Blue Mountain Law attorneys have over three decades of combined legal experience spanning a wide variety of practice areas, including litigation and government relations.  Our goal, first and foremost, is to be Counselors at Law and ensure that our clients are fully aware of their legal matter and position so they can make informed decisions for themselves, their family, and business interest.  Such an approach allows us to advise and aid in the planning of our clients estates, businesses, and family concerns.  In matters of conflict, seeking justice in the government courts can be difficult, very expensive, and highly unpredictable; and that is why we provide counseling and mediation services that result in sensible and sound resolutions.  Although we are aware that not every conflict can be resolved by negotiation and mediation, in our experience, we have found that most situations can be resolved by bringing the parties to the negotiating table.  While experience is important, the ability to communicate effectively and find acceptable and cost effective solutions is paramount to our mission.  



holistic law

Blue Mountain Law provides a holistic approach to law practice.  What is Holistic Law?  Holistic Law is an approach, or style of practice, that focuses on the whole person and the whole of the problem as a way of finding more healthy and sustainable solutions to legal problems.  The whole problem or picture to a holistic lawyer would include more stakeholders, a broader focus on the "other side" and their contribution to the problem.  

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add “within the limits of the law” because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
— Thomas Jefferson
