Business Litigation First Testimonial Image

 "I have known William Dickerman for many years, first as my attorney, then as my friend and client. He is an extraordinarily competent attorney with a strong common-sense approach to business. I co-owned and operated a successful chain of sporting goods stores. My partner and I didn’t agree on how the business was to be run; the viability of the business was in jeopardy. Luckily, I hired Bill as my litigation attorney. My partner counter-sued, but Bill’s bull-dog tenacity and superior litigation skills scared the other side into submission. Bill’s negotiating prowess resulted in my being fairly compensated for my half of the business, and enabled my ex-partner to continue to operate the business thereafter. Since that first positive experience, I have frequently sought Bill’s legal advice on other business matters, and he has always been generous with his time and support. I have learned a lot from Bill over the years, and he has been an instrumental part of my business success."

Business Litigation Second Testimonial Image "Got the second [settlement] check. Thanks. We definitely achieved the best result that could have been expected. . . . I am glad I decided to fight. I also enjoyed meeting you and working with you. I learned a lot about the legal process, which I found quite interesting. Thank you for that![Opposing counsel’s] initial strategy was reasonable -- assume we will not do much to get solid evidence, take it to trial, and try to bamboozle a jury. Later, he tried another reasonable strategy -- litigate your opponent into submission.Things didn't work out since he just got unlucky and ended up facing you! I will always be grateful to you for how you handled this case and how you interacted with me regarding it. I know it could have ended up very differently if I had another attorney. . . ."

- G.N., Computer Scientist
