Overview

Content is provided by the firm.

Fueled by the steadfast commitment of our loyal clients, Weinberg Wheeler Hudgins Gunn & Dial met and surpassed the vision of creating a powerhouse, national trial firm when we formed in 1999. Since then, our attorneys have taken to trial or arbitrated more than 370 cases, in addition to countless matters resolved as a matter of law or settled where compromise was advantageous to our client. In the last five years alone, WWHGD attorneys tried 81 cases to verdict, the overwhelming majority resulting in defense verdicts or damage awards effectively reflecting a win for our client.

Our sense of purpose and dedication remain. Every client matters. Every case matters. We are used to tough facts and difficult adversaries – often presented in high exposure cases where trial is imminent. Our vast experience managing large scale litigation from inception to conclusion, including complex commercial disputes, mass tort litigation and high-stakes liability matters, is unmatched. And we do it in all 50 states, Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, Mexico, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, and West Indies.

We are highly experienced, thoughtful in our role as advocates, and committed to being responsive to what our clients need and demand. We LISTEN.

We are resourceful, sharp and innovative in handling litigation and trying cases of every kind, no matter the subject matter, size of exposure or venue involved. We THINK.

We are fearless in our defense of our clients' interests, relentless in our quest to achieve the best result possible, and formidable opponents to adversaries used to getting their way. We WIN.

LISTEN. THINK. WIN. It's what we do.
