Practice Areas

Insurance Defense

Our firm was founded as an insurance defense firm in 1984 and we have maintained a strong presence in the field as insurance defense litigators.  We have many insurance clients, some of which were clients in 1984 when the firm was founded.

Government Liability

We understand that government tort liability can be quite complex and is distinct from typical civil litigation, even in personal injury cases.  We have the knowledge and experience to represent municipalities, government agencies and quasi-governmental agencies in all defense matters.  

Workers’ Compensation Defense

We have years of experience in handling workers compensation defense matters.  With the recent changes in the workers’ compensation laws, it is important to have strong litigators who recognize the potential pitfalls of these cases.

Civil Trial Practice

We are trial lawyers at heart.  Our attorneys have handled all manners of civil litigation and have real trial experience.  In an era where jury trials are rare in civil litigation, you need attorneys that can resolve matters expediently, but who are ready for trial if necessary.

Property Law Litigation

We also have extensive experience in defending real estate professionals who have been sued when property transfers go wrong.

Personal Injury

Our firm has experience as both defense and plaintiffs’ counsel in personal injury matters.  We concentrate on civil litigation with an emphasis on personal injury.  If you have been injured in an automobile or other accident, contact us to find out how we can assist you.

Business Litigation

Several of our attorneys are well versed in business litigation.  We can handle all types of business litigation including breach of contract, shareholders’ derivative suits, and others.

Employment Litigation

Mark Kinsman and Chad Hogue are experienced employment litigation attorneys.  They have successfully handled complex litigation cases including age discrimination defense and retaliatory discharge.  Contact us for help navigating your employment case.  We can assist whether you are pre or post-litigation.


Fred Clelland and Chad Hogue routinely handle subrogation litigation.  We are equipped to handle small subrogation cases to recover benefits paid for casualty, collision, uninsured motorist, or medical payments.  We also handle large loss subrogation cases.
