Kenji Maejima

My name is Kenji Maejima, the director of the firm.
I believe that people used to think of consulting a lawyer as a last resort.

I think there were various reasons for this, such as the high threshold for lawyers and the worry about how much money one would cost.
However, when I listen to people who come for legal consultations, there are many cases where, if we're talking about an injury, a compound fracture has already occurred with a lot of effort required to reassemble the bone, or there is no way for it to heal anymore, or after-effects will remain even if it heals.

These are some of the things that you may wish you had come to an attorney for sooner, which is why I hope to create a system where people can consult with intuitive explanations and affordable fees.
