Compassionate Advocates

We have an extensive background advocating for our clients' rights. In 2003, attorney Mitchell Katine was one of the lawyers who brought Lawrence v. Texas to the U.S. Supreme Court. In a landmark and precedent-setting decision, the court declared sodomy laws unconstitutional throughout the United States.

We also compassionately advocate for clients who are HIV-positive or who have full-blown AIDS. We fight to protect them from discrimination in the workplace and in their daily lives while they seek to obtain vital medical treatment.

Mediation — an Alternative to Litigation

Given the time, expense and stress associated with a trial, sometimes litigation is not the most time- or cost-effective legal option. Alternative dispute resolution methods such as arbitration, negotiation or mediation may be much better-suited for you. Mitchell Katine understands the importance of mediation — he has been certified as a mediator since 1992. We are available to handle mediations involving all types of legal issues.
