Our particular strengths are defense of general liability, medical malpractice, professional liability and municipal claims as well as business litigation. You can trust our trial experience and reputation for success in state and federal courts to provide effective and vigorous advocacy when trial is necessary, as well as leverage when settlement negotiations are appropriate.
