About Us

Lawyers with Integrity

Our lawyers are all told on hire that The Ticktin Law Group endeavors to live up to the ideals of the new lawyers who first graduate from law school. Most law students had dreams of becoming a lawyer before they started law school. They never imagined the pressures on them to exaggerate billing, to have a witness lie, to get nasty to opposing counsel or a judge. Unfortunately, these dreams are often dashed by the realities of the real world in many law firms. We maintain a level of professionalism and the pride which goes with it where we are unfaltering, as any deviation from our norm would stand out with repugnance.

You need a law firm with the experience and know-how to devise creative solutions to your problems. A group of people who work diligently to make legal representation affordable. You need a lawyer that responds to your concerns and is attentive to your unique needs.

If that sounds like you, then we are the lawyers you want between you and your problems. Welcome to The Ticktin Law Group.

Our Three C’s: Creativity, Cost Effectiveness, and Communication

Over and above corporate work, contract drafting, legal advice, business litigation, and intellectual property, we also provide legal services for matters including wills, trusts, and estates, real estate closings, help for those facing the threat of foreclosure, bankruptcy, divorce, and personal injury. First, unlike the typical responsive approach, we are proactive. We first define your goals and then implement a plan to accomplish them. We treat each problem as an opportunity to find a creative solution.

Once we know our goals, we then develop a plan of action. Our lawyers are carefully chosen to ensure the right attitude, ability and accountability. We define accountability as “doing what was promised at the time that it was promised.” The Ticktin Law Group has put a great deal of thought into what makes the most ideal law firm – from a business’ and an individual’s point of view — and we are committed to living up to that level. Excellent legal advice and legal services are what we provide for all of our clients.

Results Through Creative Thinking

Our firm views each and every problem as an opportunity to find a creative solution. We believe creativity enables us to provide superior legal work. With this mantra, The Ticktin Law Group has remained on the cutting edge of the law since our founding.

Like our imaginative founder and senior partner Peter Ticktin, the cases we handle defy categorization. For more than two decades we have set legal precedent defending victims of HIV discrimination, monkey-bites and illegal removal of vital organs. During the mortgage foreclosure crisis, our creative thinking unearthed a national scandal that helped hundreds of homeowners defeat the banks.

We understand the importance of creativity. Our firm lives by it.

Keeping Your Costs to a Minimum

Our goal is to provide clients with the best service possible. That means ensuring it is easy and representation is attainable and affordable.

Our firm is continually re-inventing itself to improve our processes and make legal service available in a cost-efficient manner. This requires an atmosphere and culture which puts the clients first, before the interests of the lawyers. We accomplish this by utilizing technology as fully as possible, while making it a point to encourage and reward the right attributes in our lawyers.

Our interests are aligned with those of our clients. This culture not only causes direct motivation to succeed, but it causes a secondary benefit, in that our office is one where the attorneys actually work together in peace and harmony.

While most law firms reward those lawyers with the highest number of hours billed, we reward our lawyers for winning their cases. We never ever reward an attorney or castigate one based on the number of hours billed. We do not see a 60 hour per week lawyer as more valuable and therefore in a position to speak down to a 40 hour per week lawyer. It just never happens here.

Client-First Communication

Communication is a two-way street. As our client, you deserve to be in the loop with the status or your legal situation. This means that we return telephone calls. It is typical in law offices that attorneys are sometimes awful at returning telephone calls. This is natural, as they are running to court, depositions, hospitals, meetings, etc. and they are often away from their computers.

To counter this, we put systems in place to assure that the attorneys return calls. Also, we have other systems which help. For instance, whenever a document is filed in court by either side, or a letter is sent or received in your case, a copy goes to the client by email. Here at The Ticktin Law Group, our attorneys place prime importance on contact with our clients. This is vital.
