Founded in 1998, Emery Celli Brinckerhoff Abady Ward & Maazel LLP solves problems. Drawing from our unique blend of practices in vanguard civil rights, complex commercial disputes, attorney ethics, and criminal defense, we provide every client a tailored approach to the challenge they face. We represent large companies or solitary plaintiffs, class action disputes or single claims. ECBAWM lawyers treat clients—and their challenges—as the individuals they are.
We come from a tradition of success. Our attorneys have succeeded in the nation’s top law schools and honed their skills in prestigious federal clerkships, leading national law firms, elite criminal defense organizations, and diverse government service.
We solve problems creatively. Our goal is to obtain your objective swiftly and efficiently. Our blend of civil rights, criminal, ethics, and commercial litigation—and the varied disputes within those practice areas—gives us the experience to see unique solutions to each case we handle. Our lawyers begin each case with a blank slate to create the right strategy to obtain our clients’ goals, whether they are a corporation in a contract dispute, a class of workers denied fair wages, someone wrongfully convicted of murder, or attorneys seeking counsel in discipline matters—and everyone in between.
At heart, we are trial lawyers. Our attorneys have won cases in both federal and state courts, in jury trials, arbitrations, attorney discipline proceedings, and all levels of appeals, including the Supreme Court of the United States. We are as comfortable in the court room as we are in the board room. While not every case needs to be tried to verdict, our attorneys are prepared to see our cases through to the finish.
