About LWS Lillard Wise Szygenda PLLC is a boutique litigation firm with the ability to effectively represent the interests of any client in any forum in any civil matter. With more than 300 jury trials, bench trials, and arbitrations successfully tried to verdict and more than 50 appeals favorably prosecuted or competently defeated, our lawyers have successfully represented a wide array of clients in a variety of industries, ranging from Fortune 500 companies in billion-dollar contract and tort disputes to individuals seeking to resolve soured business relationships. There was a time when lawyers spoke of their clients using the term we when advocating, recognizing that the organizing principle of an attorney's existence was to advance the client's interests through zealous representation in accordance with the lawyer's ethical obligations. In an age where law firms increasingly view their clients as profit centers, the attorneys at Lillard Wise Szygenda appreciate the primacy of the client. They recognize that their law license is authority to practice a learned art, not a business permit. Accordingly, client service drives the practice of law at our firm. With our talented lawyers and reasonable rates, we allow clients to consider a broader range of options in addressing their disputes, including trial on the merits. Moreover, our fee and alternative billing arrangements are structured so that our clients can base their litigation decisions, not on the cost of litigation, but on business considerations, principle, and the dispute's merits. The founders of the firm,, and Andy Szygenda, pride themselves in their ability to provide quality representation in any matter regardless of the subject or industry involved. These lawyers' skills and judgment have repeatedly prevailed in litigation against attorneys with specialized knowledge or the backing of big-firm reputations. Facts are easily discovered, the ability to persuade and exercise good judgment is not. Nor is a history of trying and winning cases. A representation from our attorneys in a negotiation that we will try a case to verdict for our client is never an empty threat but a credible statement.
