Individualized Solutions to Complex Legal Problems

When you work with the lawyers at Coddington, Hicks & Danforth, you receive the personal attention you deserve. We get to know our clients, their concerns and vital goals so we can craft an individualized legal strategy to achieve optimal results. We guide clients to reduce the risk of costly litigation through legal counseling, education and training. When disputes arise, we are diligent in explaining the legal options available, including forms of alternative dispute resolution that can control costs and avoid protracted courtroom battles.

Nonetheless, from the beginning, we consider that a case might go to trial. This puts us in a position of strength in negotiations, mediation or arbitration. If a negotiated settlement does not protect our clients' rights, we are ready to provide aggressive advocacy in the courtroom to obtain the most favorable outcome.
