Business and Commercial Litigation

We have a proven track record representing clients in connection with contracts, commercial leases, commercial loans, bank collections, buy-sell disputes, sales of goods, stockholder rights, bank fraud and more.

Divorce and child custody disputes often involve complex and stressful personal, legal and financial challenges. We provide sound advice and skillful representation of individuals and families so that they are cared for and in control throughout the entire process.
Personal Injury Litigation
We prosecute virtually all kinds of personal injury claims, including wrongful death and product liability matters. We evaluate each claim in the case as early as possible, using medical and other expert guidance as needed to present the case at trial. If appropriate, we typically explore handling these matters on a contingent fee basis.

We handle a wide range of claims including those involving the purchase and sale of property, partition, zoning and permitting, tax abatements, leasing, commercial eviction and adverse possession. Because of our experience, we are called upon by the courts to manage and sell disputed assets and mediate issues between litigants.
