We recognize that lawsuits against professionals involve considerations beyond those
found in other type of claims. Not only is there the outrage of being sued and
having one's professional competency challenged, there is the very real threat to one's
standing and future in the profession. In addition, while insurance is
available in most cases, there is usually a substantial finance exposure in the form of
deductibles. As a result, we welcome alternative dispute resolution (ADR) venues as
a practical method of addressing the high economic and non-economic costs of litigation.
We stand ready and able to deal with these sensitive matters, addressing the needs
of all parties, while defending our clients.
