There are litigators and there are trial lawyers. Paul is a trial lawyer.
Although he can skillfully navigate discovery issues, argue pre-trial motions and be creative in settlement negotiations, Paul has what “litigators” do not have-substantial experience in the trial of complex cases.
Experience that Matters
Paul's history of successfully representing both plaintiffs and defendants gives him the perspective needed to skillfully guide clients through the most contentious and complex lawsuits. His broad based experience includes representation of clients in class actions, multi-district litigation, mass tort and toxic tort cases, serious personal injury and wrongful death cases, products liability cases, real property disputes including condemnation actions, securities and broker fraud cases, business torts and contract actions, and defective building product and construction defects lawsuits. Having served as both an arbitrator and a mediator, he understands the keys to obtaining favorable outcomes in alternative dispute resolution proceedings.
Paul's record of achievement in diverse legal disputes is reflected in the fact that “Best Lawyers in America, ” recognizes Paul in three different categories: Bet-the-Company Litigation, Real Estate Litigation and Business Torts Litigation.
