Our Philosophy

We are litigators, but first and foremost, we strive to solve problems.

Litigation is not always the best solution to a problem, and we regularly counsel our clients on litigation avoidance and more cost-effective methods of dispute resolution, including early settlement conferences and mediation.  If litigation is necessary or best, we do it. If another means of solving the problem is best, we advise it.  We keep our clients’ business interests, in addition to their legal interests, at the forefront of our strategy.

We offer flexible and reasonable fee arrangements tailored to our clients’ particular needs and circumstances.

Our Practice

We represent businesses and individuals in federal and state courts and arbitration, and handle a wide variety of disputes, including cases involving

  • Banking and financial services
  • Business torts
  • Condemnation matters
  • Contract disputes
  • Financial fraud
  • Fiduciary litigation
  • Joint use and pole attachment disputes
  • Real estate disputes
  • Receivership issues
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Trusts and estates matters

We also have served as court-appointed guardians ad litem, receivers and special masters in civil cases.

In addition to litigation, we routinely advise financial institutions and other clients about legal issues affecting their businesses.  We also handle internal investigations and other special engagements.
