I have met a number of the lawyers from Couchman Hanson and worked with a few as well. The culture is one of wanting to help and genuinely interested...not just looking at billable hours.

It is nice to deal with a firm that has the feel and culture they do, whilst also being very good at what they do and very professional.Geoff Day
