I approach litigation with an eye towards trial because it's necessary; trials often do happen. But I also believe that the majority of litigation cases should settle.
Joe Novak is a member of Robinson & Henry’s Litigation & Real Estate Teams. Joe helps clients who have business, civil, and real estate disputes. A history major at the University of Northern Colorado, he followed his undergraduate degree with a Juris Doctor from Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.
“I chose to go to law school so that I can provide assistance to people in times of need,” Joe said.
Having a dispute that rises to the level of potential litigation causes stress and anxiety. Joe helps relieve some of that burden by offering reasoned methods to his clients’ cases. He focuses on approaches that will result in the best and most efficient outcome possible, while taking into account risk, budget, and strategies.
Additionally, Joe stays current on trending legal issues and analyses to preempt potential legal pitfalls in advancing business interests.
