Our Practice

The firm concentrates its practice on issues related to business and real estate, including transactional matters as well as real estate and business litigation. We provide the high level of personal attention and efficiency you expect from a boutique law firm with the same access to resources customarily associated only with a large law practice. We believe that the quality of our work is comparable to any large law firm, and we generally attract the same clients as larger practices. Because of our reputation for thorough and effective counsel, many of our clients are other lawyers who need guidance with complex business or real estate matters. We are a result oriented-firm focused on offering personalized service to our clients to achieve the best possible results. Whether we are called upon to negotiate and resolve disputes prelitigation or to litigate a case through trial, our focus is always on achieving the client’s objectives through the most efficient and economic means possible. Where prelitigation resolution is not possible, we believe in using a proactive approach. We recognize that litigation can be a financial and emotional drain on clients, and we do everything possible to dispose of claims during the early stages of litigation.
