Experienced legal talent and quality services

The partners of our firm bring more than 80 years of combined legal experience. We have patterned our practice, in both the caliber of legal talent and the quality of services offered, after that of a large, full-service practice. But then we also make sure we provide the personalized service characteristic of smaller firms.

We are mindful of the high cost of legal services today and endeavor to provide the most cost-effective solutions to your problems through innovative pricing alternatives, such as fixed and contingent fees quoted in advance, and through technologically superior equipment and skills.
