Overview

Rising to the Challenge

When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans in August 2005, the partners of Krebs Farley already had a plan in place and were putting it into action.  With the heroic assistance of several key staff members, they quickly backed up all client and litigation files, relocated their team to the firm’s Jackson, Mississippi office, arranged housing for everyone, and worked to ensure there would be no interruption in payroll.  Due to their advance planning and swift action, the firm was able to continue serving its clients without missing a beat until returning to New Orleans the following January.

Focusing on the Best Solutions

This is the kind of problem solving that the attorneys of Krebs Farley routinely employ.  What are the relevant issues? How can we anticipate and best prepare for them?  How can we resolve them effectively and efficiently?

We develop solutions to the most complex issues.  We understand the importance of prompt, correct, and concise responses; foreseeing and accounting for future contingencies in contract drafting; resolving disputes that can be amicably resolved; and positioning those matters that cannot be settled for a successful outcome in litigation.  We do this while remaining cognizant that litigation often impacts business considerations beyond the case at hand.  We also work closely with our clients to develop and operate within a litigation budget.  Whether it be in negotiation, in mediation, in arbitration, in trial or on appeal, the attorneys of Krebs Farley seek pragmatic solutions for their clients.

Being There

Client service means more to us than just returning a phone call.  It’s about putting the clients’ needs first, and not only responding to their concerns, but anticipating them.  The extraordinarily dedicated people of Krebs Farley provide that level of service.  It’s because of these people that we came together in a time of disaster and successfully kept the firm running and serving our clients.  And it’s because of them that we’ll continue that mission long into the future.
