We understand small business because we are a small business. You know your business; our job is to handle the legalities. We form family businesses including LLCs, partnerships, S-corps, and non-profits.
Business requires negotiating and drafting understandable agreements to accomplish your goal. Businesses need legal advice along the way to keep things running smoothly. We help anticipate and avoid problems. We help start, buy, or sell a business. We keep business in compliance with government regulation.
Business disputes often lead to litigation. Prosecuting or defending a lawsuit requires an upfront, sober weighing of cost, benefit, and risk. Litigation requires forecasting odds and predicting outcomes. Negotiation and settlement discussions along the way are always a must. Mediation and court settlement conference are always options.
Sometimes litigation goes to trial. We are trial lawyers. We go to court almost daily. We are comfortable in a courtroom. We regularly try cases to judges and juries. Winning a lawsuit is driven by preparation and by how your opponent perceives your skill in a courtroom. We try to keep your case out of court. But if your case goes to court we know how to try it.

I don’t want a lawyer to tell me what I can’t do. I hire him to tell me how to do what I want to do.
