Trials and appeals are what we do. We prepare every case to go to trial, and our opponents know we will take our cases to verdict and on appeal if necessary.

This approach makes good settlements possible. Further, in cases that come to us after a verdict has been reached, our appellate team boasts an impressive record of preserving judgments for the winning side and convincing appellate courts to reverse awards for clients who lost at trial.

We handle all types of disputes. And we do so at every level—from state administrative proceedings to trials and appeals in state and federal courts across the country. Our client roster includes individuals as well as Fortune Global 100 companies. Most of our clients are referrals from former clients and lawyers who have seen us in action.
