We have successfully represented self-insured small and large businesses, insurance companies, captives, transportation companies, banks, rental car companies, and individuals in a wide variety of legal matters.

We are skilled at identifying and diffusing issues before they become "problems." If your issue has already escalated to the level of a "problem," we can help with that too. We prefer to emphasize the counseling aspect of the practice of law and keep you out of court, but we are fully prepared to represent you in court if the situation requires it. Whatever your needs, you can expect to receive proactive counseling and planning assistance, strict attention to detail, and superior customer service.

Whether you have a general legal question or a question specific to you, please call or send us an email. We will respond as quickly as possible.
