Civil Litigation

Our San Mateo civil litigation practice, based in San Mateo, draws equally on four of our core competencies: analysis, strategy, advocacy and common sense. Since its start in Palo Alto, McDowall Cotter has specialized in litigation defense for insurance companies, defending policy holders and providing coverage opinions in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Over time, our litigation services evolved to include defense litigation for individuals, small businesses, start-ups, contractors, corporations, public entities and their employees, and non-profits. We have represented plaintiffs and defendants clients against PG&E San Mateo Fire, dog bites cases, boundary disputes, employment matters and more all over the San Francisco Peninsula and farther.

Today, we are a well known San Mateo Law Firm not only for our defense litigation but also for our appellate work, which has resulted in important legal precedent in the San Francisco Bay Area, the state of California, and for our guidance in other forms of dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration.

We are seasoned litigators. We are as comfortable before a jury as we are in consultation with our clients. However, in no case do we rush to trial. Disputes are unavoidable; our job is to help you resolve them as effectively and as efficiently as possible.

McDowall Cotter has served clients in the greater San Francisco Bay Area including the Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, San Francisco County, Alameda County and more… Are you looking to hire a civil litigation attorney?
