The Riess LeMieux team is dedicated to effectively and economically representing the interests of its clients. Although the members of the firm have successfully tried numerous cases in state and federal court, the firm’s partners and associates actively seek to avoid or resolve disputes before litigation whenever possible. Riess LeMieux proactively addresses concerns about the increasing costs of litigation by creating the most cost-effective means of problem resolution without compromising the superior quality of its legal services. This always includes up-front budgeting and detailed case management as well as alternative billing methods.
