Our firm has always been recognized as a highly effective and cost efficient alternative to the high priced firms. We believe that delivering the results desired by clients in both a cost-effective and time efficient manner is what sets firms apart. We are a leader in devising creative and mutually beneficial alternative fee arrangements.

Although we continue to grow, broaden and develop our core practice areas of insurance defense litigation, we are proud of the practice area development we have achieved over the years to include corporate and business transactions, real estate and banking and finance.
