CourtroomThe Law Offices of Michael E. Zapin, will usually make a final, good faith attempt to amicably resolve your legal issue outside of court. At the risk of painfully stating the obvious, sometimes the most cost-effect measure is to use counsel to reach a “middle ground” or a compromise - that you may not have even considered -  in order to avoid the uncertainties and expense of litigation. Naturally, this depends on the nature of the dispute and just how "far apart" you and the other party are with respect to the dispute. Be assured that we will give you an honest assessment of the merits of your particular claim (if you are the party that needs to file suit) and we will handle your matter zealously, whether we are prosecuting your claim(s) or defending against the claims of another party. Our business is defending your business.

Of course if settlement isn't feasible, or if you are on the receiving end of a complaint, you will need experienced litigation counsel on your side.  The Law Offices of Michael E. Zapin has a diverse skill-set, more than twenty years of practical experience both in and out of the courtroom, and has successfully prosecuted and defended claims on both the trial and appellate court levels.
