Areas of Practice


Commercial Litigation

We help businesses identify and implement legal solutions to business problems.  Lawsuits, arbitration, or nonjudicial resolution of disputes with other businesses or individuals is sometimes necessary to support and defend the companies at the heart of our local economy.  We use our expertise to resolve these impediments so our clients can get back to work.

Copyright & Trademark Development and DEFENSE

Our clients have amazing ideas, and we help protect those ideas. Whether you are registering your first trademark for a new company or in need of assistance to protect your IP from copycats, we can help.


Business Formation & Contracts

Whether you are starting a new business, or facing new challenges, the firm can help find the best strategy to help you achieve growth, lower your risk of future liability, and build the framework that fits your needs. Flat rate formation and staffing agreements are well suited to organizations of all sizes, as well as for profit and non-profit clients. 

Estate Planning

The firm offers flat rate estate planning for families, individuals, and business owners. This includes trusts, succession planning for businesses, and counsel for your peace of mind.
