National Experience | Local Roots

Photo of All Staff and Attorneys

Our practice grew out of a richly diverse and successful local firm.  We have maintained our local roots, having found that they inform and strengthen our national practice with practical experience, emphasis on individual client care and a holistic approach to solving our client’s legal problems in the context of their lives. Whether you are from North Idaho, Seattle, California, New York or elsewhere, we believe that a practical approach to solving legal problems in the context of your life-goals serves you well.

Our national practice has equally informed our local firm.  Technological growth in the digital age has interconnected the legal world as it has many others.  Practicing law in local isolation is no longer an option.  There are too many national resources that apply to local legal problems. By leveraging our national experience and connections along with the latest technological advances, we can provide cutting-edge legal representation for all clients.

Help for Business Clients

We are a one-stop shop for business owners. From business formation services to corporate counsel, general advice, mergers and acquisitions, protection of your trade secrets, regulatory compliance and complex commercial litigation, we offer the comprehensive legal support you require.

We use creative fee structures for economic representation, including contingency and hybrid contingency/hourly.  Clients with potentially valuable business claims turned away by traditional firms demanding high retainers up-front and high hourly fees find economic representation with our firm under alternate fee structures.  We have the resources, skill and willingness to take the risk along with our clients in the right case.

Help for Individuals Facing Difficult Challenges

Individuals come to us facing difficult challenges.  They are confronting a dark history of child sexual abuse, suffering serious injuries, struggling with a wrongful job, business or retirement benefit loss, or some other legal challenge.  We believe the law can have a profoundly positive impact on you, whether we solve your legal problem by fighting to advance your legal rights, defending or negotiating the best result in settlement.

We are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our clients. We are conscious of the fact that our work may have a profound impact on our clients and their families. When we choose to take a case, we do so with an understanding of what is at stake and with a deep commitment to the client. You can rely on us to help you find the right solution for your legal challenge, whether that means fighting, defending, or negotiating the best result. We are privileged to serve our clients.

Help for Municipalities

Our lawyers advise municipalities on open meeting laws and provide experienced representation in matters pertaining to eminent domain and other aspects of public municipal business. We recognize that municipalities are run by public servants dedicated to helping their communities.  We believe they are entitled to the same client-centered representation as all clients.
