Experience matters Civil Litigation Practice Areas
We focus on disputes in court or headed for court. These matters are civil disputes—not criminal cases—in a number of practice areas. We represent plaintiffs and defendants. We are firm believers that our experience on either side of the courtroom and in many courtrooms provide our clients the best strategic vantage point for each client’s particular case in our practice areas.
