Our trial lawyers have successfully represented both plaintiffs and defendants in hundreds of jury trials, non-jury trials, and arbitrations. Our commercial litigation experience includes work at both the trial and appellate levels in local, state, and federal cases.

Need to utilize computer forensics assets? We’ve got it covered. The ability to recover deleted files, browser history, and document routing can often make all the difference in a case.
