Review Marlis McAllister

About Me

I can help you resolve your dispute if it involves real estate, construction or general business issues, whether you need pre-litigation dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration, or to go to trial or through the appeals process. My clients are individuals and small to medium sized businesses to whom I provide superior service and a pragmatic approach. I make myself accessible to my clients and invite them to be as involved as they desire in the process of resolving their disputes
