Gross McGinley represents businesses and individuals in civil and criminal disputes in the courtroom. One of the greatest strengths of our firm is its Litigation Practice Group, which consists of ten attorneys who have diverse and extensive trial experience in all phases of litigation. Our cases range from trials with millions of dollars at stake, to smaller cases that are just as important to the clients involved. Every case is handled as though it is our most important, but we are also aware of clients’ concerns about legal expenses, and we carefully balance the desired result with the manner in which a case is litigated.
The firm’s approach all litigation matters as though they are going to be taken to trial, even though we recognize and expect that many matters will settle outside the courtroom. While settlement is often a desirable outcome, we believe that litigators must be prepared to take cases to trial in order to bring about the best settlement for their clients. We believe in the jury system, and, importantly, we like to try cases. We offer a competitive advantage to our clients in cases where opposing counsel are reluctant to go into the courtroom.
Our firm uses the latest legal and case management technology to track, handle, and evaluate cases, which makes a difference in the courtroom. We have a wide network of expert witnesses, legal technology consultants, and attorneys in other areas with whom we consult on matters as needed.
Gross McGinley has lawyers who are qualified to practice in every court in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as well as in New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. All of our trial lawyers regularly appear in state and federal courts throughout Pennsylvania.
Because we understand that our clients generally would prefer not to litigate, we also offer input on the advisability of mandatory arbitration clauses in commercial contracts, alternative dispute resolution such as mediation, risk-management, and avoidance.
