We work with clients to ensure that litigation is pursued to protect their rights and to provide them with full and meaningful remedies. In some instances litigation is the only means of obtaining an effective result for the client. In other cases, litigation is one of the tools that is used to reach a favorable outcome. Mediation and alternative dispute resolution procedures provide effective results in some cases. In all cases, we focus
on the goals and objectives of the client and attempt to chart a course with the client that best serves the client's interests.

Partners in the firm have been involved in litigation in state and federal courts for more than twenty-five years and are familiar with the procedures, strategies and tactics that can be used in the various state and federal courts and administrative agencies to effectively advance the interests of the client. That experience enables the firm to provide clients with effective representation and with a thorough analysis of the manner in which litigation will serve the needs and goals of clients in individual cases.
