We’re Trial Lawyers

Tharpe & Howell, LLP, has successfully handled thousands of litigated and non-litigated claims for its clients, from claim inception through trial and on appeal. When litigation is unavoidable, we work with our clients to move swiftly, aggressively and strategically to a favorable conclusion. Our attorneys are litigators, and they are not intimidated by large, aggressive adversarial teams. With over 60 attorneys Firm-wide, our internal structure allows a great deal of flexibility in allocating resources consistent with our clients' legal needs. This means a “leaner, meaner” bottom line without sacrificing expertise and results.
