Overview

Most clients prefer to avoid litigation, so our first step is to counsel our clients about how to achieve their objectives without the risk or expense of litigation. But if litigation is necessary, PKA’s extensive experience allows us to effectively pursue our clients’ objectives. Whether it’s a small case or a multi-million dollar one, we approach it in the same way—focusing on each client personally to deliver the best possible result.

PKA’s expertise is competitive with the largest law firms in the country, but we exceed our client expectations by providing personalized solutions at reasonable rates. Throughout every step of the litigation process, we advise clients of the appropriate strategy as well as risks and benefits.

Our extensive experience in both commercial litigation and commercial transactions allows us to analyze each case from every perspective…our clients as well as that of opposing counsel and the judge, in order to bring it to a successful resolution. The result — we are able to meet our clients’ objectives with creative, practical and efficient solutions that protect our clients’ interests.
