As much as possible, lawsuits should be avoided. Parties to business disputes are wise to resolve their differences outside of traditional civil litigation. Lawsuits are tremendously expensive, time consuming, and emotionally draining. Rarely is any case cut and dry. Rarely do judges have the time or interest to dig deeply into a civil dispute.
When a business dispute escalates to litigation, your case requires attorneys who are skilled in both trial procedure, strategy, preparation, and diplomacy.
We are openly candid with clients about the realities and expenses associated civil litigation. Often no one wins in litigation, including the lawyers. Attorneys who do not inform their clients of the realities of litigation do their clients a great disservice. All sides to a dispute are wise to avoid and resolve their differences outside of litigation.

If needed we can and will take your litigation matter to a trial verdict. In fact, our basic approach to litigation is to prepare a case with the expectation we are going to trial.
We don’t bluff or posture as a tactic when it comes to litigation, which we have found is often how many attorneys approach litigation.
Often our best lawyering is done by resolving your case prior to trial through discovery, summary judgment, informal settlement negotiations, mediation, or even arbitration. When we take on a litigation matter we expect our clients to have the commitment and fortitude to see the matter through to a completed trial verdict. We do not represent clients that do not expect to see a litigation matter through to a completed trial. Once the threshold of litigation is crossed, we will skillfully advance your case to trial through strategy, grit, and preparation. Throughout litigation we include our clients in the process of developing a winning strategy tailored to each client’s circumstances and needs.
That’s it. Our business litigation philosophy is success through strategy, strength, and preparation. Along the way, we will always work constructively and respectfully with opposing counsel, opposing parties, and the courts. And, we will always leave the door open to settlement, both informal and through formal mediation, while preparing to win at trial.
