"Litigants often find themselves searching for the most ‘aggressive’ lawyer, but what they get is a bull in china shop, while they’re left footing the bill. The best litigation practice strikes a balance between zealous representation with a constant eye on negotiation to efficiently meet the client’s expectations.” – Alicia P. Chalumeau
