We appreciate the trauma of the effects of possible negligence and conversely the effects on the defendant, personally, financially and professionally, and handle cases in the utmost professional way.
We are pro-active in negotiation and settlement and consider alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration, before embarking on litigation.
