Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution


Litigation has long been an integral part of our practice at Ervin Cohen & Jessup LLP. We have earned our reputation and our clients’ trust as excellent trial and appellate lawyers by obtaining outstanding results in both state and federal courts, and we get those results in a cost-effective manner.

We spend just as much time and energy focused on resolving disputes without litigation through the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques. Negotiation, arbitration and mediation are tools our lawyers use, before or in conjunction with litigation, to maximize our client’s recoveries, minimize or eliminate their exposure, and achieve their individual objectives for the resolution of the dispute. Our eyes are always kept on the prize—best serving the client’s business interests.
