LITIGATION. It comes in two forms. You have been sued and you want the lawsuit to go away. Or you have been wronged by someone and you want to sue. In either case, you know you need an attorney. Now you have a choice. The attorney you use for business matters rarely handles litigation. Should you hire her anyway, or try the attorney who specializes in litigation your friend recommends? The one he calls the “attack dog”?
LITIGATION. In the end, it’s nothing more or less than showing a court that you are right. A lawyer you have worked with in the past may prove a liability if he or she is uncomfortable in court. Having an attack dog on your side may feel invigorating at first, but do you want to pay the legal costs for an attorney who is always in “attack mode” and charges you by the hour slugging out every detail and getting you nowhere? And in the end how will the attack dog fare, when it really matters, in the nuanced dialogue with the court, when the arguments that will make or break your case must be articulated with intelligence and a painstaking presentation of the relevant law? In these situations, you need a polished advocate who can show strength when necessary, but can think strategically to get you the best result.
LITIGATION. Between us, we have over thirty years of experience. In that time, we think we’ve figured out what works best for our litigation clients. Above all, cost control. Whenever possible, we don’t bill by the hour: we bill by the task. And any task we undertake will be fully discussed with you beforehand, so that you understand the necessity of it. Along the way, we work to minimize surprises, keep the goals realistic, and never lose sight of our client’s true objective, a favorable resolution of the matter once and for all. Law is frequently complex, the procedures arcane, and various frustrations in the pursuit of justice are common. We pride ourselves on keeping our clients well-informed at every stage, and make ourselves readily available to answer your questions and discuss your case.
LITIGATION. No, we can’t handle all your litigation needs. No personal injury, no divorce, no insurance actions. We focus on business litigation, and as our client you will benefit from our years of experience committed to business litigation. And, no, chances are you will not bring us a case unlike any other we have dealt with. In fact, chances are whatever the situation you are facing, we have dealt with it successfully, in litigation we have handled for other clients.
