Litigation

Our litigators never forget that litigation is a serious and expensive business that is a critical event in the personal and professional lives of our clients. As a result, our first goal is to provide an early assessment of risks, costs and benefits of potential litigation and to develop an early case management strategy.   This early assessment and evaluation seeks to identify key legal and factual issues and narrow the issues for litigation. We strive to define client business, monetary, and personal objectives from the outset.

Using our clients' objectives, we create a flexible and effective strategy for achieving results in a cost effective manner.  Our litigators are problem solvers.  We offer sophisticated advice for decision making, strategy to implement those decisions, and effective presentations to judges, juries, arbitrators and mediators.

Our litigation team has extensive experience in all aspects of litigation:

  • Environmental and Real Estate Disputes
  • Trust and Estate Litigation
  • Financial Elder Abuse
  • Income, Estate, Gift, Sales, and Property Tax
  • Corporate, Partnership, and LLC
  • Contract Interpretation and Enforcement

ADR can drastically reduce the amount of time and cost needed to resolve disputes by focusing the parties on key issues in the dispute, and by limiting or eliminating discovery and pretrial motions and hearings.  ADR also provides the client with greater control over their destiny.
