RESOLVING DISPUTES IN YOUR FAVOR, A.S.A.P.
All lawsuits begin as a dispute between the parties, usually about money. And all disputes end in a negotiated settlement or a litigated judgment or arbitration award.
We are dispute resolution experts.
Our paramount goal is to get all disputes resolved on terms that meet our clients’ financial and non-financial objectives, as quickly as possible.
We always maintain an unwavering focus on that goal.
We are trial and litigation experts.
We are highly skilled at trying cases, with 40 years of experience in California state and federal trial and appellate courts. But we strive to settle all cases before trial. We litigate and resolve disputes involving insurance coverage/bad faith (policyholders only), business disputes (plaintiffs and defendants), and personal injury claims (plaintiffs only).
We are settlement negotiation experts.
We strive to settle all disputes quickly–before either side has filed a lawsuit.
We often use mediation as an effective negotiation tool.
We continue to pursue settlement opportunities at every stage of litigation.
We always keep our clients well-informed...
of the potential risks and rewards of settlement opportunities versus continuing litigation. But we never try to force our clients to agree to a settlement that does not meet their objectives.
On the plaintiff’s side:
If we can’t get a case settled before litigation, we immediately file a lawsuit on our client’s behalf, then prosecute it aggressively, relentlessly, and efficiently. We are prepared to take every case we file to trial and on appeal if necessary.
On the defendant’s side:
If we can’t get a case settled before litigation, and the claimant files a lawsuit, we defend our client aggressively, relentlessly, and efficiently. We identify all potential liability insurance that can possibly cover our client’s defense and indemnity exposure. We develop strategies to try to end the case through summary judgment or adjudication. We are prepared to defend every case through trial and appeal if necessary.
We are always cost conscious.
We know legal services can be expensive. We try out best to make sure your investment in our services pays off in a net return to our plaintiff clients, and in a cost-effective-way of reducing exposure to our defendant clients.
