Request a Consultation

We partner with you on a contingency fee basis.

Your success is our success. We expect to win, which is why we seek to avoid the hourly billing model and enter into contingency fee relationships with our clients.

Our Process

  • Initial conversation. We gather all the necessary information to begin evaluating your matter.
  • Evaluation. Using the information provided and our own resources, we investigate and assess the possible claims and defenses and determine the right fee arrangement.
  • Filing the lawsuit. This starts the formal litigation process. Prior to filing we strategize as a team and collaborate with the client to determine a path that we believe will best accomplish the client's goals.
  • Exchange and gathering of information. This is called the discovery phase and includes taking the testamentary of witnesses, the exchanging and gathering of information and documents and evaluating whether or not claims are appropriate for resolution through written briefs.
  • Mediation. Oftentimes the parties will attempt to resolve the case by using a neutral third-party to help bring the sides together.
  • Trial. If mediation or negotiations are unsuccessful, the next stop is the courthouse.
