Clients facing litigation in today’s demanding environment face a tough challenge – to find lawyers who not only have the court room experience, skill and determination to produce results, but who do so while keeping litigation costs under control. Goodell DeVries has the attorneys and resources to meet these challenges.
On a local, regional and national level, our firm's attorneys handle a wide variety of complex and challenging matters, from professional negligence to insurance coverage, and from product liability to commercial disputes. We assist clients in planning business strategies that are designed to avoid litigation. We help clients prepare for anticipated litigation before suit is filed. Once litigation is commenced, we work with our clients to implement best practices designed to provide clients with the information necessary to effectively manage the litigation. Goodell DeVries' litigation resources are comparable to those in the litigation departments of the country’s largest law firms.
Formed in 1988 by sixteen attorneys, our firm has more than tripled in size in the intervening years, fueled by clients satisfied with the expertise of our attorneys, and our ability to obtain the results desired by our clients in an effective and cost efficient manner. The firm has since expanded with offices in Baltimore and Philadelphia, and remains active regionally, nationally, and internationally. Our firm offices are easily accessible from the Baltimore Washington International Airport, and by Amtrak.
Goodell DeVries employs technology to streamline the practice of law, and to enhance communication between client and counsel. Goodell DeVries maintains a substantial Information Services Department whose members keep our attorneys apprised of the advantages technology can offer to litigators and who provide to our lawyers on a case-by-case basis the necessary technological tools to further the client’s interests. In addition, the Information Services Department can work with our clients to ensure that there is interoperability between the technological resources of our firm and those of our clients.
Our firm works hard to gain the advantages of computer-aided research, while avoiding some of the costs associated therewith. One method that our lawyers employ to further this goal is to use the free resources available on the Internet.
Goodell DeVries' lawyers are committed to serving both bar and community. Our lawyers are published in a variety of areas, addressing both the skill of trial advocacy and substantive areas of law.
Our firm's lawyers donate substantial time to pro bono work and to a variety of community activities.
Our firm's lawyers are always happy to speak to groups of any size on issues relating to our practice.
