Tacoma, WA



When disputes arise between two or more parties, legal actions are often the result.  Whether you initiate a claim or need to defend yourself, it is critical to have legal representation that looks out for your rights and works hard to obtain the best results for you as the client.
The Litigation Group of Luce & Associates offers experienced litigators who obtain real, measurable results for our clients when other methods – and, in some cases, other firms – have not produced an acceptable outcome.  We accommodate both those clients with claims against other parties, and those clients seeking a seasoned advocate to formulate a strong, successful defense.
Our attorneys have tried cases in State and Federal courts throughout the country.  Our attorneys know how to manage a case to achieve the best possible outcome – and how to do so in a manner that is consistent with our client’s business goals.
We understand, however, that a trial is not always in the best interest of the client.  Recognizing the increasing pressure clients face to resolve cases without the risk and expense of a trial, we also have a long track record of securing the dismissal or settlement of lawsuits in the early stages of litigation, without the unnecessary expense of time and resources.
