About

Steptoe & Johnson’s Insurance Litigation Group offers decades of experience successfully representing clients in:

  • Administrative hearings, trials, and appeals
  • Civil rights
  • Contract disputes
  • Government liability
  • Medical liability
  • Personal injury
  • Premises liability
  • Wrongful death

The group’s success is the by-product of a commitment to outstanding client service that exceeds expectations. Members of the group have trial experience, but just as important, the patience and understanding to know when trial might not be the best option for clients. Instead of a one-size-fits-all solution, Steptoe & Johnson tailors its approach to the needs of each client throughout our representation.
