Founded in 1993, Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky LLP is a top litigation law firm. Our AV-rated law firm is comprised of experienced trial attorneys who are committed to securing the best results possible for our clients. Our award winning lawyers have extensive experience litigating high-stakes cases in the areas of employment, civil rights, consumer rights, banking, business, commercial disputes, 401(k) fee litigation, securities, antitrust, and whistleblower cases.


Our attorneys are primarily admitted to practice in state and federal courts in California, Arizona, and Texas, multiple U.S. district courts and circuit courts, and the United States Supreme Court. We are also admitted in several other states. We have a national reach and regularly handle cases in partnership with local attorneys in jurisdictions throughout the United States. We regularly handle and try complex class actions, mass torts, commercial cases, and multidistrict litigation nationwide.


Our award-winning attorneys collaborate on complex cases to implement successful strategies that produce winning results for our clients. Our attorneys have been honored as Trial Lawyers of the Year and been granted various other honors.  Our lawyers have served as leaders in the most prominent bar groups.   Mr. Schneider was President of the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association, Vice President of the Consumer Attorneys of California, has been repeatedly appointed by the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court to serve on the California Civil Jury Instructions Task Force — the group that writes the state’s approved jury instructions.  We have former judicial clerks and law review editors on our team.   Our attorneys have been widely published and quoted in journals and in the national media.  We often serve as panel members at the most prestigious conferences.   We advocate for legal rules that support plaintiffs’ rights and hold posts and board member positions in top litigation organizations.

While we always assume that each case is going to trial, effective litigators know that mediation can sometimes present a more effective alternative to trial. Our attorneys are trained in alternative dispute resolution methods and have taken part in hundreds of mediations.   We believe that the best result is the one that accomplishes our clients’ goals and we always strive to deliver nothing less.
