NOTE: If you need legal consultation, due to our busy schedule please make an appointment to personally meet Mr. Gagné or one of his associate attorneys, otherwise a legal assistant will be happy to help you over the telephone with routine matters.

The very last thing I want to have happen is lack of communication between you and my office.  This applies to any issue.  If you feel we are not adequately communicating with you please schedule an appointment to see me.  My door will always be open.  But do it sooner rather than later so we can address the problem before it becomes a larger one.  Make an appointment to see me.  Thank you.
