In July 2008, after serving for 18 years as an in house corporate lawyer and for 5 years as a large law firm partner, Jeff Paulsen formed Paulsen Law Firm, PLLC. Jeff formed the law firm based upon his belief that the traditional law firm business model was not sustainable and not client-centric; and based upon his vision that it was possible to provide clients with high quality timely legal representation at a reasonable cost.
Since establishing Paulsen Law Firm, PLLC, Jeff’s beliefs have been confirmed and many traditional law firms are now struggling to survive as the economic downturn has caused many law firms to lay-off attorneys in record numbers to save costs. While this has helped these law firms survive in the short term, the high fixed overhead costs and minimum billable hour revenue model of these firms still require that these firms operate within a broken business model that rewards billable hours as opposed to superior client services.
The Bloomfield Hills, Michigan based Paulsen Law Firm, PLLC is working with other similarly minded legal service providers to offer business clients with superior client services and preferred, improved and cost effective options to resolve their legal issues.

In Jeff’s own words:
"We make a commitment to putting our clients’ interests first. Being a former General Counsel and client of many traditional law firms, I understand how you want to be treated as a client. Not only do you want high quality legal counseling and services, but you want to know that your lawyer will provide you with legal solutions and not just legal complications. We look for and we find creative legal solutions to your legal issues.
We keep our overhead costs very low so that we can also make a commitment to keeping our clients’ costs as low as possible. The cost savings we create are passed along to our clients. With our lean operating model, we are able to offer clients a variety of billing options suited to best meet their individual needs. We are committed to offering superior legal services for business clients with a focus on client results. Please review a few of the testimonials we have received from satisfied clients under the Testimonial tab."
