Content is provided by the firm.Fitzgerald Knaier LLP is a law firm of highly experienced trial attorneys committed to aggressive, honest advocacy. We are a San Diego boutique litigation firm, focused exclusively on trying cases and handling controversies for our clients. Although our practice is limited to trial and litigation matters, we have a broad body of experience with a wide range of cases and areas of law.
We represent both plaintiffs and defendants, and we advocate for corporate entities as well as individuals. Our lawyers have represented some of the most sophisticated clients in the business world. We have also championed the causes of vulnerable individuals who have been wronged by powerful corporate and government interests. Whatever the particular matter, our overriding commitment is to represent all of our clients vigorously and thoughtfully, with civility, integrity and professionalism.
Our skilled trial lawyers have handled a diverse array of matters, including complex commercial cases, business torts, contract and partnership disputes, intellectual property claims, toxic tort litigation, real estate litigation, labor and employment disputes, plaintiffs’ personal injury claims, legal malpractice cases, insurance coverage disputes, consumer mortgage fraud litigation, and plaintiffs’ class actions.
We represent businesses and individuals in complex and high-stakes matters that often cannot be handled efficiently by larger firms with higher fees and more rigid hourly billing rates. While our attorneys have extensive experience working on behalf of a variety of clients, we pride ourselves on being known as a firm that represents the underdog, ready to take on large corporate entities. When representing individual plaintiffs, corporate clients, or defendants, we bring our deep trial experience and willingness to go to trial to the table. We are not intimidated by the prospect of taking difficult cases to trial, against the most formidable adversaries. Regardless of who we represent, we are committed to excellence in the courtroom, and we relish the chance to tell a client’s story to a jury.
The attorneys at Fitzgerald Knaier are passionate about trial practice. Our trial lawyers have collectively tried dozens of cases to verdict, before judges and juries, in numerous jurisdictions. We have a wealth of experience with arbitrations and alternative dispute resolution. We have tried cases in state and federal courts throughout the country. We have been recognized as “top attorneys” in litigation by numerous professional rating publications. We understand that trial advocacy is an art, and we focus constantly on honing the skills needed to champion our clients’ claims.
