Early Investigation

Your case matters. We want to understand the series of events that lead you to us. We begin each case by meeting with you. Then, we interview key witnesses and reviewing significant documents. With this information in hand, we meet as a team to provide an early assessment, give you your options, and develop a strategy with your goals in mind.

Court Proceedings Before Trial

There are opportunities to dispose of certain claims or outright win your case before trial. You should not pass up these opportunities. Our attorneys have successfully drafted winning motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment.

Sometimes, it makes sense to resolve a case outside of court. If you decide to pursue this option, our attorneys have extensive experiences representing clients during mediation and arbitration.
