We maintain a broad civil practice in the state and federal courts in Vermont.
Our trial work ranges from winning damages for property loss, to recovering for personal injuries, to remedying broken contracts. We handle cases involving real-estate titles and tax matters, deals gone south and promises broken. We represent employees who have been unfairly treated in the workplace, and defend employers wrongly charged with misconduct.
Our goal is to achieve your goal. We search for solutions. We settle cases when a negotiated agreement achieves your objectives. We try cases before juries and judges when the claim cannot be fairly settled. We understand that litigation can be an expensive and grinding process. We look for efficient ways to cut through the delays and successfully resolve the claim.
We provide counseling for insured parties in disputes over insurance coverage. We litigate coverage claims when the insurance company fails to honor its obligations.
We provide free consultations and attentive evaluation of personal injury and employment claims.
We represent property owners, public bodies and citizen groups in environmental and land-use disputes. We maintain an extensive practice before the Environmental Division of the Vermont Superior Court in zoning and regulatory appeals.
We represent property owners and public bodies in real-estate tax appeals contests. We represent corporations and shareholders in governance and valuation disputes.
We brief and argue cases on appeal to the Vermont Supreme Court and in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Examples of our appellate work may be found here.
Please note that we do not handle criminal or family court cases, but we assist our clients in finding other counsel in these matters.
