Our mission is to provide the highest quality legal counseling, deliberately tailored to the specific objectives of each client. In doing so, we recognize that the firm’s reputation and future are based not only on providing our clients with the best lawyer or law firm for the dispute at issue, but also on the results achieved for our clients and on the relationships we maintain with them.

Legal disputes can arise in almost every relationship, transaction, or business venture that we participate in. When a conflict arises that cannot be resolved through good faith negotiation, litigation is often the only remedy for resolving the conflict. The Medel Law Group will help you define your goals, will assist you in pre-lawsuit analysis and negotiation, and will advise you when litigation is the best option for achieving your goals. Whether or not your legal matters lead to the courtroom, we will address your specific needs aggressively, competently and efficiently.

Every person or business entity deserves the assistance of a lawyer who understands the intricacies and potential ramifications of their particular dispute. The Medel Law Group’s founder has litigated more than one hundred million dollars of disputes in a broad variety of settings, including litigation from both plaintiff and defense perspectives, and has developed effective strategies for advancing our clients’ interests that can be tailored to meet each particular client’s needs. Such experience ensures that our clients are provided superior representation at any stage in the litigation process from pre-lawsuit negotiations through trial and appellate argument.

As a boutique law firm, the Medel Law Group is often better suited to effectively serve our clients’ day-to-day business needs than larger local, national or multi-national law firms, and usually can do so at a substantial cost savings to our clients. However, the firm also maintains strategic alliances with other professionals, including attorneys, so that it is consistently capable of providing the resources necessary to litigate even the most complex, hotly contested disputes.
