Dispute resolution can be achieved using many different approaches. The lawyers at the firm’s Princeton law office work with clients to determine the best method for resolving each individual legal matter. If legal expenses are a concern, arbitration or mediation is often used to reach agreements in a timely and cost-effective manner. Some cases, however, call for litigation and the particular skills of a trial lawyer. Cases that are litigated are diligently prepared by the firm’s experienced trial attorneys and are argued in court with passion and tenacity.
