OUR VISION

Doing Great Work, for Great Clients, with Great People

 

It's as simple, and as hard, as that. When I started the firm in 1992, those were our goals and they remain our goals today. Since that time, the firm's ethics and reputation have garnered the respect of clients, the court and peers alike. The list of "A-class" clients has grown to an enviable level. The reputation we've developed through our litigation and arbitration successes enables us to realize the best possible results for all of our clients. But, more than anything, it's the people who work here and the people for whom we work that provide the energy and motivation for which we are best known.

 

Doing great work, for great clients, with great people. It's as simple, and as hard, as that!

 

Thanks for Visiting,

 

Tom Tisdale
