1.  Six Attorneys with Varied Areas of Legal Focus

Lawyers in Lafayette is a group of 6 affiliated attorneys whose separate practices focus on Solution based pre litigation strategies and problem resolution.  When disputes do not resolve, we have extensive qualifications in Litigation involving Business Disputes, Real Estate law, Personal Injury and Criminal Defense.  If we cannot personally provide you with the highest level of expertise we can refer you to an attorney that we trust.

Our team of lawyers and paralegals are among the most qualified you will find.  We have real estate brokers, an SEC Registered Investment Advisor, a licensed chiropractor, an MBA, the former (interim) District Attorney of Contra Costa County, a former Napa School Board member and an immigration lawyer totally fluent in Russian and Ukranian.

2. Problem Solving

As “Problem Solvers”, we look to mitigate conflict and resolve disputes with negotiation coming from a position of knowledge, understanding and strength.  Our “strength” is based in part upon our unmatched jury trial experience.   The ability to “go the distance” is often the key to a fair resolution.   Arguably, our trial experience is unmatched in the Bay Area.  Our trial to verdict (per attorney) estimates are:

Daniel Horowitz (200+); Tom Kensok (100+); Dan Russo (300+); Doug MacMaster (80+)

These litigation results include multiple jury trial and arbitration verdicts in excess of One Million dollars.

The medical profession has its own peculiar set of landmines and professional dead ends that we can help you navigate.  That “dream contract” may have surprise clauses that contradict the warm & fuzzy hugs and handshakes that led to your agreement to enter a partnership.  We will analyze the contracts for you.  Conflicts at the hospital are often engineered as part of a larger (negative plan).  PIP’s are usually a carrot that lead only to a stick.  We can advise when a PIP is proposed.  If you are a witness to an arbitration, contacted by the Medical Board, arrested for a DUI, we can advise and help.

Physicians and other Medical Professionals rely upon Lawyers in Lafayette to defend their partnership interests, negotiate during insurance disputes, provide Medical Board representation, address licensing issues and advise during opiate prescription audits and other administrative inquiries.  The office has an extensive record of success in partner arbitration, litigation and defending physicians targeted in peer review proceedings.
