Our Team

Whether it’s a “bet-the-company” case, a complicated financial transaction or a complex commercial matter, LSL lawyers have the experience and resources to achieve the results that best serve our clients. Our litigators are trial lawyers with well in excess of 300 jury trials, experience that enables them to consistently deliver successful verdicts, settlements and appeals for our clients. Equally important, our transactional lawyers know what it takes to close a deal and when to advise a client to walk away. Furthermore, our highly trained staff of certified paralegals and support personnel round out the team, helping to ensure that no client needs go unaddressed.

Our Approach

As a full service law firm we understand that exceptional service and strong client relationships are oftentimes just as important to the clients as results. In fact, over the years we have found that striving to provide the best possible service and committing to developing strong client relationships enhances overall results by allowing us to better anticipate and respond quickly to the needs of our clients. Placing an emphasis on service and relationships is therefore a top priority for every LSL employee.

Our Clients

Since our founding in 1999, LSL lawyers have represented a wide variety of clients, across various industries and sectors, ranging from large Fortune 500 corporations to small businesses, and from entrepreneurs to other individuals. We serve national, regional, state and community banks, credit unions and other financial institutions, as well as national insurance and surety companies. Our clients also include oil companies, pipeline companies, construction companies, national retailers, manufacturers and healthcare institutions, as well as doctors, lawyers and other professionals.

      “The difference between the almost right word and the right word is … the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”
      —Mark Twain

Our attorneys routinely research and prepare a variety of motions and petitions, ranging from pretrial to post-trial motions, as well as filing and defending petitions for extraordinary relief. We work closely with trial attorneys to identify the strengths and weaknesses of arguments and issues for appeal.  Our appellate attorneys carefully analyze cases and attend trials to develop legal strategies and preserve appellate issues.

      Our appellate team also offers significant litigation support and collaboration with other lawyers in the firm across a wide range of practice areas, working as a team to resolve cases quickly and successfully.  In each case that we handle, our attorneys provide clients with personalized service and attention, taking the time to explain the complicated laws and legal procedures that may impact their case.
