Our attorneys have tried multi-million dollar commercial real estate cases, international arbitration matters, loan and guaranty matters, commercial landlord-tenant matters and all types of litigation.
However, the attorneys at Hecht Walker know that many cases should never be tried. Many cases should be resolved early to save time, money, and stress. However, the key to resolving cases early is retaining counsel that the community of legal professionals know can try a case and try a case well. We present that experience for you. The trial team is led by a former Assistant District Attorney, State Senator, and the 2014 Nominee for Attorney General for the State of Georgia for his party.
More Than Litigation
In addition to litigation, the attorneys at Hecht Walker have been lead counsel in hundreds of successful mediations and alternative dispute resolutions. The key to mediation and alternative dispute resolution is preparation, proper presentation of particular evidence, and a well composed negotiating plan created before entering the mediation or other alternative dispute forum. If you want to resolve a case, both sides have to scare the other and find a good business solution for all parties. At Hecht Walker, we work hard to find the middle ground in alternative dispute resolutions that results in a successful conclusion and continued success for our clients.

In addition, we pride ourselves on researching the law and having a knowledgeable recommendation for our clients to make calculated decisions to their benefit. Strategic advice and weighing the pros and cons of a legal decision are the keys to a successful business strategy and to protecting one’s self or business from particular liabilities. We want to put our clients in their best position to take on oncoming business opportunities at lower risk ratios. Each client has a different tolerance for risks, but we try to present a positive shield or better way to reduce those risks in the future.
