Snell & Wilmer has developed one of the largest, most successful and cost-effective product liability attorney teams in the United States.

Our product liability attorney team includes attorneys who have extensive trial experience in both state and federal courts. An effective defense team requires real trial lawyers, not “litigators” who avoid the courtroom at any cost. We have prepared and tried a large number of product liability cases from catastrophic injuries involving individual plaintiffs to large product liability class actions involving millions of plaintiffs. Several of the group’s attorneys are fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

Attorneys in the group regularly try cases throughout the United States. In recent years, our attorneys have tried cases in Arizona, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Washington, and other states.
