In those states not identified, we routinely team with local counsel. We have handled complex civil litigation and claims in 48 states and the District of Columbia.
We are highly responsive to the needs of our clients and we continue to build lasting, mutually beneficial relationships. Understanding that early and accurate assessments are vital to a successful outcome, new cases are analyzed promptly upon receipt and clients are quickly given recommendations and advice that will provide a complete picture of the case. We work towards quick dismissal or summary judgment whenever possible. If a case is not granted an early dismissal, we conduct thorough investigation to uncover vulnerabilities and develop maximum leverage for a swift and favorable resolution.
