Civil Litigation

Our litigation attorneys are experienced negotiators, mediators, and trial lawyers. We try to avoid business lawsuits and disputes if at all possible. However, our experience has shown that in order to be successful in negotiations, it’s important to operate from a position of strength. That often means filing suit.

With the help of mentors and senior partners, we learned early on that an attorney truly looking out for his or her client never agrees to take a case that he or she isn’t prepared to take to trial. As a result of this sage advice, our attorneys are always prepared to go to trial. The best settlements occur when the opposing party realizes that we’re ready, willing, and able to take the matter before the court. It’s through a position of strength that our attorneys are often able to negotiate the best settlements and outcomes for our clients.

We keep all options open at all times, because that is what smart business litigation attorneys should do. We remain focused on our client’s goals without any other issues clouding our objectives.

Contract Disputes and Debt Collection

Our attorneys are always ready to enforce contractual rights and collect monies for our clients. We thoroughly review and analyze every case before we accept it. Based on the information provided to us and our joint investigatory efforts, our clients understand their options and have a reasonable expectation of what to expect before we file suit. Just as importantly, we’ll discuss the likelihood that our efforts will lead to an actual financial recovery. We help our business clients engage in pre-litigation, litigation, and post-litigation strategies, including sending demand letters, filing suit, and obtaining judgments. There are times for filing suit in collections and there are times when it’s more advantageous to negotiate. We help our clients make the best overall business decisions to collect their money fast.
