Earlier on in my career, I had been a trial lawyer for a large government office and later a managing partner for a mid-size private law firm. Since 1994, I have developed a smaller but extremely efficient and capable litigation team. We have handled cases against large corporate entities with unlimited legal resources such as Ford Motor Company, Nissan, Yamaha, and Dow Chemical. Despite the daunting opposition, we prevailed in each of those cases. I am confident we can do the job for you.
