While our attorneys have a broad range of litigation experience, we believe that practice concentration is an integral part of successful outcomes in legal disputes. As a result, we have chosen to build a practice which concentrates on four precise areas of law: Trusts & Estates Litigation, Beneficiary Designation Disputes, Business Litigation and Disputes, and Contested Guardianships & Conservatorships. Our focus and knowledge in these areas helps to ensure that we are able to provide our clients with exceptional representation.
