Some of our Practice Areas

Litigation

Sometimes striking hard and fast is the best way to go. However, there are trip-wires everywhere – we will show you how to get the best out of the civil litigation system.

Estate Law

The value and complexity of most estates are increasing. It is worth retaining an independent lawyer to draft a will or act in an estate dispute.

Insurance Law

Insurance affects almost all people and businesses.  As our founder is a retired insurance adjuster, we have unique capabilities to extract what clients want out of insurers.
