Spilman Thomas & Battle’s attorneys are skilled in litigation and trial work. From offices in West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania, we strive to solve problems in ways that meet our clients’ individual needs. The firm strongly encourages early case assessment to identify and quantify the risks of trial compared to the potential for an early, cost-effective resolution in litigation matters. Using early case assessment, the firm works closely with the client to identify goals and determine how each individual matter should be handled and resolved.
Whether the case is simple or complex, the firm’s philosophy is to manage corporate litigation as efficiently and effectively as possible, using attorneys with the best experience in practice areas that best fit each case. We also involve paralegals and support staff to help minimize the cost to our clients.
