About Us

We are seasoned trial lawyers with an impressive record of success in the state and federal courts, including at the appellate level.  Our extensive litigation experience ranges from bodily injury and property damage claims to business and commercial disputes, along with a variety of other types of cases.  We are always prepared to take cases to trial when necessary, but we are also focused on possible alternative and economic resolutions, including mediation and arbitration, when advisable.  We are also skilled negotiators and have a great record of obtaining very favorable settlements for our clients.  We are adept attorneys and have successfully handled many different types of cases.

Additionally, we are experienced, trusted counselors to businesses and individuals alike and have guided our clients in many types of legal matters and transactions over our firm's long history.  We are skilled in negotiating, analyzing, structuring and properly documenting transactions.  Having been often called upon in our litigation practice in disputes created by parties who have not carefully drafted their contracts and documents, we use the utmost care when handling the details of our clients' transactional matters with an eye toward avoiding unnecessary litigation in the future.

We welcome the opportunity to be of service to you and/or your business and are always available for an initial consultation at no charge.  Please contact us if we can be of assistance.
