THE TEAM APPROACH

In special cases, Mr. Nobles and Mr. DeCarolis join forces to represent a single client. When the stakes are high and the case is headed to trial, having two seasoned trial attorneys is advantageous. Beyond just having a second set of eyes and ears engaged in the case, numerous hours are spent collaborating as a team, investigating the case, strategizing, evaluating the defense, advising and preparing our client, consulting our experts, preparing witnesses and reviewing every detail of the case from start to finish.

Hired together, we combine our extensive trial skills and experience to offer our clients a level of advocacy and representation unique to our firm.
