Stall Parker LLP

Stall Parker LLP

Our firm represents plaintiffs and defendants inside and outside of the courtroom in a wide variety of business and insurance disputes.

Firm Overview

We recognize that each client has a unique situation and specific goals. We take the time to learn them so we can tailor our services to meet your objectives. Under some circumstances, it may make sense to aggressively prosecute or defend a lawsuit. Under other circumstances, the wise approach may be to forego court action and push for early informal resolution. Most often, however, it is not an either or situation. The optimal strategy usually involves striking the right balance between formal legal action and informal negotiation.

Our firm represents plaintiffs and defendants inside and outside of the courtroom in a wide variety of business disputes including: contract disputes, business torts, business breakups, partnership disputes, employment matters, trade secrets, theft of customers, trademark and copyright licensing disputes, contractor and construction disputes, real estate disputes, and unfair competition claims.

We represent individuals and businesses dealing with insurance disputes including: wrongful denial of claims, unreasonable claim investigation, and delayed coverage.
