Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

Stich Angell lawyers have extensive experience representing defendants in claims involving personal injury and wrongful death. From  auto injuries to workplace accidents to injuries and deaths caused by defective products, our lawyers are committed to understanding the unique nuances of each case, and reaching the best result for every client, whether that is early settlement, motions to dismiss the case, mediated settlement, or trial. We represent individuals, businesses, property owners, and employers during all stages of litigation, from inception through discovery, motions, and trial.

Premises Liability

When slips, falls, and other injuries occur within homes and businesses, Stich Angell lawyers have years of experience successfully defending property owners from claims for damages by persons claiming harm due to the condition of real property.  Premises liability claims may concern differing standards of care depending on the status of the injured party, and cover the gamut from defectively constructed or maintained stairways  to substances spilled on the floor.  Our lawyers have experience delving into the details of the claimed property defect and applying the appropriate standard to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients, whether through dismissal via summary judgment, or resolution at mediation or trial.

Business Litigation

Stich Angell lawyers are knowledgeable and experienced in representing a wide variety of clients, both individuals and corporations, involved in business disputes, including enforcement and defense of contracts (including contractual indemnity issues), employment contracts (including non-compete agreements), and sales agreements.  We can help you negotiate a resolution of your dispute short of litigation, and can represent you thoughtfully and assertively should the matter result in a lawsuit.  We can also help you draft and negotiate agreements to better protect your interests and prevent involvement in claims and lawsuits.  The best defense to a contract action is proactive and careful drafting in order to prevent disputes from arising later.

Legal Malpractice/Professional E&O

Stich Angell’s expertise represent and defend professionals including lawyers, physicians, architects, and engineers, in a wide variety of matters such as errors and omissions claims, licensing, and disciplinary matters and claims involving both professional negligence and intentional torts.  We also represent hospitals, clinics, care facilities, and their employers.  Should you require assistance with a matter that calls your professional standards into question, contact the lawyers at Stich Angell.

Healthcare Subrogation
