We are committed to the following goals:
  • providing quality legal services for fair and reasonable compensation;
  • excelling in individual areas of expertise; and
  • representing each client as responsibly and vigorously as we would want to be represented were we in the client's place.

Our practice is divided between business and litigation matters and ranges from answering basic legal questions to executing difficult business plans and resolving complex legal disputes with multiple issues and parties.

Our transactional attorneys assist individuals with income, estate and gift tax problems, prepare their estate plans and help them mortgage or sell their homes. We counsel businesses on employee benefits, real property developments, financing projects, contract rights, employment discrimination, taxes and regulatory requirements. We structure new business ventures, document real property transactions, handle the sale or purchase of existing businesses, and negotiate equipment leases, financing documents and franchise agreements.

Our litigation attorneys represent individuals and businesses in criminal and civil, administrative and grievance hearings, mediations and arbitrations. We handle disputes involving breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, antitrust violations, wrongful denial of insurance coverage, wrongful termination, employment discrimination, construction defects, constitutional rights, product liability, creditors' rights and shareholder disputes.

Since opening in 1989, we have earned a reputation for achieving superior results and providing high quality, responsive and efficient service. By maintaining sight of our goals, we will continue to achieve the best results for clients.

Therefore, we each reaffirm the commitment.
