Best Law FirmBest Law Firm 2016

Fueled by the steadfast commitment of our loyal clients, Weinberg Wheeler Hudgins Gunn & Dial met and surpassed the vision of creating a powerhouse, national trial firm when we formed in 1999. Since then, our attorneys have taken to trial or arbitrated more than 370 cases, in addition to countless matters resolved as a matter of law or settled where compromise was advantageous to our client. In the last five years alone, WWHGD attorneys tried 81 cases to verdict, the overwhelming majority resulting in defense verdicts or damage awards effectively reflecting a win for our client.

Our sense of purpose and dedication remain. Every client matters. Every case matters. We are used to tough facts and difficult adversaries – often presented in high exposure cases where trial is imminent. Our vast experience managing large scale litigation from inception to conclusion, including complex commercial disputes, mass tort litigation and high-stakes liability matters, is unmatched. And we do it in all 50 states, Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, Mexico, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, and West Indies.

We are highly experienced, thoughtful in our role as advocates, and committed to being responsive to what our clients need and demand. We LISTEN.

We are resourceful, sharp and innovative in handling litigation and trying cases of every kind, no matter the subject matter, size of exposure or venue involved. We THINK.

We are fearless in our defense of our clients' interests, relentless in our quest to achieve the best result possible, and formidable opponents to adversaries used to getting their way. We WIN.

LISTEN. THINK. WIN. It's what we do.

    Client Comments

    "Carol Michel is a very professional, intelligent and thoughtful litigator. She understands how her litigation strategies will impact the business, and provides solid practical advice. She is a wonderful go to person when an emergency arises."
    - Picini Lora
    Caesars Entertainment Law Department
    "Carol Michel is a dedicated and detail-oriented attorney."
    - Robert van der Meer
    Kaiser Permanente
    "David Dial has a rare combination of traits: honesty, integrity, professionalism, fearlessness, great business acumen and juror appeal, all which enable him to be a wildly successful trial lawyer. I would give David any case to try, anywhere in the world; and sleep better knowing David had the case."
    - Charles Stauber
    Stauber Associates LLC
    "Over our 20-plus-year relationship, David Dial has handled numerous construction-related claims for our firm, both large and small. When dealing with someone who has Dave's experience and depth of knowledge in the construction field, it saves valuable time because he has an immediate grasp of the situation. He is so well-versed in matters of construction specifications, contracts and schedules, which are so unique to our industry, that we always feel that we have an edge over our opponent. Dave represented us in a recent "global-mediation", where 11 different construction entities were involved in a large building construction claim. Although all parties were represented by legal counsel, it didn't take long for Dave to take control and prove that he was the best lawyer in the room, which resulted in a very favorable settlement for our company. Dave blends expert advice with an affable personality. If you want a proven winner, David Dial is your man. "
    - James Cutright
    Guenther Mechanical, Inc.
    "David is extremely knowledgeable in the construction arena. When we hire David and his team, which we do often, the plaintiff lawyers know we mean business and that we are willing to take the case to the mat. David and his firm are known as trial lawyers. Unlike most defense firms, David and lawyers with the firm can not only talk the talk, but can walk the walk and take numerous cases to verdict every year. We do not hire David or the firm for the run-of-the-mill cases; they are only involved in multi-million dollar exposures since their talents and expertise would be wasted on smaller exposure matters. David is a pro."
    - David Crowe
    Lexington Insurance Company
    "David Dial is the best construction attorney I have ever worked with for many reasons. He is an accomplished construction litigator. Like so many things, there are few substitutes for actual experience and his extensive trial background in varying state and federal jurisdictions, for various types of clients, gives him an advantage over many other construction lawyers. In addition, he has a tremendous layman's technical knowledge of construction, engineering, and architectural issues that allows him to understand issues much more fully and quickly than many of his peers. Finally, he has that rare ability to be firm and intimidating when necessary as an advocate for his client, as well as accommodating, collaborative, and creative when those traits best suit resolution of a problem."
    - Michael Mathis
    Echelon Resorts
    "David Dial is a seasoned defense trial attorney who takes on some of the toughest liability and damages cases across the country. My work experience with Dave has been nothing but positive. I find him responsive to the needs of his clients and open to discussing the pros and cons of any case. I have personally observed Dave argue cases and he exhibits a superior command of the legal issues at hand. His demeanor is professional and confident. David is surrounded by a deep bench of partners and associates that enables him to put together an effective defense team. He also has access to some of the best qualified liability and damage experts in the business."
    "Frederick Sager is a superb attorney. He is one of our "go-to" counsel."
    - Lynne Tomeny
    Terex Corporation
    "Skip consistently gets it. He knows how to make a difference in all of his cases."
    - John Moore
    Swiss Reinsurance Americas Corporation
    "John "Skip" Hudgins is truly in a class by himself in terms of trial abilities. He is a top-notch attorney."
