Litigation Evaluation And Counseling

Coaching To Help You Break The Cycle Of Seemingly Endless Litigation

When a dispute occurs, it can be life-changing. Many people act without hesitation. They take aggressive action to hold wrongdoers accountable and protect their own rights. It is only after months — or even years — of paying large legal bills that they come to realize the huge toll litigation has taken on them and their families.

The truth is that litigation takes a tremendous toll, both financial and emotional. Over years of court dates and legal briefs, the attorneys' fees add up – and take on a life of their own. So do the stresses that come with them. Sometimes people reach a point where they'd do almost anything for a fresh start. But how? How can a person resolve conflict when litigation has become a way of life? And, how do they take charge of their case when the attorney expects to be the one calling the shots for the client?

I can answer that.

As a litigator with more than 45 years of experience, as well as an arbitrator, mediator and former judge pro tem, I have extensive, in-depth knowledge of the dynamics of going to trial. I often use this knowledge to sit down with people for litigation counseling. I act as a coach for people who would like to take back the control they've lost over the litigation process.

I can help you:

  • Take control of runaway litigation
  • Tell you your options for resolving the conflict more effectively
  • Talk with your own lawyer to change direction
  • Break the cycle
