Who We Are
McGuinness & Associates seeks not only to pursue innovative, practical solutions to existing challenges, but to identify and institute preventative action to avoid prospective issues. We consider the confidence clients place in us to be both a privilege and an opportunity for our firm to develop mutual success with that of our clientele. Your interest in our law firm is very much appreciated.
Our attorneys have decades of experience guiding clients toward their objectives in all aspects of construction, business, commercial, banking and general contract related disputes. The firm’s lawyers conduct interactive client interviews to both understand and collaborate with clients. Our lawyers can then develop strategic plans to fully and efficiently address business concerns, and ensure a most effective means for achieving the optimal result.
McGuinness & Associates engages in a large variety of general litigation matters throughout California, including Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, Oakland and the Inland Empire. In addition to its California litigation, this firm manages a national litigation program for a Fortune 500 company. Our firm has developed a network of local counsel in each of the program states to successfully operate and manage this litigation. With assistance from these local counsel, our firm actively litigates nationally.
Our trial lawyers achieve effectiveness through preparation, experience, persuasive skills and technology. The firm utilizes state of the art equipment and software to develop intriguing, entertaining and persuasive presentations which command the attention and interest of the target audience.
The firm’s clientele range from several Fortune 500 companies to individual owners and professionals. In its representation of claimants, McGuinness & Associates has obtained large settlements, jury verdicts and arbitration awards. Conversely, we have aggressively protected defendants by obtaining zero dollar defense verdicts and/or favorable settlement resolutions through alternative dispute resolution methods. The firm’s standard fee structure is based on published hourly rates. Contingency fee agreements and/or mixed fee agreements (hourly and contingency components) along with flat fees and task based billing are available in appropriate circumstances.
