Who we are.
When it is in our client’s best interest, we strongly encourage them to consider negotiation, mediation, of collaboration when it is beneficial to them. Some legal problems can be resolved much more efficiently outside the courtroom. Our experience and expertise in settling disputes outside of court could mean the difference between a lengthy and costly trial process and a quick resolution. That being said, we are not afraid to fight for your rights when other methods have been exhausted. We have both the expertise and experience in the courtroom to protect you and your best interests.
At Bours & Lucero, we don’t rest easy until you can rest easy. We will keep you informed of the status of your case and ensure that you are fully involved and aware of all decisions that affect your case. We give clear explanations of the law and what it means to your unique situation.
We promptly answer phone calls and emails and are more than happy to discuss the details of your case at any time.
