Palo Alto Litigation & Dispute Resolution Attorneys


When our clients encounter serious conflicts involving serious losses or threats, our experienced advocates at Gilfix & La Poll offer a range of dispute resolution services, from evaluation to negotiation to court representation.

Conflicts might involve a will, trust, or conservatorship, insurance coverage issue, investment or business or real estate disaster, or elder abuse. With over 30 years of experience, we have honed our expertise in dealing with such disputes.

Our litigation team works hard to resolve disputes informally when appropriate, pursuing peace as well as justice, whether as advocates or as mediators, especially when long-term relationships are in the mix. However, aggressive action is sometimes needed, and then our team takes aggressive legal action.
