While litigating cases will always be our focus, we have responded to our clients’ needs for more comprehensive litigation-related services. We regularly conduct seminars and workshops for clients on an array of topics as wide ranging as our areas of expertise. Upon request, we will prepare a presentation on a topic of particular interest to any existing or prospective client. In addition, we regularly publish newsletters and handbooks on various topics to assist our clients in making decisions regarding claims handling and litigation management. We also routinely update clients on changes in the law that may affect their business.
We are ever mindful of the cost of litigation to our clients and, for that reason, have worked with clients to explore alternative billing arrangements tailored to meet a client’s individual or corporate needs. The Firm has not only been responsive to client requests for alternative billing arrangements, but has been proactive and innovative in designing alternative arrangements which are mutually beneficial for the Firm and our clients.
In this age of advancing technology, the Firm is proud of its technological capabilities. We have the ability to communicate electronically with clients to promote free exchange of thoughts on any given matter. Our technological abilities also extend to meeting any specific billing, timekeeping or record keeping requirement of a client. The investments we have made in our technology infrastructure reflect our knowledge that our clients demand and deserve the best service we can provide.

He was an active supporter of St. Joseph's Prep and was awarded the Alumnus of the Year Award in 1999 and the Rev. Charles Schnorr, SJ '37 Service Award in 2005. He retired from the practice of law in 2004.
