We are selective about our clients and cases. We try to only take on client matters when we can add value by providing accurate advice that avoids contains legal problems, or obtains a good result when the law and facts support a client’s position.

We decline cases we are contacted about,  if we  cannot see a way to get a good client result, whether we are defending or prosecuting the case.

We always want to be candid in discussing the merits of the case, and the potential return on your legal investment.
