For All Your Business Litigation Needs

We understand that your business goals are unique and that your litigation strategy must be tailored to fit them. For many businesses, this means settling disputes quickly and cost effectively. For others, however, quick settlement may open the door to much more litigation or to unnecessary expense. In some cases, the prospect of paying high hourly rates might prevent your business from pursuing a meritorious claim.

We are business owners ourselves, so we appreciate your need to have breach of contract or other business lawsuits handled as efficiently and economically as possible.

Confidential Free Consultations; No Attorneys Fees Unless You Receive Compensation

We understand that when an injury occurs, people are concerned about medical expenses, lost income, and compensation for their pain and suffering and other damages. We can answer these questions, and more importantly, we can put our experience to work immediately toward helping victims of careless or wrongful conduct obtain prompt and appropriate compensation.

We offer free initial consultations for all injury cases. We handle injury cases on a contingency fee basis which means that our fees are a percentage of what we recover for you. You will not owe us any attorney’s fees in such cases unless we are successful in obtaining compensation on your behalf.

Contingency fees are calculated based upon the gross amount recovered. Case costs paid by the firm are also reimbursed to the firm from the amount recovered. In most cases, the client will not be responsible for case costs if there is no recovery. Our agreement regarding fees and expenses applicable to your specific case will be provided in writing.

Each case must stand on its own merit based upon the facts and the law.
