Litigation


Civil & Criminal
Deutsch Williams offers the expertise and refined judgment of our trial attorneys in a full spectrum of legal matters, both in and out of the courtroom. Our litigators are keenly aware of both the benefits and the costs of taking disputes to court. We are members of the bar in several states, regularly argue and try cases to judges and juries in state and federal courts and administrative agencies at all levels, and have extensive experience in the use of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration.

The Firm is committed to prudent, cost-effective and long-term case management. We therefore evaluate individually the particular needs and situation of each client. We review with our client opportunities to achieve the most favorable outcome through the careful negotiation or mediation of a settlement. However, when litigation is the only option or the best course of action, we are known by clients, the opposition, and the courts for our innovative and aggressive advocacy.

Our site and experience ensure that each client receives prompt and personal attention. We successfully have scaled our services to the stakes of cases from several thousand dollars to $30 million, from long-term litigation to actions for immediate injunctive relief.
