“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.” – Simon Sinek
Building a business is hard. Doubt and uncertainty are your constant companions. Leaving behind a regular paycheck for the promise of doing it the way you know it should be done is both exhilarating and frightening. The hours are long, the rewards aren’t guaranteed, and the path forward isn’t always clear.
Running a business is harder. It’s constant and all-consuming. There are never enough hours in a week to accomplish everything. For every opportunity that presents itself, there is another challenge, another hurdle, another roadblock to go around.
After years of hard work, it’s beginning to pay off. But then, a trusted partner betrays you; a former employee runs off with trade secrets; a once reliable customer fails to honor their contract; or a competitor engages in fraud or unfair competition. It’s not just another problem to solve, it can affect everything you’ve worked for and built.
Litigation and lawsuits are unpredictable. When pursuing a legal claim, you are staring into a black hole of unpredictability. How long will all of this take? How much of my valuable time will I have to spend on this case? What are the risks involved? The questions are endless.
We can help. I’ve had a relationship with a business partner disintegrate. I’ve had a client declared insolvent leaving me with thousands in unpaid bills and it almost put me out of business. I’ve had to weigh the options of pursuing those that didn’t pay what they owed my business.
We only litigate and bring to trial business and commercial cases. We believe every case requires an effective and forceful strategy to achieve a successful resolution. If there isn’t a clear path to a good result, we’ll tell you.
Some cases need to be litigated and brought to trial. Some cases should never see the inside of a courtroom. A good lawyer knows the difference. You should know the strengths and weaknesses of your case at the beginning—not when waiting for the jury to come back with a verdict. We believe every client deserves nothing less. Tell us where you want to go. We can help you get there.

Little did I know of the battle I had ahead of me! Martin Champagne was incredible through the whole process. If I went with another firm I am positive I would still be dealing with this mess and I know for sure I would not have the outcome I do! A million thanks Martin Champagne, you are truly the best lawyer!
I hired Martin for a litigation matter and he was excellent: organized, thorough, professional and explained everything completely.
My wife was being sued by an insurance company after an accidental fire in a rented home. He analyzed the situation and developed an innovative solution that took us out of the claim entirely. Amazing. Then he topped off the whole thing with a generous gift to us that we will always remember. I don’t think we could be bigger fans. God bless you, Marty!
