While individual attorneys handle numerous matters in various practice areas, the firm has developed four practice groups for managing and coordinating the firm’s practice areas. The attorneys, paralegals and legal assistants within a practice group work collaboratively in a team environment to provide our clients with high quality legal services.

The firm’s Advocacy practice group coordinates and manages the firm’s Litigation, Civil Rights / Administrative Law and Zoning / Land Use practice areas. This Practice Group focuses on being a zealous advocate for the firm’s clients who need representation that is adversarial in nature or involves some type of formal legal proceeding. The group works together to develop case strategy, analyze legal issues and prepare cases for trial. By meeting regularly, the Practice Group is able to maximize the extensive litigation experience of the attorneys, paralegals and legal assistants who regularly represent clients and advocate for their rights. Partner Dwight Yoder serves as the leader for this Practice Group.

The Advocacy Group also provides regular seminars and presentations on relevant topics.
