Choosing the Right Strategy

Pursuing or defending litigation on an all out basis is expensive. Before we recommend that strategy, our attorneys will carefully review the facts, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the other party's case.

In many cases, Eberhardt & Hale has achieved acceptable solutions through negotiation with the other party's counsel. Other options, short of a lawsuit, which can return good results include mediation and arbitration. If these techniques do not appear to have the potential for a successful outcome, our lawyers will pursue aggressive litigation of your case.

We will explain all of your options in detail, including the risks of a lawsuit and the costs of litigation. You will have the information you need to make intelligent decisions about your case.

Achieving a Successful Outcome

Sometimes the threat to pursue commercial litigation or the intention to aggressively defend it can induce the other party to come to an agreement. Our attorneys have many years experience in negotiation strategies and will attempt to resolve the matter short of a trial.

On the other hand, if a lawsuit cannot be avoided or if the financial stakes are such that it is absolutely necessary, Eberhardt & Hale will seek a successful resolution for you in court.
