We promote results, not fees. We seek the better outcome for our clients, which very well may coincide with the better outcome for other parties as well. Sometimes it is best to put our petty differences aside, mend fences, and find ways to co-exist rather than tear each other down. We seek ways to compromise, always according to what is truly in our clients' best interests.
