Cadem Law Group stands out as a leader among its competitors because we have developed innovative and dynamic litigation strategies to quickly strike at the heart of each matter.  Rather than rushing a case to settlement or a plea deal, we begin with the assumption that each case will go to trial. Working from that assumption, we then apply strategies that are calculated to achieve our clients’ unique goals. This is what makes a litigation firm such as Cadem Law Group different from other firms.

Using these techniques we are able to settle the vast majority of our cases without the need for protracted and costly litigation, and to provide strategic alternatives in otherwise one-sided cases. Whether you are bringing a wrongful death lawsuit for the loss of a loved one, or defending against federal prosecution for drug trafficking, Cadem Law Group will fight to protect your rights. By conducting ourselves with the highest possible level of integrity, approaching our cases with a mind toward trial, and utilizing creative litigation strategies, we have established a reputation for, and a proven record of, success.


Cadem Law Group wants you to be happy with our representation and the results we achieve. We understand that cost is a key consideration and concern in every case we handle, and we recognize that our client’s interest in a quick resolution and affordable representation oftentimes conflicts with the desire of typical attorneys to maximize the fees they generate in a case. That is why we provide you with a guarantee. Cadem Law Group unconditionally guarantees that (1) legal fees will be disclosed upfront before you incur any costs, and (2) we will make every effort to resolve your legal matter in the quickest and most economical way possible. In the event you are unhappy with our representation at any time, you may immediately terminate our representation, without penalty or further expense, and your entire file will be prepared and returned to you free of charge.
