I think what differentiates us is the depth of the individuals at the firm. There are attorneys here that have been doing this for 35, 40 years. So it's an immense, you know, pool of people that we're really pulling from. They've been on all areas of the state bar. They've been on all the legislative committees. They've structured what the law is. I've been before the Supreme Court of the United States on matrimonial issues. So has my partner, Ed. So there's just constant resources that we can go to in order to come up with the right presentation of the specific issues in our case.
So based on where our clientele was generally driven from, we pooled our resources in order to isolate and make specific offices in order to get a very good, strong foothold in the county. We did that so that we, you know, know the community, we know the different judges, we know the property values, we know the school system. So that was really a strategic and important part of why we did things so that we understood the clientele and how to better serve them.
Access is never a problem. I've never had anybody really complain that I wasn't available. And that's really another differentiating part of the firm is there's always going to be someone that knows what's going on. It's going to be me. It's going to be the associate. We structured in a way where the associates got a job and I'm overseeing the entire case so that you're getting me basically for the entire case. That's the distinction between us and a lot of the other competitors.
Each office is specifically designed to really cover all areas of the law, which include settlement as well as whether the case has to be litigated or not. So you really get the benefit of a complete firm that covers all the issues and all the possibilities in a case. It provides a really unique access to information and differences of strategy and how to present things that you really don't get a lot of places, and that really goes to our depth.
