"Justice is the ligament which holds civilized beings and civilized nations together." Daniel Webster
Our attorneys have a reputation through out the state for superior representation at all levels of litigation-- from the initial response up to and including trial, enforcement of judgments, and appeals. We are successful at eliminating causes of action and cases through demurrer, summary adjudication, and/or summary judgment. We conduct discovery and motion practice in a constructive manner and without creating unnecessary costs. We utilize budgets and detailed litigation plans with estimated timelines in order to manage cases effectively.
We evaluate cases early and often and are in close contact with clients in order to weigh the costs and benefits of litigation and strategy options. We represent clients in mediation, arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution, mindful that settlement of the case may impact issues beyond the immediate litigation. Therefore, we assist clients in identifying the consequences of compromises and determining which issues may be worth pursuing through litigation. We have litigated a number of precedent-setting cases in the educational arena, and have the expertise and determination to pursue any matter from the beginning to the end of the litigation process.
