Our Litigation Philosophy

Understanding that each client has unique needs and goals, we listen carefully, assess each case individually, and discuss goals and potential outcomes. Because litigation is dynamic and often quite foreign to many clients, we work together with our clients from the outset to develop a strategic plan and continue the communication process throughout each phase to keep clients apprized of significant developments. Regular communication and assessment helps reduce the stress of unknowns. We pursue objectives with aggressive precision, but remain flexible enough to make realistic evaluations in response to the dynamic process in which cases oftentimes develop. We generally prepare cases as though they will go to trial. Although many don’t, experience has shown that thorough preparation and a willingness to go to court often leads to more positive resolutions for our clients. As with our entire practice, we rely upon experience that only comes with years of practice in the trenches, supported by modern technology, to deliver results to our clients efficiently. Although each case is unique, our ultimate goal is always the same: to reduce the burden of stress while achieving the best outcome for each particular client.

Understanding the significant stress caused by the potential for runaway litigation costs, we are often able to avoid the uncertainty of the billable hour by handling litigation and pre-litigation disputes on a flat-fee basis or under alternative billing arrangements.
