Credibility is the cornerstone of effective litigation.

Our Litigation Law Department is expert in all phases of the process; case preparation, settlement, and if necessary trial and appeal.

As a trusted advocate, our litigators strongly believe that the most favorable outcomes, whether they be at trial or through settlement, are achieved through robust, comprehensive, and meticulous trial preparation. They are confident in their abilities to build and maintain high levels of trust with our clients, judges, jurors and even opposing counsel.

Additionally, our litigators possess strong communication skills. Our attorneys are adept at the negotiation process, attacking each case in good faith, and with the necessary competitive spirit required to best represent the client’s interests…and win.

Civil Litigation
Our Civil Litigation Department is dedicated to guiding our clients through the entire process of pursuing and filing a non-criminal lawsuit. Our experienced trial attorneys are able to provide objective, well-informed advice on the merits of a case, and confident in their determination if a case is best suited for court, or if the matter can be best handled outside the courtroom.

Commercial Litigation
Our Commercial Litigation Department is expertly prepared to assess the merits of a business dispute. Our goals are to secure the integrity of our client’s business interests; the best possible outcome and at a reasonable cost. We represent our client’s interests across various venues; from state and federal courts to private arbitrations and administrative hearings.  Whether it be a successful prosecution or defense, our litigators are expertly proficient at matters such as breach of contract cases, partnership/joint venture disputes, class actions, business torts, civil RICO claims, breach of fiduciary duty allegations, and shareholder issues.

Criminal Litigation
Our Criminal Litigation Department is expert in assisting the accused, and in guiding their families, as they navigate the criminal justice system. Our trial attorneys are well versed in criminal law and in case law; and possess the objectivity and integrity necessary to advise and represent client’s accused of a crime. Our extensive resources lead to proactive investigation and research, which is generally the mainstay of a successful case and outcome for the accused.
