Our website has references to the sport of rowing. It is that sense of teamwork, determination and perseverance that makes our lawyers so successful in court. It is this "commitment to excellence" that characterizes each of our lawyers.

Clients served by CVL range from individuals and small businesses to large corporations and institutions. Regardless of size, each client is equally important and treated with respect. Clients typically appreciate becoming part of a "team" to solve difficult legal issues, and CVL understands that long-term success results from developing client trust and satisfaction.
