Litigation Attorneys & Dispute Resolution

Business disputes are a common, and often mismanaged, cost of doing business. Our litigation attorneys realize the impact protracted litigation can have on business productivity, and will actively seek ways to provide a vigorous and efficient resolution to business disputes. At Schnelker, Rassi & McConnell, our attorneys actively listen to our clients’ problems; strive to understand their concerns, and tirelessly work to obtain great results that make economic and business sense.

Sometimes that means getting a quick settlement by paying nuisance-money.  Other times, it means vigorously pursuing a client’s rights in the courtroom and battling an opponent on principle.  Regardless of the method chosen, the key is that our litigators strive to understand a client’s objective, set forth a strategy that makes sense to obtain that objective, execute that strategy, and most importantly, win.
