During the litigation process, we continuously work with our clients in order to determine what course of action is best suited to their needs, whether it be motion practice, negotiation, mediation, or proceeding to trial and verdict.

Our practice is conducted in accordance with the Recommended Case Handling Guidelines for Insurers, as promulgated by The Defense Research Institute. We have the flexibility to coordinate billing with all electronic billing formats. Our billing conforms to the Uniform Task Based Management System as required. Billing cycles are tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients.
