As a boutique law firm, we are passionate about helping small businesses thrive. Every entity begins as a start‐up, and we know that (especially at the beginning) every dollar counts. That is why at Fleitas & Arca PLLC we pride ourselves on being practical and effective.
Established businesses have been around the block and can always hire larger format law firms to handle their business needs. However, our clients understand that the size of our Firm gives us the flexibility to assign a smaller transactional team to a particular case, which in turn allows our final bills to be substantially less than our larger counter-parts. Our law offices have a small-firm platform, which enables us to offer swift and cost-efficient advice to clients. This streamlined approach to legal representation, promotes our client-access model and provides for legal representation that is much more cost-effective.
Our clients come from all over the world, but the common thread among them is the desire to have a team of lawyers that is accessible. At Fleitas & Arca PLLC talented and accomplished Miami-based lawyers and staff are committed to our client-access model.
