PZK PLLC assists clients with conflict resolution. When an individual or business finds itself in conflict with another party, and at the threshold of what could become a protracted litigation, PZK PLLC, with a strong background in both litigation and mediation, works on behalf of its clients to find satisfactory outcomes to conflicts, using alternative means of dispute resolution and interest-based strategies, resorting to litigation only if absolutely necessary.  However, if settlement cannot be reached, drawing on significant experience as a litigator at both a large New York law firm and a government agency of the City of New York, Mr. Kimball zealously represents his clients’ interests.
