We Are Always Moving Forward
At Melito & Adolfsen P.C., we have a history of taking on new and challenging cases and areas of law. When a novel issue comes to us, we take a pragmatic approach to reaching a resolution.
The attorneys at our firm have a wide range of litigation experience spanning decades. When we began, the firm was a boutique practice with an appellate law focus. In the 1970s, the firm became involved in large-scale, massive tort litigation cases. We defended insurance companies against massive tort litigation nationwide and our firm was at the forefront every step of the way.
Expanded Practice — In The U.S.
Since our founding, our practice has greatly expanded into new and challenging areas of the law. Through our work in massive tort litigation, we developed a strong insurance coverage and insurance defense practice. We regularly advise insurance companies on a broad range of insurance coverage concerns. Our work has played a key role in developing the law in this practice area.
From our beginning in appellate law and insurance coverage, we have broadened our scope of practice to include professional liability defense, personal injury defense, arbitration and defense of all forms of casualty, business and commercial litigation.
Expanded Practice — Internationally
Over the last 10 years, we also developed a significant international practice representing clients in Europe and the Middle East. We have lawyers who speak, read and write Arabic, Hebrew, Russian and Spanish, which enables us to communicate in the native tongue of many of our international clients. We have also developed special expertise in terrorism claims, criminal defense of foreigners alleged to have violated U.S. law, investigation and compliance under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, defamation and RICO claims.
