Our longevity and consistent success is based upon a simple philosophy. We concentrate solely upon the needs of our clients within the insurance industry while upholding the uppermost level of professionalism with the court and counsel. Our goal in every case is to meet the needs of our client in the most cost effective manner possible. We work diligently in tandem with claims professionals to formulate an effective defense strategy in a manner that gives the carrier the freedom to either negotiate an advantageous settlement or to confidently proceed to trial.

As a litigation firm, we have distinguished ourselves as highly skilled trial lawyers. Our success in the courtroom is based not only upon our skills as trial lawyers, but also upon our focus upon the most salient issues that are critical to the effective defense of the case. With this purpose in mind, we aggressively pursue pre-trial discovery and communicate with the claims professionals throughout the discovery process as to the continued viability of our defense of the case.
