Website LinkedIn The Norton Law Firm

The Norton Law Firm is a litigation boutique based in Oakland representing plaintiffs and defendants in complex civil litigation. We strive to practice law at the highest level, support one another as lawyers and as human beings, and to have fun doing it. Our clients don’t have one kind of legal problem, and we don’t specialize in one kind of law. We don’t have practice groups. You can have a long career litigating the same statute over and over again. You just can’t do it here. We are also a team, and everyone on the team plays. Our associates take and defend depositions, lead client meetings, define strategy, go to court, go to trial. That’s what lawyers at our firm do. Meaningful responsibility on important cases is not a perk we offer. It’s the minimum we expect. We think of law as a craft. We believe the practice of law requires aesthetics and creativity as well as discipline and rigor. We are committed to excellence in all these aspects because we are determined to win for our clients, but also because winning without excellence would be small and shabby and grim. We practice excellence.
