The structure of the Firm permits our senior litigators to give their personal attention to every case in litigation. A senior attorney will be involved in all phases of the case, from pleadings through trial.
Efficient Use of Personnel
Upon initial assignment, a partner will review the case with the client, and they will reach an agreement regarding which attorney is best suited to handle the case. In order to reduce costs, less senior attorneys may be recommended to handle pleadings, legal research, and basic discovery. Experienced paralegals may also assist at various stages of discovery and trial preparation for cost-effective results.

At trial, our attorneys are equipped with visual technology that allows them to quickly refer to key documents, photographs, computer animations, charts and graphs. These tools enable our attorneys to highlight and manipulate exhibits for emphasis or comparison. We illustrate the case.
