National Plaintiffs’ Law Firm Handling Complex High-Stakes Litigation

Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky Wotkyns LLP is a national litigation law firm founded in 1993 that handles complex legal claims. From our offices in the San Francisco Bay Area, Texas, and Arizona, our lawyers represent classes of individuals, businesses, institutions, and individuals in jurisdictions nationwide. We focus on class action, mass tort, and other complex commercial cases.  Our team of experienced trial attorneys navigate the most complex areas of law to aggressively get results for our clients.


An in-depth investigation is the foundation of successful litigation. During the investigative phase, our attorneys work with our clients to understand the specifics of each industry or business so that our clients are a step ahead in the courtroom. 

The Pre-Trial Litigation Process

Our work has taken us into federal and state courts, where we have pursued class action suits and other complex litigation both for and against Fortune 500 companies, government entities and major universities.  We believe that the litigation process is the great equalizer.   Through the dogged pursuit of targeted discovery (the evidence-gathering phase)  we marshal evidence that is essential to the successful outcome of our clients’ cases.   We firmly believe that preparation is the key to success in litigation.   To that end, our firm is equipped to conduct discovery using the most advanced technology and sophisticated techniques available.


We believe that our clients maximize their results in litigation by always being prepared to proceed to trial.   If a defendant is unwilling to come to a reasonable negotiated resolution, our law firm tries cases.   Our award winning trial lawyers have tried cases in both federal and state courts across the country.   Through our unrelenting pursuit of justice, we have demonstrated time and again that Schneider Wallace is one of the preeminent trial firms in America.


Once we accept a case, we represent our clients at all stages of the litigation.  In our pursuit of our clients’ interests, we have argued cases in State Courts of Appeal, Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal, and the United States Supreme Court.  Our goal is simple:  We strive to obtain the best possible result for our clients.
