Prevent - Protect - Prosecute

We work closely with Human Resource professionals and General Counsel to develop personnel policies that PREVENT employee disputes. We also listen to the problem on your desk today, and plan, with you, the best solution to PROTECT your interests. When the lawsuit or union campaign or demand for arbitration arrives at your doorstep, or when it becomes necessary to take the fight to your opponent, we zealously Defend or PROSECUTE the action for the best possible outcome.

The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience.
