We are dedicated to helping clients first avoid legal troubles with proper legal planning and then we are dedicated to helping our clients successfully overcome legal problems which prove unavoidable.
Our firm works hard for each client to bring our in-depth experience to bear consistently in each situation.
We review the facts and pertinent law. Then we advise the client as to our opinion of the most cost-effective path to pursue to resolve the client’s problems. Sometimes this involves non-litigation resolution even if the client has been sued, such as mediation or arbitration. However, many times litigation is unavoidable. If so, we pursue the litigation imaginatively and relentlessly until we resolve the client’s problems, keeping in mind strategies which may end litigation early and cost-effectively.

Please note we do not ordinarily represent residential tenants. However, if the matter involves personal injury, we would consider the facts and make a case-by-case determination.
