Expert representation: Since 1983, the emphasis of the firm has been personal service to lenders and attention to detail. Because the focus of our practice is limited to creditor's rights, the firm can offer a lender or business client a unique blend of responsive service and expert representation. Responsive representation: Direct contact with an attorney responsible for any particular matter is an advantage offered by our firm, but it is oftentimes elusive in the larger firms. For those clients who need to track the progress of their cases easily, our firm is the right choice. No-nonsense representation: Our direct approach to dispute resolution has been a positive feature of the firm from its beginning. The great majority of contested matters can and should be resolved quickly without costly litigation. We take pride in our reputation in the legal community for creative and effective dispute resolution that serves our clients and the profession in general.
