The Firm was founded on the principle that a boutique litigation practice is capable of providing the best legal representation in court at any time. Will you pay more for the firm to represent you? Of course. But it comes back to the fundamental question of how important it is to win your case. While our rates are competitive for the level of service we provide, it is a fact that the highest quality representation takes time, commitment, and passion.
