OUR PRACTICE AREAS

“Robert Lawrence has represented me and my company in ongoing scorched earth litigation – including two trials — over the last 7 years. I trust his judgment completely.”

Raymond Harper. Owner, Aurora Western Pacific Advisors

“David Bartels provided the company great insights through some very difficult times. His hard work and effort allowed the company to move forward and stay focused on its core values, resulting in the most profitable quarters in its history as opposed to the problems of the past. I would recommend and hire David again.”
