Practice Areas


Law-firm disputes can be among the most complex and strongly fought forms of litigation. Trials often depend on information and explanations provided by outside experts. Engaging the services of an expert witness who brings an impartial, respected voice to a case can make the difference between a winning and losing verdict.

Our attorneys are frequently called upon to serve as expert witnesses in disputes and break-ups on behalf of our clients. We often:

  • Act in the capacity of both the plaintiff (client) and defendant (lawyer) in legal malpractice cases involving breach of fiduciary duties and other claims
  • Prepare affidavits of merit and expert reports
  • Provide testimony in depositions and at bench trials and jury trials

Fee-related disputes that surface between individual lawyers, law firms and other parties in connection with legal proceedings are delicate and complicated. We resolve these issues with sensitivity and diplomacy.
