Resolving disputes when things go wrong

Firm history

Since that time, we have added new counsel and resources to provide increased depth to our areas of practice while continuing to provide the personalized service that is the hallmark of our firm.  Today, our firm focuses on estate litigation. We also handle real estate litigation, insurance litigation, commercial litigation and elder abuse litigation.
