The foundation of our firm’s litigation practice is based on experienced trial attorneys who have handled all kinds of complex matters in state and federal courts through jury trial, court trial, mediation and arbitration. The best results in litigation can only be achieved if the case is positioned for success, and you are prepared, it necessary, to excel should the matter need to go to trial. Our firm has maintained its reputation for excellence in the courtroom for decades, with four attorneys over the course of the last 40 years invited into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).
We represent a wide variety of clients in litigation – large and small local businesses, property owners, wineries, employers and employees, cities and counties, individuals and families who have been seriously injured or wronged, and we have acted as counsel for some of the biggest companies in the country when they find themselves in our local courtrooms. We regularly represent clients in Sonoma, Marin, Napa, and Mendocino County Superior Courts, as well as other Bay Area counties, and in the United States District Court, Northern District of California.
Whether you or your company is being sued, or needs to take action against others, we have represented clients in a variety of litigation matters, ranging from business, property and employment disputes, to serious personal injury or wrongful death cases, and we do so efficiently and with integrity. You will benefit from our decades of litigation experience, our knowledge of the local courts and experts, and from the reputation we have earned from opposing counsel.
