Savage & Associates Advocate + Advisor + Ally

Savage & Associates is not a traditional law firm. We do not have a grand lobby. We do not hire hordes of associates. There are no box seats at Lincoln Financial Field to give away. And we’re good with that. As a small boutique firm, what we have to offer clients is actually of much greater value.


We use simple fixed fee billing. No hourly rates, no surprises. We do this because it allows us to stay on budget and keeps our incentives aligned with yours. We invest in clients over the long term and bill in a way that is clear and sustainable.


What good does it do to have a fancy lawyer, if you can’t get her to return your phone call? There are no barriers to access here or dial tones after 5:00 pm on Friday. As a client of this firm, you will have multiple ways to reach out when you need us—whenever you need us.


We offer a rare combination of Big Law training and real-world experience. Because we understand the unique challenges of operating in communities in need of redevelopment, we don’t rely on textbook or “this-is-the-way-it’s-always-done” templates. Every client is different. Every project is different. Every solution is tailored.


Got time for lectures about difficulties and roadblocks? Neither do we. Economic development deals come with complications, so clients need attorneys who are committed to seeing it through to the end. When obstacles arise, we don’t dwell. We just figure out another way to make it work.
