We want you, your loved ones, and/or your business to achieve your goals and objectives while avoiding the courtroom whenever possible. To accomplish this, we will: (1) assess your situation; (2) develop a plan based on your goals and objectives; (3) implement the plan; and (4) evaluate the situation to determine if your goals and objectives are achieved.
With over 22 years of combined experience in the areas of estate planning, probate, probate litigation, trust litigation, as well as business planning, civil litigation, and construction law, our broad experience allows us to take a practical approach to your legal issues, both inside and outside of the courtroom.
Staying Away from the Courtroom. Proper planning and implementation can often avoid the courtroom. Outcomes are typically more favorable when attorneys are involved early in a relationship or business matter, when there is not a dispute between parties. If a dispute arises, a properly devised plan will address how to deal with such a situation. Our experience has shown that having an attorney involved with your estate plan and business planning can add tremendous economic value, in addition to reducing the emotional toil, stress, and time consumption of a lawsuit.
Inside the Courtroom. There are times that no amount of planning can avoid a dispute. In such circumstances, we follow the Abraham Lincoln approach: “Discourage litigation – Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can – Point out to them how the nominal winner is often the real loser, in fees, expenses, and waste of time – As a peace-maker, the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man.” While we believe it is in everyone’s best interest to avoid litigation and peaceably resolve disputes, sometimes that’s not possible. In those unusual circumstances, we will work with you to develop a litigation strategy that works for you and your budget. If and when we go to court, we will strive to exceed your expectations.
