We focus on the best outcomes for our clients whether the matter is large or small.  Often the best result is a settlement or other outcome short of court resolution.  However, not all cases can be summarily resolved.  While approximately 95% of cases do resolve short of adjudication, our attorneys have enjoyed a particularly impressive record in court, arbitration and transactional results.  Here is just a sample of the recent results our attorneys have achieved for their clients:
