When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. That’s the trouble with many self-styled “litigators” — a one-size-fits-all approach that doesn’t take the client’s business into account. But at ASM, we’re “big toolbox” people, problem solvers that specialize in smart and effective solutions. Decades of industry experience means that we speak the language of construction. We understand the relationships, the contracts and the law, always keeping in mind how our client’s business works.

When a dispute arises, we know the pressure points and the strategies that will solve it quickly, early and inexpensively, before it spirals into litigation. Of course, some jobs call for a hammer. That’s in our toolbox too. We’re known and respected in state and federal courts in the Washington, DC metropolitan region and across the country, and we frequently appear before government bodies and private tribunals like the American Arbitration Association. No matter the court, we provide experienced, effective representation.
