Unique Approach

Since 1996, Killeen and Stern has provided both plaintiffs and defendants with creative legal solutions. Actively working with all kinds of clients gives the attorneys at Killeen and Stern flexibility and perspective unmatched by rival firms. Our emphasis on attorney-client relationships often leads us to employ methods that aren’t being used by many other firms--methods that streamline our approach.

We have developed highly effective and cost efficient litigation processes. We treat both our per-hour clients and contingent fee cases with the same diligence and respect. And after thirteen years, we’ve developed a keen insight on what’s important when it comes to winning court cases (and what’s not). We believe that a successful attorney-client relationship is built on trust and integrity.  We don’t do things like everybody else…and that’s exactly what sets us apart.
