Foundational Beliefs and Credo
Vermeulen Attorneys was established on three basic tenets: Reliability, Accountability, and Results. We believe that the legal community has, wrongfully, been associated with various negative stereotypes. We have made it our goal to expel these negative stereotypes by providing a service to our clients which is dedicated, professional, transparent and fair. To this end, we employ a legal methodology which is comprised of frequent updates to our clients, open and honest communication, and accounts which are a fair and true portrayal of the work done. We realize that competent and efficient legal assistance is the right of every client and not merely an ideal to which lip-service is paid. We take pride in the fact that clients are dealt with in a professional manner, and in a professional setting.
