Your business objectives guide our litigation approach.

Each matter is staffed with an experienced and lean team of attorneys and paralegals. Our philosophy is to individualize each case and work aggressively to be in position to evaluate early on whether a case should be identified as a candidate for trial or for efforts devoted to satisfactory resolution of the case. Through this approach, along with focused discovery and trial preparation strategies, we strive to add value to the services we provide. Additionally, our central location in the Midwest gives us the geographic proximity to litigate cases regionally and nationally while allowing us to offer highly competitive Midwest rates on cases filed from coast to coast.

We are dedicated to promoting product liability issues significant to product manufacturers. We actively participate in the Product Liability Advisory Council (PLAC), the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC), Defense Research Institute (DRI), and similarly focused organizations within national and local bar associations.
