Areas of Practice
We're committed to working with our clients to develop creative and cost-effective solutions and we have experience in an array of legal arenas. The firm's core practice, though, is concentrated in the needs of small- to medium-sized business, both in the office and in the courtroom. Thus, in an effort to maintain a skill-base that provides our clients with a cost-effective solution to the need for general corporate counsel, we focus on legal work involving litigation, business counseling, real estate, insurance coverage, and employment law.

Two areas of practice in which we work in something of a different capacity are trial consulting and ADR. Our trial consulting work has involved us in writing and editorial work for three national treatises on the subject: Jury Selection: Strategy & Science (by Ted A. Donner and Richard Gabriel), Blue's Guide to Jury Selection, and Jury Selection: The Law, Art and Science of Selecting a Jury. Ted Donner is both a member of the Board of Directors for the American Society of Trial Consultants Foundation and an Adjunct Professor at Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where he teaches classes in the Law of Jury Selection, and both Ted Donner and Melissa Piwowar have worked with Richard Gabriel and other consultants on the legal issues that arise in many of high-profile jury trials, including the O.J. Simpson, Phil Spector and Casey Anthony criminal trials.

We're also consistently involved in ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution), both because it is often the best course to pursue for our clients in litigation and because of our work on the Attorney's Practice Guide to Negotiations (by Ted A. Donner). Our offices provide a unique facility in DuPage County for the mediation of legal disputes and the Roundtable Program we've developed for the Attorney's Practice Guide to Negotiations enables us to continue learning from and work with many of the best lawyers from around the country.
