Experience for when it matters

It is not uncommon for a lawyer to have to deal with difficult disputes with significant amounts of money or property at stake. Furthermore, many different lawyers can draft a complex will for you or help you to negotiate a business deal under time deadlines. However, not all cases are like that.

Sometimes people walk into an attorney’s office with much higher stakes. Sometimes a lawsuit threatens a person’s financial livelihood. Or a parent’s ability to see his or her child is threatened. Or when a family loses a loved one to someone’s carelessness. Sometimes you need an attorney who thinks about your case too much and aggressively pushes back.

Our attorneys have been in the cases where losing is not an option, and we pride ourselves in consistently performing under pressure when the curtains are up and the lights are on. When you have no choice but to “bet the farm,” we will do our best to provide level-headed advice, effective legal service, and a friend who has been there before. Because when the chips are down, experience matters.
