What is This?

A simple option provided to new clients is the chance to get big picture advise on your situation for a fixed fee as an initial consultation. Many times you just need to know what is going on, not to enter into an extensive research situation costing thousands of dollars. I will spend one hour with you at a reduced rate to explain your situation and the options you have. This is like having an attorney on staff for quick questions and general guidance on business and legal issues.


I can provide services to resolve business disputes with partners, members, third parties, vendors or any commercial situation needing resolution. Mediation is usually non binding and is an attempt to arrive at a settlement of the dispute. The Mediation takes place at my office with each party (and their attorneys, if appropriate) and I attempt to discuss solutions in a confidential manner.


If the mediation fails or if the parties desire to provide for a binding decision you can schedule an arbitration. An arbitration is like a trial that is done in a private, confidential setting. Each party presents their side of the story with exhibits and legal arguments and I will determine findings of fact and arrive at a decision on the case.

Discovery Requirements

Discovery is a broad subject that casts a wide net and the Rules of Civil Procedure permit discovery into any matter, not privileged, which is relevant to the subject matter involved in the pending action.  The following are procedures in place as part of the discovery process.

  • Interrogatories — These are written questions given to the other side that must be answered under oath.
  • Request for Production — This is a request to provide documents.
  • Depositions — Testimony given under oath taken at the attorney’s office. Read more
