About Us
We set out to build a new kind of law firm. One that challenges how law firms operate, breaks away from rigid traditions and places the client at the heart of all we do. We think that we succeeded. At Ebeltoft . Sickler . Lawyers we measure our success by the satisfaction of our clients.

We commit to cooperative client representation. We have a wide range of lawyer expertise within our four walls and our mission is to harness the extensive experience and youthful energy at Ebeltoft . Sickler . Lawyers to more effectively represent our clients than you have come to expect from other mainline firms. We pledge to provide our clients with the highest level of service, and provide these services in a timely and efficient manner. Appointments are kept, calls are returned in a timely fashion and e-mail promptly answered. Each one of our lawyers and each one of our staff maintains an attitude of service and respect to our clients. We will be available to our clients when they need us, not when it is convenient for us.

Our lawyers are skilled in civil litigation and in means to avoid litigation. We provide advance planning and problem solving for businesses large and small, established and new. Ebeltoft . Sickler . Lawyers are counselors to individuals just beginning their careers and seeking to accomplish personal goals, to those who have already achieved a great deal, and to those making end of life decisions. We work in real estate, energy and environmental arenas, and partner with public entities and educational and health providers to meet their legal needs.

At Ebeltoft . Sickler . Lawyers, we believe we increase the satisfaction we experience in our work by building our skills each day. We have a substantial base upon which to build – one that is unrivaled in our area.
