BMF Announces New Governance Structure

We are excited to announce a new governance structure for our firm, which will continue to strengthen our overarching strategic objective to remain independent while providing the high-quality, proactive service you expect and deserve.

Effective results for complex situations.

Even the best trial attorneys need expert assistance in addressing and presenting complex business, financial and accounting issues. Our experience in litigation support can be invaluable in gathering, organizing and interpreting financial data for lawyers, judges, and juries.

Our litigation support team has extensive experience serving as expert witnesses and consultants in disputes that lead to litigation, arbitration or mediation by a thorough investigation of the details.

We understand the process and are accustomed to working under the same conditions and time constraints as trial lawyers.
