Mediation can be a desirable alternative to protracted, antagonistic and costly courtroom battles. Plus, mediation allows parties to control the outcomes of their disputes, in contrast to an outside dictate by the judge or jury. As a qualified neutral mediator, we work with our clients to speed this process toward a fair and mutual resolution. For over 15 years, we’ve mediated highly contested cases, protecting our clients’ interests while respecting each party’s right to proceed with litigation, if so desired.
Challenging an unfavorable or erroneous ruling by a lower court—or, alternately, preserving a good one—requires a thorough knowledge of the appellate process. Because of the complexity of the appellate court system, you need a lawyer who is fluent in its protocol. Over our 15+ years in law, we‘ve drafted and argued numerous appeals on a wide range of cases, from simple to complex. We’ve also been engaged by other law firms to lend our expertise in their own appellate preparation.
