Professional service to our clients is our first and compelling priority.
A commitment to excellence in legal representation is the hallmark of our business practice. We have the ability, experience and resources to successfully counsel clients in an extensive variety of transactional and situational legal matters. Attorneys in the firm have negotiated complex transactions with national and even international implications. While the core of our practice is small and medium sized firms, we also have a long and accomplished history of service to companies with locations throughout North America. The firm is small enough to be responsive on a personal basis, but big enough to handle any business needs.
As a complement to our business practice, we have extensive experience in labor and employment law. We work closely with clients in a proactive fashion to avoid potential employment charges and litigation, and we have developed policies and practices tailored to identify and provide solutions to labor issues before they become serious claims. If litigation is necessary, we have the tools to aggressively represent our clients in all agencies and courts in an efficient, expeditious and economical way.
The firm has a strong traditional presence in trial work. Our attorneys have represented clients in litigation matters ranging from collection and foreclosure to complicated liability and insurance coverage actions involving dozens of parties. We have appeared in state and federal courts throughout Indiana and Michigan and we have more appellate experience than any other firm of our size in the area. We are committed to zealous advocacy for our clients, consistent with ethical and legal requirements. We recognize the value of clear communication of a client's position and the need for aggressive and immediate action, when necessary. We take pride in our professional reputation and our record of favorable results for our clients.
Estate planning and administration are other mainstays of our practice. We have developed a reputation throughout Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan for a high level of sophistication in working with financial experts and trust companies to assist clients in realizing their objectives of wealth transfer in the most efficient manner, while minimizing probate involvement and tax liability. When probate is necessary to administer estates of decedents, we have the resources and experience to efficiently shepherd the process through the courts for the purpose of preserving estate assets and minimizing client involvement.
