McDonald Toole Wiggins, P.A. is dedicated to representing manufacturers and other businesses involved in complex civil litigation. Such businesses face legal challenges in a variety of ways.  Not every dispute results in a lawsuit, and not every lawsuit results in a trial.  But every matter we are entrusted to handle is analyzed, investigated and prepared, as if it will.  We demonstrate this dedication through innovative technology, and cost-conscious solutions to our clients’ needs.

We have one, and only one, core principle to our firm’s philosophy:  Our clients’ interests are paramount in every action we take.  And we know of only one way to protect those interests, and that is simply thorough preparation and hard work.  We strive to accomplish this in a cost-effective, realistic manner.

At McDonald Toole Wiggins, P.A., we pride ourselves on this principle.  While we recognize that a trial does not occur in the majority of cases, we believe the best results are achieved by demonstrating the skill and preparation necessary to ably try a case.  This is the reputation we have worked diligently to ensure.

We have consciously formed our firm to provide the quality of services typically found only in larger, national law firms.  Boutique in size, but not in experience, McDonald Toole Wiggins, P.A. is committed to a workplace diverse in its members and responsive to its clients.
