Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

Litigation spans nearly every area of the law. Our team of experienced trial lawyers provide deliberate, vigorous representation and employ strategies aimed at achieving your goals while respecting your financial position. We represent individuals and businesses in bringing and defending lawsuits in both state and federal courts, at the trial level and on appeal. In doing so, we bring to bear the depth of our team’s various practice areas and experience.

In addition to courtroom trial work, our trial attorneys will represent you in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) forums, such as mediation, arbitration, and other out-of-court settlement negotiations. Resolving cases to clients’ satisfaction is our passion, and we employ creativity and legal and factual leverage to deliver powerful solutions. Whatever the forum, we work with our clients as advocates to litigate their matters and achieve their litigation goals.
