A team of dynamic lawyers, experienced in the representation of parties to a lawsuit, including investigation and discovery, and negotiation and mediation.


In matters which we are not able to resolve by negotiation, we have successfully represented individuals, businesses and governmental entities in arbitrations, trials, and administrative hearings. The Litigation Practice Group at de la Peña & Holiday consists of a team of incisive lawyers who are experts in the representation of parties to a lawsuit, including investigation and discovery, as well as negotiation and mediation. Beyond basic litigation, we are equally renowned for our representation of clients in matters before state and federal courts of appeal.

Our Approach:

We employ a unique and successful approach to handling litigation matters. To begin the process, we meet with our clients where realistic goals and expectations are defined. A litigation plan is then developed, that focuses constantly upon the client’s financial interests. With the plan in place, we aggressively pursue our clients’ rights while maintaining the highest standards of ethics and professionalism.

Our Experience:
