MEET THE TEAM

Experienced and Strategic

JANE FAIA MENTZ

Attorney

With 35 years experience as an attorney practicing in a variety of roles, I have learned to listen to what people are telling me. Many times their story may not result in, or require, legal action. However, when someone needs legal help, I can discern what they need rather quickly.

My partner, Scott R. Simmons, and I focus on our clients’ needs – first and foremost. We talk with our clients every step of the way, providing options that consider time, expense, and potential outcome. We work to develop a plan, with our client, that meets the client’s needs and budget. We include the client in the decision-making process and explain all facets of the legal process, its benefits, along with its pitfalls.

Our experience ranges from business sales and mergers, personal injury, foreclosure, lease negotiation, successions, wills, non-profit foundation advice, multi-district litigation, property acquisition, development and construction financing, navigating government requirements for RFPs, as well as general legal counsel for our clients.
