Waugh Law is different by design — not by happenstance. Christian Waugh, founder of the firm, sets a high bar for both the quality of our legal services and our attentiveness to clients. We provide top-notch, cost-effective services at reasonable prices, accompanied by superior client service. Our traditional approach to practice, the scope and depth of our services, and the dynamism of our firm are the intrinsic qualities that set us apart.
We are an earnestly modern law firm. On-going investment in our infrastructure provides our team with state-of-the-art technology, which enables us to work more efficiently and provide reasonably priced services for our clients. Within that high-tech framework, our approach to practicing law is traditional. Our attorneys are generalists, who provide transactional counsel and litigation representation across a broad range of substantive areas.
We are akin to the small-town lawyers of mid-twentieth century America who tirelessly served all the legal needs of every client. Those attorneys all but disappeared when specialization took over the legal profession in the latter decades of the last century. Waugh Law embraces that time-honored practice model.
Our clients are as diverse as our practice. We provide legal services to businesses and individuals. Our business clients operate in many different industries and markets and include large international corporations, as well as small mom-and-pop ventures.
The first thing to know about Christian Waugh is that he appreciates and incorporates the ideals of Star Trek into his life and work. It is not a coincidence that Christian’s aspiration in his practice is the same as Starfleet’s mission to “boldly go where no one has gone before.”
Christian is a passionate but urbane attorney. His spirited personality draws people in. His empathy, intuition, and uncommon devotion to the law (and life) help him share all aspects of the legal galaxy with his clients. Similarly, Christian’s extensive experience and superlative legal skills enable him to address any concern or need that arises for a client.
The bedrock legal principles of fairness and justice are Christian’s guiding precepts for the firm. Integrity and candor are crucial underpinnings for every matter we handle. Our client relationships are built solidly on sincere mutual respect and trust.
Our practice at Waugh Law is distinctive in two different respects. First, we provide services across a comprehensive array of substantive law areas. We handle matters ranging from real estate and local government law to all types of business and corporate concerns and estate planning — and more.
Equally notable is the fact that we handle litigation and court appeals in addition to transactional matters. Many lawyers concentrate their practices on just one type of work to the exclusion of others. So, if litigation arises during a transactional matter, the lawyer must refer the client to a different attorney who handles litigation. In our case, no referral is necessary. In fact, Waugh Law receives many litigation referrals from transactional lawyers.
We recognize that each type of legal work requires a special set of skills. Christian Waugh’s achievements throughout the decade of his legal practice demonstrate his extraordinary insight into the fundamental keys to success in transactions, trials, and appeals.
The range and versatility of our proficiency are a substantial benefit to every client. Even if litigation doesn’t arise in a transaction, our litigation experience informs us about how to navigate through a transaction skillfully, in a way that avoids a court action. Similarly, our transactional experience is an advantage in trial and appellate litigation, because we understand first-hand how legal disputes can arise in an interaction.
Our approach and philosophy resonate with our clients and our colleagues in the legal profession. Proof of our success lies in the fact that most of our clients come to us through referrals of current or previous clients or other attorneys. Our long-term relationships with many clients also attest to the confidence and trust that our uncommon approach to practicing law instills in our clients.
