From the very start, a comprehensive action plan will be created to aid in your understanding and guide your situation to an outcome that protects your legal rights and  preserves your interests; whether that be negotiations toward a settlement, participating in alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration, or engaging in strong and strategic litigation in court.


The firm recognizes the importance of fully understanding the expectations and goals of each client regarding your legal situation. Decades of experience in the court system provides keen insight into what is necessary to protect your legal rights and interests. This is accomplished with a unique skill set developed from a diverse professional background that no other attorney in the area can offer. The result is targeted, straightforward advice that is practical and reasonable, and when necessary, representation in court that is rarely matched.


The last thing you want to worry about is whether the legal fees in dealing with your situation will exceed your affordability. We attempt to establish a flat fee for legal services as often as we can. For matters that require hourly billing, an up-front budget is openly discussed and mutually created. Your fee arrangement is memorialized in a written fee agreement that details the scope of the attorney-client relationship so that expectations are clear from the beginning for both client and attorney.
