Our Approach

Our project management ensures quality and timely results. Nelson, Pope & Voorhis recognizes that each client and project is unique, so our goal is to give personalized attention for outstanding results. We make sure we understand the various aspects, issues and needs associated with each project. Each client works with a partner-level professional who appoints a project manager. In turn, the project manager provides guidance, oversight and public interface and supervises day-to-day project coordination and advancement. The project manager also assembles a select team of trained and dedicated staff from the three NP&V’s divisions. This hand-picked talent ensures quality and timely results. Here are the specific responsibilities of key team members who work with appropriate staff and partners from other divisions to meet the explicit needs of each project:
