Haines & Associates is a boutique litigation firm located in Philadelphia, Pa.

Haines & Associates represents individuals and businesses facing likely litigation of a dispute. We concentrate our practice on claims of professional liability (legal and medical malpractice), catastrophic injury claims, business tort claims (tortious interference with contractual relations, commercial disparagement), breach of contract claims, employment discrimination claims, fraud claims, and harm to personal reputation (defamation). We have the experience to take the tough cases to trial.

We are experienced trial lawyers who will work to facilitate your desired outcome.

Anyone facing a legal dispute is looking for the best outcome as quickly as possible. While pre-trial settlement of that dispute is often the optimal result, that cannot always be achieved. If settlement doesn't work, the only remaining option is a trial. Our unique skill and experience in courtrooms gives us the upper hand when it comes to trial. We pride ourselves on our comfort standing at the bar of the court and presenting in front of juries. While we don't reject settlement, we prepare our cases as if we will try them, and our opponents know it. This puts us and our clients in the best position to achieve the best possible outcome.

Our Practice Areas

Haines & Associates focuses its practice on civil trial matters. We protect our clients’ financial, property, and personal interests by prosecuting and defending lawsuits on their behalf. We zealously represent both individuals and businesses.

We understand that litigation can be a distraction from daily personal life and business operations, whether one is a plaintiff or defendant. Our attorneys are skilled at listening to clients to understand their needs and expectations, and ensure that goals are achieved.

Our attorneys are experienced in litigating cases in state and federal courts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We also handle cases in other courts around the country on a per case basis when a client's needs require it.

In all litigation, our goal is to achieve a timely and just result for our clients. To this end, our attorneys are knowledgeable of the benefits of alternative dispute resolution, and have experience in using mediation and arbitration to obtain our clients’ desired outcome. However, at Haines & Associates, we are experienced trial attorneys and feel at home in the courtroom. We don’t shy from a jury—we thrive at trial.
