BFC represents our firm’s individual and family clients in a wide range of litigation and other adverse proceedings, by aggressively prosecuting their claims and by zealously defending them against claims of others. 

Our litigation attorneys work closely with our clients to determine promptly whether litigation is truly necessary, or whether there are more favorable options for resolving their disputes.   We comprehensively assess all of the facts and legal issues unique to each case, and work closely with our clients to understand and strive to achieve all of their goals.  We continually evaluate the best way to manage and deploy our clients’ resources and our own.   If a lawsuit is appropriate, we immediately analyze when it must be filed in order to safely comply with any statute of limitation or other deadline that may be applicable.  And we stay focused on pursuing a cost-effective strategy geared towards attaining a successful outcome.

We have extensive experience in various forums — state and federal court, arbitration, mediation, and government agencies – and with a wide range of proceedings, including emergent applications, actions seeking injunctive relief, as well as more traditional litigation.   While we always strive to achieve a settlement that successfully accomplishes our clients’ objectives, our litigators will be prepared to argue their case at trial if an earlier resolution is not possible. 

If you or a member of your family has been sued or threatened with a lawsuit or other adverse proceeding – or if you are considering whether to pursue any legal claims of your own – we invite you to email Cheryl Siegel (,  John Middleton (,  or phone us at 201-612-5200
