Ideas That Guide Us


Abraham Lincoln often spoke about lawyers and the law. He said “Law is nothing else but the best reason, of wise men, applied for ages to the transactions and business of mankind.” The daily comings and goings of consumers and businesses necessarily yield mistakes, errors, and downright theft. Lawyers utilize the power structure of the law and the courts to remedy such mistakes and obtain justice.  At Cornerstone, we're ready to fight for you.  We're in court regularly and consider it an honor to represent our clients.   

Abraham Lincoln also wrote “discourage litigation . . . persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can.”  At Cornerstone, we believe those words to be wise and as true today as they were when Lincoln wrote them.  We live in an increasingly litigious society.  We're always prepared to win in the courtroom, but we realize that settlement often presents a value to our clients.  Many disputes can be solved simply and cheaply with a little common sense and good negotiation. We've found that when cooler heads prevail it often saves everyone money.
