Success for CSA’s clients means more than just “winning.” We strive to understand our clients’ businesses and interests and provide clients with the information necessary to make both tactical and strategic decisions that are both time-sensitive and cost-sensitive. We employ state-of-the-art legal technology systems to support our clients wherever our work takes us. We evaluate and counsel on preventative measures and, if possible, litigation avoidance, as we identify avenues for case resolution, where appropriate, that promote quick and fair resolution. Our approach to legal matters and litigation plus our business and trial experience means we stand ready to handle whatever conflict, crisis, or issue might arise and to do so with integrity, efficiency, and economic sense. Accordingly, CSA’s achievements include negotiated voluntary non-suits, dismissals through pre-trial motion practice, and outright defense verdicts in cases that required trial.
