Finding the Best Solution

Litigation in California is expensive. Early reasonable case resolution is generally favored by our clients. Our approach involves providing an early initial case analysis and litigation budget, working cooperatively with opposing counsel, targeting focused areas of necessary inquiry, and moving the case strategically into the right disposition posture. The client controls the litigation. We inform and advise the client to facilitate the decision-making process, and we execute those decisions once made.
