We provide quality work to resolve your legal issues. We analyze the information you provide, identify relevant issues and additional information needed, and promptly provide our candid legal advice. We evaluate your situation using our education, experience, and judgment and the understood legal and business realities of your situation.
We are particularly experienced in solving complex legal issues. We have substantial experience with complex litigation and insurance, environmental, contract, construction, property, and employment law disputes. We regularly handle matters outside of and prior to litigation, are prepared to litigate through trial, and have substantial appellate experience. We frequently have practiced out of state at the request of our clients.
We apply more than 40 years of business, legal, and life experience to solve client legal problems. Our work has included complex litigation involving millions of pages of records, dozens of parties and attorneys, and hundreds of witnesses with a billion dollars at stake, to insurance, business and contract disputes, to trust and estate administration.
Our experience includes drafting contracts and insurance opinions, jury trials, arbitrations, mediations and facilitations, and appeals including winning arguments before the Michigan and West Virginia supreme courts. We like solving difficult legal issues. We frequently are retained by in-house counsel. We provide second opinions on complex matters and assist as additional trial counsel if a matter cannot be resolved. In unrelated cases, we defeated an insurance claim for nearly $10 million and an environmental claim for $1.5 million and secured a $3 million verdict and a $2 million arbitration award for our respective clients.
We frequently deal with scientific and technical issues and expert witnesses and are accustomed to simultaneous multijurisdictional disputes and litigation management issues.
