Litigation is about results

For two decades, Corr Cronin has set the standard for high-stakes litigation in the Pacific Northwest.  Our attorneys are consistently ranked among the best in their field, and the firm is recognized time and again as one of the top litigation firms in Seattle.

We are trial lawyers, first and foremost.  We go to court, we try cases, and we win.  Corr Cronin’s practice areas are as broad as the clients and cases that take us to courtrooms across the country.  

Founded by former big law partners, we combine the sophistication and expertise of a big firm with the lean and client-centered focus of a boutique.  Our mission is simple:  win.

Chambers USA – Client Quote

“The client service at the firm is great. The lawyers fight to win, and are smart and practical.”

“They are practical, smart and efficient. They are very straightforward about how they approach litigation, keeping business needs in mind, yet also very nimble in their ability to react to changing situations or circumstances.”
“They are a high-end boutique,” confirms a peer. “They have four partners in the ACTL, which for a firm of 18 or so people is quite a lot.” Another peer concedes, “For Litigation, Corr Cronin is the firm to beat in Seattle. They are becoming a real ‘brand’ where clients coming to them with their hair on fire know that they’re going to get high-quality, trial-tested, ‘SWAT team’ litigation.”
