Lincoln Derr is a civil litigation firm built for today’s world.

It began back in 2009 when Sara Lincoln and Tricia Derr — both seasoned and accomplished trial attorneys — came together to create a new kind of law firm. They saw a need in the industry and a demand among clients for an alternative to the big, institutional law firms — one that offered diversity, trial experience, innovation, and value. That was the foundation for Lincoln Derr, and it continues to guide our firm now as we continue to grow and win for our clients.

We're up for all sorts of challenges.
General Litigation

One of the most difficult parts of business is expecting the unexpected and managing liability. To maintain peace of mind, you need a legal partner who can think ahead.

Business Litigation

To build a business that thrives, you need insight from attorneys who understand your industry at the state and federal level and simplify these concepts into a direct course of action.

Healthcare Liability

For healthcare providers and practitioners, allegations of wrongdoing aren’t just business – they’re intensely personal. Providers need experienced advocates to make an uncomfortable process as comfortable as possible.

Construction Law

Construction projects are complicated at all stages. Disputes are prevalent. Maintaining a foothold requires an attorney with a concrete understanding of diverse issues that often arise. Let us help keep your project on track.

Products Liability

When a product is involved in any loss, it’s easy to point fingers at the manufacturer/seller. Our team deconstructs details to identify the true cause of the injury. Products liability cases require an understanding of medicine in personal injury cases and business valuation in economic loss cases. We have both.
