The best attorney is always going to be the one that can see beyond being “tough” and aggressive to identifying the best strategy for the client’s needs – whether that’s litigation or a mediation strategy. - Frances Scroggins
Conway, AR (PRWEB) February 05, 2014

“My clients know I go all the way for them,” said Fran. “But it’s easy to forget that aggressive litigation and paperwork filing isn’t always the right course. Mediation and negotiation is sometimes just as if not more effective than court proceedings.
