Attorneys and Counselors at Law

Committed to Excellence and Integrity

The Torch Law Firm is committed to creating client-oriented results based on the circumstances unique to each situation. We call this conscious lawyering. The American legal system is, at its core, broken. What is missing is presence to the dynamics of human interaction which often leads to conflict among people. The American legal system resolves those conflicts, often at great expense measured in time and money. The Torch Law Firm creates the space for people to transform their conflicts into time and money if they choose to do so.

Conscious lawyering is not everyone’s choice. For those whose conflicts can only be resolved through a tribunal (whether it be through the courts, arbitration, mediation or some other form of dispute resolution), the Torch Law Firm also offers aggressive lawyering designed to achieve each client’s desired results. The Torch Law Firm is the choice for people who are open to considering options other than protracted, expensive litigation, and who are open to taking a look at how each person creates the results that they face in each moment.
