Dedicated Litigation Attorneys

Regardless of their size, scope, or industry, businesses need versatile, creative trial attorneys to help protect their investment. OFP’s trial attorneys have been a fixture in state and Federal courts in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia and beyond for 50 years. We try cases regularly, earning our reputation as trusted advocates who reliably navigate the courts with focus, strategy and deliberation to achieve the most positive results for our clients.

Our litigation team brings a diverse mix of knowledge and experience. Many are former law clerks. Others served as prosecutors. All bring passion, legal know-how, and deep subject-matter expertise to each client’s challenge, and together, they work to find creative solutions that fit the client needs – and budget.

Speaking of clients, we like to protect their right to privacy, so we won’t be naming names. Instead, we’ll let our experience do the talking.

Areas of Focus:

Business/Commercial Litigation

OFP’s bread and butter is its business and commercial litigation practice anchored by the region’s top trial attorneys. Our clients range from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. Our attorneys partner with their clients to understand the client’s litigation goals and to reach them in the swiftest, most cost-effective way possible. Unlike many litigators, OFP’s trial attorneys are comfortable going to trial if the case requires it. We are experts at alternative dispute resolution and negotiating favorable settlements, but should it be necessary to go to trial, this team has tried thousands of cases to judges and juries.

Government Contracts/Municipal Litigation

In addition to their legal expertise, many of our attorneys have experience with our Armed Forces or in other positions within the public sector. This offers them a deep knowledge of how to navigate government agencies with ease and confidence. This can mean protecting our clients’ interests through prosecuting or defending bid protests before the Government Accountability Office, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the Small Business Administration Office of Hearings and Appeals.

We also represent clients in prosecuting claims before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals and the FAA Office of Dispute Resolution for Acquisition.

Labor/Employment Litigation

As regulation of the workplace expands, the number of employment-related disputes and claims often follows suit. We work with our client to implement case management strategies focusing on the most effective method of employment dispute resolution to advance our clients’ interests and avoid costly, protracted litigation. When litigation is unavoidable, we work closely with our clients to devise effective litigation strategies to minimize costs and adverse impacts. Our labor and employment attorneys bring an exemplary record of accomplishment and successful defense of clients in a wide variety of labor and employment matters. We regularly represent clients in federal courts and federal administrative agencies nationwide. We bring a special expertise to matters pending in state and federal courts throughout Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.

Real Estate/Construction Litigation

From mechanic’s liens and condemnation claims to rezoning and land use issues and commercial real estate contract disputes and development litigation, our trial attorneys bring a wealth of experience and impressive track record of securing wins for our clients.

Trust/Estate Litigation

When corporate fiduciaries or beneficiaries face disputes related to the contest of wills, trusts or other similar instruments, our trust and estate litigators put to work years of knowledge and experience to preserve and enforce our clients’ rights. Our trial team expertly challenges or defends clients’ wills or trusts, fiduciary actions or administration issues and represents your interests in guardianship or conservatorship matters.

White Collar Criminal Defense and Personal Injury

When a business is suspected of, or charged with, a criminal offense, its principals need representation that’s immediate, responsive, and committed to the protection of the entity and its rights. Our criminal defense team is sensitive to our clients’ issues and zealous in their representation. We have extensive experience representing clients from the investigative and pre-indictment stage through trial in all areas of criminal law.

Our team also represents individuals. When a loved one dies a wrongful death or if you suffer an injury—whether at the hands of others’ recklessness, negligence or unsafe conditions—our Northern Virginia personal injury attorneys are here to help. Our attorneys take quick legal action to protect your welfare and help you avoid devastating financial consequences.
