MIKE WIMER, ESQ.
Mike Wimer is a civil trial attorney and the firm’s chief legal strategist. He focuses his practice on complex trial matters with substantial issues of law, damages, and where large numbers of people are adversely affected. During his nearly three decades as a litigator, he has tried jury cases involving bad faith insurance claims, construction disputes, commercial contract cases, partnership disputes, employment law, personal injury, and many other areas of civil practice.
Mike has the stamina, fortitude and passion to stay the course in complex cases where the adversary is often a large corporation and a big law firm with unlimited resources. As proof, one of his class actions recently settled after almost eight years of litigation. It takes a unique law firm and a special breed of lawyer to pursue complex litigation against the nation’s largest corporations, banks, and other well-financed defendants. Mike is a tireless advocate and believes that absolute justice is the ultimate goal for every client, even if that means his firm may sometimes have to wait years to get paid for their legal work.
