Litigation

Sometimes real estate and business deals go bad. Or you can’t collect on a business debt. Or a former employee is stealing your customers, or that former employee is suing you. There are thousands of different situations where your rights and your money are at stake. The first thing we do is evaluate the situation and, in consultation with you, plan a sensible course of action. If that course of action includes litigation, then we go to court and fight like heck to protect your rights.
