Our practice's central philosophy: partnership. We spend time to understand what our client's goals are and develop an action plan centered around meeting those goals. In the litigation context, that might mean pushing a matter or action towards trial or it might mean investing the time to become an expert in the case or action to create leverage for a settlement. On the transactional side, we view all of our matters through the prism of avoiding litigation. Our business clients are most interested in growing their business and, in turn, their wealth. Litigation can slow growth. By harnessing our litigation experience and prowess, we can steer our clients in a direction that positions them to succeed with minimal long-term risk. I am a career litigator, having served as both a city and state prosecutor. I also served as an adjunct professor of law in trial advocacy. I know how to try a case. But I also know that the greatest battles are often won outside of the courtroom through research, diligence and perseverance. I offer my clients the services of a top-flight litigator who understands the benefits of avoiding litigation whenever possible.
