramount in every matter we handle.

At each juncture, we strive to define the goals of our representation, develop a realistic budget for the performance of our work, and regularly communicate with our clients to develop the most effective and economical strategies. Our attorneys can tailor each client service plan to include a customized legal education program to keep their staff and management up to date on legal issues affecting their operations.

Gibbs Giden hosts an annual Construction and Employment Law Review and Preview Seminar at the beginning of each calendar year. We review the past twelve months of legislation and case laws affecting the construction industry and preview the legal trends we see in our daily practice.
