In my civil litigation practice, I help people who have legal difficulties in non-criminal matters. The best way to resolve a case without a lawsuit is to carefully gather and prepare evidence as if a lawsuit is inevitable. When representing you I will work to build a strong case designed to enable you to resolve your difficulties without litigation and, to take your case to trial if negotiations break down.
Over the years, I have found that assertive negotiation strategies can often produce positive results in disputes over contracts, personal injury, construction defects and real estate transactions. If possible, I will seek to resolve your case through this means. If negotiations do not resolve your case, then I will aggressively pursue your goals at trial.
If your legal problem may result in a court case, it makes sense to hire a civil litigation lawyer with substantial experience. I have three decades of trial experience, including work as a insurance defense attorney, judge pro tem and court commissioner. When we sit down to discuss your case, I will carefully examine the factual and legal issues it presents, and how those issues would unfold in a trial. I will provide you with my objective opinion regarding your legal options, the chances of success and the costs of those options. You will be able to make an informed decision about your case.
