Our broad practice also takes us into courtrooms across the country in both state and federal courts. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial matters.

Legal Services

Solowsky & Allen is a boutique litigation firm handling a wide range of commercial and contract litigation, as well as matters in other practice areas. Our greatest success came in a 15-year long class action against Exxon Mobil that resulted in a verdict of over $1 billion and went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The case received nationwide attention and recognition for our firm and our lawyers.

Our clients include individuals as well as businesses of all sizes in many industries and markets. We are a general litigation firm. Through our extensive litigation experience in many venues and for many different types of litigation, our Miami attorneys are skilled in handling virtually any litigation in any court.

Exceptional Client Service

When you become a client of Solowsky & Allen, our goal is to deliver the highest quality legal service and extraordinary client service.

With the combination of our broad legal experience, keen business acumen, and proven devotion to the community, our attorneys bring an exceptionally well-rounded perspective to addressing our clients’ needs.

Our flexibility in approach extends to our fees. We are not limited to hourly billing. In appropriate situations, we also provide services on flat or contingency fees.
