High-Quality & Cost-Effective Services

We are committed to providing high-quality legal services, whether with respect to routine matters or more complex matters. In every case, we hold steadfast to principles of excellence in both service and execution. Because we measure our success by our clients’ success, we are responsive to the business needs of each of our clients.

Our size is our competitive advantage. Since we can’t relegate our matters to less experienced associates, we have to stay actively involved in every case. We believe that this structure makes us more cost-effective than bigger firms and which, in turn, leads to greater client satisfaction.

Strategic Advice

As a result of our years of experience, professional expertise and business judgment, we offer our clients innovative, effective and pragmatic solutions to the most immediate legal and business challenges. As trusted business advisors and a proven track record of success, we also understand how to help our clients achieve their short-term and long-term strategic goals.

While we believe that a negotiated resolution is often better than a litigated outcome, we have the experience litigating tough cases on behalf of our clients.

Public Service

At Cousins Law we understand the importance of public service. As lawyers we have special obligations to the administration of justice, which is essential to our practice.  We honor the timeless words of the former Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, E. Norman Veasey, that Delaware lawyers have an obligation, and “that obligation is to justice.”

We believe that our support of charitable organizations in the communities where we live and work is critical to strengthening our communities. Accordingly, we demonstrate our deep and unwavering commitment to public service in our communities by engaging in pro bono work and charitable activities.

More specifically, Scott’s pro bono service focuses on protecting and upholding First Amendment rights of people, in particular religious freedom and the right to freely live one’s faith.
