The Litigation Chair is Tim Polishan.
How we help
Our firm prepares every case to succeed at trial.
Before litigation is inevitable, however, we work to open as many options as possible. At each step, we identify gain and risk, so you can make good choices.
Every lawsuit is an opportunity cost, an investment that might be better spent elsewhere. Litigation's effect on your business, or in your life, can be hard. Sometimes, even a good case can be a bad use of time or money: we never forget this, from the earliest point, to trial and beyond.
We have decades of experience achieving clients' goals.
This includes trying cases to verdict in federal, state, civil, criminal, jury and non-jury trials.
Our experience includes complex civil and criminal matters, in corporate and individual representations, for plaintiffs and defendants, in trials and hearings, appeals, arbitration, administrative proceedings, grand jury proceedings, class and collective actions, mediation and settlement negotiation.
Who we work for
We have represented businesses, business owners, corporate officers, physicians, lawyers, public figures, officials, clubs, families, pro bono clients throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania, and individuals harmed as well as those accused of doing harm.
How we work
Our work is pragmatic. We use experience from many cases and industries, including manufacturing, distribution, health care, physicians, banking, construction, real estate, railroad, gaming, insurance, restaurant, retail, law firms, and non-profits.
