In today’s practice, options other than litigation in the courtroom are available for almost all representations. Criminal cases are not resolved by mediation or arbitration but many other types of issues certainly are. Specifically, family law cases (divorce, custody, support) and personal injury cases are resolved by mediation in increasing percentages. Other matters – contract disputes generally – may be resolved by mediation or arbitration. If litigation is the only avenue for resolution, the firm’s attorneys are all experienced in the courtroom and have achieved significant successes as trial lawyers.
