    BornBaltimore, Maryland, 1953

    Mr. Strickroth, a partner in the litigation department of the Irvine office, joined Kutak Rock in May 2013. Prior to joining Kutak Rock, he was the managing partner of a well-known civil litigation firm in Orange County, where he worked for 26 years. Mr. Strickroth has practiced law in California for 35 years, all focused in civil trial and litigation. He is an accomplished and well-respected trial lawyer having tried in excess of 50 cases and has litigated matters in a wide variety of areas to include governmental tort liability, products liability, discrimination, toxic tort, professional liability, premises liability, trade secret and unfair competition, defamation, homeowner association/director liability, habitability, and breach of contract/fraud business matters.

    Mr. Strickroth's approach toward his litigation engagements is to handle each case with the attention to detail and dedication he would want if he were the client in the case. His goal is to resolve each matter as quickly and efficiently as possible, mindful of the expressed interests of the client and tempered by the bottom-line cost to get there. A successful resolution sometimes may be a settlement, a trial or may involve incorporating outside the box creative approaches. Mr. Strickroth believes maintaining frequent, open and candid communication between attorney and client keeps both informed of significant developments and facilitates the best approach for each case.

    Mr. Strickroth has been a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) since 1991, has served on its Orange County Chapter's Board of Directors for 2013 and 2014, and he has been involved in the ABOTA Masters in Trial Program in 2009, 2013 and 2014. ABOTA membership is by invitation only and granted only to those trial attorneys who are of high personal character and honorable reputation with considerable jury trial experience. Mr. Strickroth is rated AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell . He has served as Arbitrator, Mediator and court-appointed Discovery Referee for the Orange County Superior Court. He also is a member of the Orange County Bar Association and is actively involved in many legal and community organizations and service-related activities.
