High Conflict and the Complex – The Next Steps
Qualifications: High conflict matters demand an attorney who is smart, and has grit. Complex matters demand an attorney who can strategize, see the big picture, and is detail-oriented. These are not skills a law school or academics provide. These are skills inherent in the person, and they need to be skills in the attorney you seek for high-conflict or complex matters.
Financially Savvy: Larose Law attorneys have an emphasis in finance. There is a lot of math in what we do. We review a lot of financial records. At times we may have to explain the numbers to a Judge. If we don’t know what we are talking about, then, how can we get favorable court decisions? If we don’t know the financials better than the other side, then, how can we win at settlement? Our due diligence begins with knowing the financial details better than the other side.
