Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to provide our clients with high quality legal advice and service for fees and expenses that bear a rational relationship to the stakes and results of each individual matter.  Many of our clients hire the firm on a contingency basis where we become our clients’ partner in the successful outcome of our representation.  Accordingly, we actively seek to reduce litigation expense without sacrificing quality by employing creative cost containment programs and utilizing advanced office technology to support our litigation efforts.  In appropriate cases—and where cost efficient—we recommend the use of alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration.

Client Testimonial

Professional observations don’t even compare to the respect I have for Jim as a person. I had been referred through a long string of attorneys who were interested in my case, and none of them were ready to take it on, and each one passed me on to the another one, until I arrived at his door. He is a true gentleman and a very caring one.
