The firm litigation department handles all areas of dispute resolution, including conflicts and claims arising before a civil lawsuit is ever filed. Our attorneys want to achieve for each client, the most cost effective solution to disputes. Although we are prepared to litigate client disputes in a lawsuit in court, court cases do not always present the best option for a client. Civil lawsuits can be expensive, time consuming and mentally exhausting to clients. Many times, informal settlement discussions, or more formal mediations with a neutral disinterested certified mediator, or binding arbitrations in the right arbitration forum are better solutions for the client. After a thorough consultation with one of our attorneys as to which option is best for avoiding a dispute or resolving an existing dispute, our clients select the appropriate option, and can feel in control of their own destinies. One of our attorneys is also a certified mediator who has participated in hundreds of mediations and he knows mediation from the inside out.

The types of civil cases, mediations, arbitrations and disputes which we have worked on are too numerous to list, however, some of the areas that we are most commonly involved with include:
