A significant portion of our legal practice is devoted to insurance defense work, so we are accustomed to protecting clients' interests while working within an insurance carrier's guidelines and expectations.

The issue of premises owners' liability for injuries occurring on their property is one that requires careful investigation and legal analysis. We endeavor to provide our clients with an early case assessment of their exposure to liability so they can decide the most successful approach to proceed, whether settlement or litigation. We also understand the variety of business interests at stake when it comes to developing a litigation plan. We make sure our client's interests are our first priority.
