Trials and Arbitrations

Elite Trial Lawyers

National Law Journal, 2018

“In my 35+ years of business, they are the best litigation firm I’ve worked with. They are extremely intelligent and knowledgeable, which enables them to quickly pick up the most complex matters and run with them.”

A. Mack Pogue, Founder and Chairman of the Board Lincoln Property Co. Dallas, TX

“Craig Simon is my go-to lawyer for our company’s most important business disputes. He is a highly skilled trial lawyer who is confident and effective going up against lawyers in the largest firms in the nation. The outstanding work done by Craig, Matt Ray, and others in their firm was instrumental in positioning us to favorably resolve an arbitration matter against several large public utilities that was critical to our company’s success.”

Clark A. Moseley, CEO, Navajo Transitional Energy Company

“In the 30-years I have been in business in Dallas, Jim Flegle is the best trial attorney I have ever seen. He is always prepared and is very skillful in handling witnesses and juries. Jim has represented businesses in which I have been involved in three jury trials. All resulted in judgments in our favor. Two judgments were in excess of $1 million each. The lawsuits involved insurance commissions, oil and gas production issues and real estate joint ventures. Jim has a good business judgment and in a fight, I want him on my side.”

Curtis Leggett, Independent Oil and Gas Operator and Accountant, Dallas, Texas

“Faced with a rapidly evolving financial picture and an uncooperative debtor aligned with senior bondholders, Dan Winikka and Craig Simon skillfully guided the GSI Group equity committee through a contested confirmation hearing on valuation and ultimately to a creative, negotiated resolution that enabled pre-bankruptcy stockholders to retain control of the company. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any complex bankruptcy litigation matter.”

Stephen Bershad, Chairman of the Board of Directors of GSI Group, Inc.

“If anyone asked me who I’d hire if my back was against the wall; its a no brainer… Alan Loewinsohn.”

Gregory S. Courtwright, Chief Operating Officer, Lincoln Property Company

“David Deary’s and W. Ralph Canada, Jr.’s experience with sophisticated tax shelter transactions and litigation is beyond impressive. Together, Deary and Canada handled some of the most important and high-profile tax shelter malpractice cases of the last ten years.”

Jay A. Soled, Tax Shelter Malpractice Cases and Their Implications for Tax Compliance, 58 American Univ. L. Rev. 279 (2008)

“I worked closely with Dan Winikka throughout our chapter reorganization proceedings over more than a four year period. Dan is a high caliber restructuring lawyer with an unwavering commitment to client service. He was faced with - and tackled - countless complex issues and was an effective advocate for us throughout the process. Beyond that, Dan is a very effective communicator, easy to work with and someone that worked well with people throughout our organization. I would highly recommend Dan for any complex business restructuring matter.”

John M. Donnan, Executive Vice President, Legal, Compliance and Human Resources, Kaiser Aluminum

“I have worked closely with Craig Simon and Dan Winikka for several years on a complex cross-border chapter 11 case and several related disputes in litigation and arbitration. Dan's deep understanding of bankruptcy law and Craig's well-honed litigation skills and instincts make them a formidable team. Unlike many lawyers, they do not shy away from assessing cases, and they consistently deliver positive results. Their strategic thinking and creativity were instrumental in the negotiated resolution of over $1.7 billion in claims against our client in bankruptcy. When a case needs to be tried, they are not afraid to tee it up. Craig's accounting background makes him particularly adept at the examination of expert witnesses with respect to financial issues; we achieved a tremendous victory at trial.”

Scott T. Ryan, General Counsel, Qimonda North America Corp. Trustee, QR and QNA Liquidating Trusts

“Jim Flegle was our trial counsel in the defense of one of our basic patents before a federal jury in Texas. Jim went out of his way to be thoroughly prepared, clearly understood the patent and technical issues involved and developed a masterful strategy for the presentation of our case. We won a favorable jury verdict on all counts, including damages and willful infringement. From my perspective, there are none better than Jim Flegle.”

Dr. J. William Doane, Director Emeritus Liquid Crystal Institute, Professort Emeritus Physics, Kent State University CTO and Cofounder, Kent Displays, Inc., Kent, Ohio

“I was involved in a dispute over stock options with a Fortune 500 company that would not even return my phone calls. Jim Flegle and the lawyers in his firm represented me and in 2002 obtained a jury verdict and judgment for the amount of losses I incurred and attorney's fees. We subsequently settled. The amount of the judgment exceeded $1 million. I appreciate their professional approach to addressing the issues as well as their sincere interest in me as an individual.”

Marvin Applewhite, Retired Executive, Mineola, Texas

“Jim Flegle is that rare litigator: a lawyer's lawyer who has brought smiles to the faces of federal and state judges for his precision, clarity and competence with which he handles complex litigation issues; and a lawyer with a down-home Kentucky charm who can strip difficult legal concepts to their essence and explain them simply to arbitrators and juries. I have had the privilege and pleasure of watching Jim accomplish these feats over the past 20 years in cases ranging from commercial fraud to domestic and international litigation.”

Lana B. Latchford, Former Senior Counsel for Mobil Oil Corp & Former Associate General Counsel for Triton Energy Corporation, Dallas, Texas

“When my company was facing elimination from the oil field services business by the actions of our largest competitor, we turned to Jim Flegle for help. He spearheaded our strategy to pursue claims for federal antitrust violations, including conduct in a foreign country, defamation and tortuous interference with our contracts. Jim diligently represented us in our federal court action with the highest degree of professionalism and accuracy. Due in no small part to his tenacity and perseverance on our behalf, we were able to achieve a successful settlement.”

T.E. Kelly, President, Oilwell Hydraulics, Inc., Odessa, Texas
