SOUDERTON >> James Lare, his wife and three children moved from Jenkintown to the Souderton area in 2008.
“It’s a wonderful community. I think it has a great sense of neighborhood and spirit,” Lare said. “As I got to know more of the people in the area, I thought this would be an ideal place to start the firm.”
Lare Law Firm was started in October of last year and moved into its office in Suite 307 of the Village Centre Office Suites on Main Street in November, he said.
A ribbon cutting by Souderton-Telford Main Streets was held March 26.
Practice areas listed on a brochure include personal injury, product liability, commercial disputes, employment law, general counsel to businesses, contract drafting and negotiation, wills/trusts and powers of attorney.
“It will always be a boutique litigation firm,” Lare said.
Having a responsive relationship with clients is important, he said.
“It will not be a situation where phone calls or emails do not get returned,” Lare said, “and so clients will always feel as if there’s a real connection to the attorney who is representing their interests.”
After graduating from law school in 2005, he clerked for a federal judge, Lare said.
From 2007 until September of 2017, he worked for a large Philadelphia-based law firm, becoming a partner in 2012, he said.
Prior to becoming an attorney, he was an airline pilot, he said.
“I still get my fix every once in awhile,” Lare said. “I still am an active pilot.”
Village Centre Office Suites is one of three neighboring old industrial buildings that have been restored in recent years for new uses.
“It’s a nice location. Clients really enjoy the building,” Lare said.
It’s convenient and has parking, he said.
“It’s an old building, has a lot of charm,” Lare said, “and it shows some of the revitalization that has taken place as well.”
