Our insurance companies and corporate clients call on us for tasks ranging from detailed investigations and exposure analysis to complex litigation. All our clients benefit from the training and supervision we receive from insurance companies and the guidelines they provide.

Why select us? One reason is our experienced trial attorneys who are not afraid to take a verdict. We also have nationally known appellate attorneys to complement our trial groups and complex litigation units. We can take a complex matter and make it understandable to help guide you to the right solution whether it be settlement, mediation or trial.

Another reason to use our firm is that we pay close attention to the cost of litigation. No one wants an attorney who, while doing a fine job, bills more than the matter is worth. We will work with you to make sure that you get what you pay for and do not pay for more than you need.
