Firm Details

As a firm, our strength lies in our experience. We are trial attorneys. It’s in our blood, and it means we fight hard for our clients, no matter what — even if a case never sees the inside of a courtroom. That’s the Lincoln Derr Advantage.

Our attorneys represent some of the largest healthcare providers, municipalities and Fortune 500 companies throughout the Southeast. We have handled a wide range of matters, from breach of contract to construction defects, professional negligence to catastrophic personal injury, and municipal liability to complex business disputes. We’ve logged more than 10,000 hours in the courtroom and 150-plus years of combined practice experience.

The law has a reputation for being mostly white and largely male. Our firm turns that stereotype on its head. At Lincoln Derr, women and minorities make up the majority of our team, creating an inclusive atmosphere in which our individual differences are recognized as an underutilized resource rather than a paralyzing obstacle. Our culture promotes and rewards mutual respect, collaboration and the free-flowing exchange of ideas, for the benefit of our team and our clients.

We know our juries and our court system, local nuances and laws. Even better, we know our opponents. As our firm has grown throughout the Southeast, so has our reputation for being deeply rooted in the communities we serve. We now represent clients in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Maryland.

We believe the best way to resolve a case is to be prepared to win in the courtroom. By creating a trial strategy that incorporates strategic settlement planning, we deliver unparalleled service to our clients — and save them millions.
