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.
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.
