We realize that litigation can be complicated, even messy.  We find creative ways to obtain the best results.

We don’t dump the work on juniors.  As the firm’s founder and supervising lawyer, Neal plays an active role in the progress of each case. Neal, his associates and paralegals talk about how to tackle each file. Together we decide on what tactics to employ, debating the pros and cons of options available. Our clients benefit from the teamwork and rigorous approach.

We take a hands-on approach to every file, avoiding a one size fits all approach.

Litigation clients are frequently part owners in companies and businesses.  Our years of doing legal work for corporate clients helps us to understand and explain your case, then get for you the compensation you deserve. We work with experts who can be hired to give independent expert advice.

The firm gets repeat business because we are quick and efficient.
