Litchfield Cavo LLP is a litigation defense law firm founded in 1998 on one principle: client service comes first. It is natural to assume that a firm that has grown to more than 175 attorneys in 13 offices may be impersonal and provide limited accessibility to attorneys. We pride ourselves on being the opposite. We blend the vast resources of a nationwide law firm with the responsive service and reasonable billing practices typically found only at small firms. Our attorneys and staff value client relationships. We encourage communication that is open and honest. Most importantly, integrity and professionalism are visible in every action.
