We can handle a broad spectrum of claims thanks to our team of seasoned and versatile lawyers with diverse legal backgrounds. These include former prosecutors, public defenders, criminal defense attorneys, corporate law attorneys, and public sector attorneys who bring their skill and acumen to every aspect of your case.
Our firm founders were among the only attorneys willing to fight for neglected and abused elderly victims at a time when most law firms saw no value in nursing home cases. Passionate about protecting society’s most vulnerable members, Wilkes & McHugh has spent the last 30 years in pursuit of justice and improved care through litigation and legislation. We bring that same fervor to all of our practice areas and have the courage to strike out into uncharted legal territories.
Because cases cost hundreds of thousands of dollars – or, in some cases, millions – to try before a jury, many law firms are hindered when taking on giant corporations. Wilkes & McHugh is an established firm with the financial resources and wherewithal to take on corporations of any size.
Too often lawyers are quick to settle because they don’t have the time or know-how to present your case before a jury. A firm that is willing and able to represent you at the courthouse can be your most effective assurance of justice. We see clients’ cases all the way through, even if it means going to court, and we have a track record of substantial courtroom verdicts and successful appeals.
