What Makes Us Different


Legal Services


Filing a lawsuit is rarely the best "first option."  Mr. Widmeyer believes that satisfactorily resolving a legal dispute is nearly always best achieved by giving clients sound legal advice as to their rights, duties, and litigation risks, and then proceeding accordingly.  He believes that clients are nearly always best served by being guided in making appropriate risk assessments, cost-benefit analyses, and sound business decisions based thereon.   Mr. Widmeyer has more than 35 years of civil trial experience; the variety of the cases he has tried or settled is comprehensive.  This wide depth and breadth of knowledge and experience give him an ability to analyze a client's legal situation from several perspectives, often suggesting a remedy which had not occurred to the client.  Mr. Widmeyer no longer actively litigates cases, but prefers instead to counsel clients and, whenever possible, achieve satisfactory results without the necessity of filing a law suit.  If a client's needs cannot be met without filing suit, Mr. Widmeyer will refer a client to a list of litigation attorneys without recommending one over the others.
