Litigation

We represent clients in a broad range of litigation matters. RKPT’s dedicated team of attorneys brings personalized attention and depth of knowledge to each and every matter we handle, whether representing a small business in a contract dispute, providing advice to an employer concerning a labor issue, assisting a creditor with a commercial collection matter, or pursuing a claim on behalf of an injured person.
