Jil does this by fashioning the most favorable and timely resolution to your matter, together with you.

By recognizing trial as a last resort – having extensive trial experience in matters that have gone to jury trial, trial by a judge, or hearing before an arbitrator or panel — Jil’s focus is on strongly advocating for you in a manner designed to successfully resolve the matter before trial. Jil makes extensive use of mediation and arbitration (and is a mediator and arbitrator herself), as less expensive and time-consuming alternatives to trials.
