The basic philosophy of this firm is to require our adversary to react to us, as opposed to us reacting to them. This is done by taking a positive, aggressive approach in the discovery process, obtaining information from outside sources, and determining whether the matter is more likely to be tried or settled. This immediately signals to our adversary that, whether it is a case to be settled or tried, he knows that he has his work ahead of him. This effective and efficient utilization of time, also results in overall cost savings, and with the knowledge and experience of our construction defect litigation team, favorable verdicts and settlements for our clients.
