Regardless of the issue that is between you and another business, between you and your business partners, or even between family members, we can help you have a good conversation that will make it much less likely that you will need to hire a lawyer. Or, if the dispute has already escalated to a lawsuit, we can help you figure out how to settle it quickly and with less stress and expense than litigation.
Clients (with the assistance of their lawyers, if desired) get to talk about the situation on their own terms. They are invited to say whatever they want to communicate to the other party, and ask whatever questions they need answered in order to move forward. Especially in cases that concern financial matters, Just Resolutions helps clients make the best possible decisions about how to resolve a stressful situation successfully. Most often, within a few hours, clients arrive at a settlement they are truly satisfied with.
We focus on resolving conflict so that you can get back to what you do best!
