Founded in 1994, SLS is large enough to handle the most complex litigation, but small enough to provide a level of personal service not found at stuffy large law firms. As a multi-specialty law firm, our trial attorneys have taken to verdict or arbitrated hundreds of cases; and won repeatedly. Our commitment to identifying the key issues and being prepared every step of the way, produces more favorable resolutions to avoid costly litigation, whenever feasible.
Since our founding, SLS’s focus has remained the same: Our Clients. Regardless of whether a case involves complex, commercial or construction high-stakes litigation, or small corporate transactions, no client or matter is trivial. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional legal talent and working tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.
Trial work is not for the timid. It is difficult. It takes skill. It takes organization and focus. It also takes creativity, hard work and perseverance. Most of all, trial work takes a team of dedicated attorneys and staff who know the law, can master the facts, and are effective at persuading a judge or jury. That’s what we do at SLS.
SLS commits its resources to each of our clients, with a goal of learning our clients’ business, digging into the facts and preparing early, for proven best results. At SLS, we believe in targeted discovery, attention to detail, and trial readiness; not wasting time and resources on issues that are not relevant to your needs and goals. With our focused approach to litigation, SLS maximizes value to our clients and achieves more cost-effective results. No wasted energy. No wasted effort.
