Devoting his practice to the delivery of creative, cost-effective legal solutions to complex problems, Mr. Stuart has used summary adjudication and motion in limine procedures to test legal theories in advance of trial, saving clients significant legal expenses. While he has tried cases to verdict, his strategy is to use pretrial procedures and mediation as a method for resolving litigation disputes.
Prior to Willoughby, Stuart, Bening & Cook, Mr. Stuart was with the law firm Hoge, Fenton, Jones & Appel, where he developed, with his current partners Randall Willoughby and Bradley Bening, one of the first specialty insurance coverage and bad faith practices in Northern California.
Mr. Stuart is married and has two children. He had the privilege to coach both of his children in soccer for a decade. He has many interests, including still and video photography, skiing, fly-fishing, running and mountain biking. He is also a San Jose Sharks fan and looks forward every year to the playoffs, when the real hockey season begins.
