Firm Philosophy

The Firm’s philosophy is to provide its clients with timely and cost effective representation in business disputes. The Firm is skilled in both resolving disputes without litigation, and when necessary, protecting client rights through litigation. Both Mr. Smithers and Ms. O’Hara have extensive trial and arbitration experience, and are alumni of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. The Firm offers a unique combination of legal skills, bringing the attorneys’ large law firm experience to a small, boutique practice providing superior, hands-on legal representation to their clients. The Firm is also active in the Santa Clara County legal community, and able to associate in the services of larger firms when necessary.
