Miller Nash Graham & Dunn's litigation lawyers believe we have a responsibility to help the firm's clients solve their legal problems favorably, promptly, economically, and professionally. We achieve these goals through efficient use of teamwork with one another and collaboration with other Miller Nash Graham & Dunn practice groups and teams.

We believe in "the Miller Nash Graham & Dunn way" of approaching litigation. This means that judges, arbitrators, and adversaries can trust what we say about the facts and the law. We are assertive and effective advocates with a strong reputation for credibility earned by many appearances before state and federal judges and local arbitrators and mediators. We believe in practical, commonsense, and cost-effective solutions to client problems.

Our practice group includes over 75 lawyers, many of whom have been recognized in such publications as Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers, and others as among the most respected trial lawyers and "bet-the-company" litigators.
