In the unlikely event that an incident occurs that could potentially end up in court, or if you have never worked with a lawyer and are now faced with a problem that might require resolution through litigation, we are happy to meet with you in any of our three locations to discuss the matter.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our firm always examines non-litigious means of resolving disputes between and within companies. Through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) we can often bring parties together and come to an agreement without involving courts or unnecessary expense.


We are happy to represent your business in mediation, working with an unbiased presence to help opposing parties come to an agreement. Like alternative dispute resolution, mediation focuses on solutions rather than discord and allows you to avoid the costs associated with commercial litigation.

Commercial Litigation

Some business disputes, no matter how hard you try to resolve them, still end up in court. In the event that your business dispute does end up in court, you can rely upon our litigation department to provide zealous advocacy to ensure that your interests are represented and that your issue is resolved as quickly as possible.
