Plaintiff's Litigation


Our plaintiff’s practice is a perfect complement to defending business and corporations. As we often say to our defense clients, “being a plaintiff’s lawyer makes us better defense counsel.” Because we regularly practice on both sides of the docket, we understand the unique needs, objectives, and goals of both defendants and plaintiffs.

Given our knowledge, experience and reputation, those we sue know that they are up against formidable opponents. That is why we have been able to achieve results for our clients in a wide variety of areas…results that translate into dollars.

Our experience and track record speaks for itself:

Our insight enhances the effectiveness of our legal representation and is the catalyst for our creative approach to settling, negotiating, arbitrating, and litigating any type of legal matter. We strongly believe that our proven record of success is mostly due to our versatility and flexibility as well as to our ability to understand and anticipate how the opposition will think and act. We use this knowledge to create effective, customized, and value-based case strategies.

What is a Plaintiff Lawyer?

The legal definition of a plaintiff's attorney is the lawyer "who represents a plaintiff (the suing party) in a lawsuit." This type of representation is provided to individuals who are seeking compensation for damages. Representation for damages on a business level must be handled by a "defense attorney".
