While the firm’s clients run the gamut, from small business owners to Fortune 500 companies and well-known public figures, the firm provides all of its clients with the same level of dedication and diligence that distinguishes its practice.

And for clients who prevail at trial, or following an appeal, the firm can perform prompt computerized searches of legal and web-related databases to identify the assets, debt, and equity that an opposing party maintains, thereby ensuring the collectability of any judgment obtained.
Mediation, Arbitration, and Alternative Dispute Resolution
While remaining committed to zealous advocacy, the firm also recognizes that, at various times, mediation, arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) may provide a more cost-effective, expeditious, and flexible option for resolving disputes. Mr. Riker has substantial experience acting as an advocate in mediation, arbitration, and ADR forums, and also has experience acting as a mediator/neutral to others seeking to resolve their disputes.
