To schedule your appointment on any commercial litigation matter, contact us by phone or e-mail.

Personalized, Customized Legal Services: We understand that most clients are concerned about the lack of control they feel when involved in litigation. Our attorneys will work closely with you on every case to make sure that the litigation strategy pursued is the most effective way to reach your goal, and that you understand the risks and benefits of that strategy.

Cost Effective

Our attorneys strive to keep the costs of the litigation within your budget. In most cases, an appropriate litigation strategy is to aggressively prosecute or defend a case by preparing for trial, while maintaining open lines of communication as to settlement. This approach often leads to favorable settlements of cases prior to trial. In other cases, the appropriate litigation strategy is to pursue arbitration, mediation or other alternative dispute mechanisms. Our litigation attorneys explore and discuss these various alternatives with you prior to and during litigation.

You Are In Control

We are committed to keeping you informed and, to the extent possible, in control of the litigation process. The department is structured to handle the broad range of commercial litigation disputes facing our business clients, from simple foreclosure actions to complicated trademark and franchise litigation.

It is our goal at Pohl & Short to satisfy all of your business law needs. Sometimes our representation involves only litigation matters. At other times we provide litigation services in conjunction with other legal representation. We coordinate your representation to avoid duplication and inefficiencies.

You Will Have One Attorney Responsible for Your Legal Matters

We want you to feel confident that your matter is being handled properly and efficiently, to be kept informed of its status and to have a lead attorney who is responsible and knowledgeable for all of your matters. This defines our business boutique law firm and contributes to your success and the success of our firm.
