Firm Overview

One of our core competencies is business transactional work, which typically involves planning, advising, when you are purchasing a business.

We also assist our clients with dispute resolution. That means everything from communicating with an opposing party or its attorneys, to negotiating, preparing and filing court documents, evidence, and then in court if necessary.

What differentiates us from other firms is the combination of our experience in handling business transactions as well as resolving disputes. Our dispute-resolution experience guides us in structuring transactions to avoid potential conflict, and our transactional experience helps us understand root causes of disputes as they arise.

We provide steady guidance through challenging situations, and we work as efficiently as we can to help you obtain a resolution.

Further, we treat the legal system with the highest respect, and we make sure everyone who comes in to our office is treated with that same respect.

We enjoy working relationships with our clients based on shared values and a businesslike approach to handling often-complex legal matters. Our clients' needs define the work we do, and we are there from start to finish. We will meet with you, carefully weigh your options, and plan a strategy to achieve a result.
