We are a 100-year-old highway heavy construction company. I grew up in the firm and my forefathers have used Melchert Hubert Sjodin for as long as I can remember. I'm of the thinking that if it isn't broken, don't change anything. We've continued to have a good experience and have never shopped fees; the relationship has been much more important.
Melchert Hubert Sjodin helps us with issues related to selling and developing real estate. They have a genuine interest in serving as our partner in the process versus a service provider. Their actions prove that. They focus on finding fair solutions for issues and not just setting up adversary relationships.
I appreciate the fact that they are willing to work with our other legal counsel. They have done this in several situations over fairly complex bond financing issues or with health care law. Yet we look at Melchert Hubert Sjodin similar to in-house counsel because of their broad experience and ability to turn things around quickly. They have fabulous turnaround time and we've always felt that their rates were fair and accurately portrayed the work they did.
