Aggressive Representation with a Personal Touch
Everyone with a legal problem or challenging legal situation initially feels that issues can be resolved in court with a lawsuit. However, lawsuits are expensive and time consuming and can drag on for months requiring many thousands of dollars.
“Generally speaking, when you talk about suing a person or a business in a legal dispute, you’re talking about a major investment of your time and money,” Eric Lanigan said. “But when you get right down to it, you want the right thing done for you in accordance to your rights and your legal ability to resolve that situation.
“If the law determines that your problem can only be resolved in court, then, the lawsuit will be handled completely, thoroughly, carefully with attention to detail, in a courtroom.
“If your issue can be resolved amicably, to your satisfaction without a lawsuit, then we will do that for you,” Eric said. “Some of the best victories are won before ever having to enter a courtroom.”

“If you’re in a no-win situation, we’re going to be straightforward with you and explain why something cannot be done or what your chances are in court.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re a one man shop, a family business, or a 100-employee company; you want an attorney who’s not going to back down. If you have to go to court to fight for yourself or for your business your lawyer has to have the expertise to get the results you need and expect.
