We have been there many times before, helping clients - defendants and plaintiffs -- obtain successful results over the course of our more than four decades of trial litigation and appeals, mediation, arbitration, and negotiation to resolution.

As business and corporate litigators, we have handled complex partnership disputes for our business clients, including farm partnership dissolutions in the agricultural industry. We also represent clients in matters of public policy strategy and litigation on a national scale. For example, attorney Lawrence F.

Protect Your Rights

In our legal practice, our goal is always the same: put our clients' interests first and represent them using all of our resources. First, we will try to negotiate a settlement out of court, because going to trial can be costly, timely, and emotionally draining for all involved. A resolution that is fair and balanced out of court is of even more value for our client. But if it becomes apparent that your interests will only be protected through litigation, this is a key component of our practice and we intend to make our work worth your while.
