Hand Arendall has for more than 70 years maintained a reputation as one of the premier litigation firms in Alabama and the Southeast. Co-founded by preeminent trial lawyer Charlie Arendall, the firm today counts excellence in litigation as one of its hallmarks. Currently, more than half of the firm's lawyers engage in full-time litigation and trial work, making litigation the largest single practice area in the firm.

In handling litigation and alternative dispute resolution matters for its clients, Hand Arendall's goal has always been, and continues to be, to obtain optimum results for its clients in an efficient, professional manner. From basic personal injury disputes to the most complex securities or business tort cases, the firm staffs its cases with those lawyers in the firm most suited to achieve the best possible results for each client in each case.

While the firm does have a number of litigation practice teams whose lawyers have gained a breadth of knowledge and experience in particular areas of the law, many of the firm's trial lawyers try difficult cases of all types, demonstrating that good advocacy should not be limited by discrete administrative boundaries. The firm understands and respects the desire of most clients to "hire lawyers," not firms, and it places special emphasis on putting winning lawyers in the courtroom.
