Our Approach:

We like to win. In some cases, winning requires trying a case before a judge or jury, but often winning means reaching a specific target or outcome. Our approach to litigation emphasizes establishing our client’s desired outcomes and setting realistic, achievable objectives for every case.

Our litigators are known for their success against much larger firms both locally and nationally. We have litigated precedent-setting cases and have won cases in federal court and state court, at trial and on appeal, and in arbitration and through mediation. We have experience in cases involving commercial and business disputes, eminent domain and condemnation, intellectual property and first amendment law, real estate (including construction defects, homeowners associations, and developers), securities, shareholder and corporate disputes, and trust and estate litigation.

As a boutique law firm, Tousley Brain Stephens is nimble and efficient. At the foundation of our litigation practice is a seasoned team of trial lawyers who truly enjoy practicing law and the hands-on work required to prepare and try cases. They put their experience to work, leveraging resources to prepare lawsuits to maximize the likelihood of a favorable result.

Our clients appreciate the expertise focused on their cases and their personal interactions with their legal team. And, while they may tell you a story of dramatic courtroom heroics, they’re just as likely to tell you that the experience of their counsel translated into never having to go to court, saving them valuable time and money.

Our litigators are seasoned trial lawyers driven to achieve our clients' desired outcomes.
