Despite good intentions and relationships, conflicts or misunderstandings arise. When a client of our firm brings an issue to us, we listen, review the documents provided and formulate a plan to deal with the situation.

Often a misunderstanding can be resolved without resorting to litigation, however, conflicts that cannot be resolved with this approach are prepared for litigation. During litigation, we aggressively pursue the claims or defenses of our clients, and encourage input from our clients to ensure that the litigation remains focused on their goals.
