Powell Trachtman Logan Carrle & Lombardo, P.C. was formed in 1988 by attorneys who believed that the accepted model of what law firms do and how they do it needed to be re-engineered—legal services as they were typically delivered were not consistently adding value to the business clients being served.

We developed a different methodology, comprised of the following precepts:

  • We reject the "corporatization" of the practice of law.
  • We really focus on the prevention of litigation.
  • We reject the dominant trend toward sub-specialization in the law.
  • We understand that law firms are service businesses.
  • We manage overhead and costs by leveraging technology.

See the Our Approach section of our website for more details.

Our methods work, particularly in challenging times and, as a result, Powell Trachtman has been recognized as one of the most successful firms in the region.

We provide a full range of services to businesses, business owners, executives, and investors, including litigation and dispute resolution, risk management, employment law, business counseling, business transactions, intellectual property protection, real estate transactions, contract drafting, estate planning, and much more. Our clients include large, small, start-up, and mature companies engaged in a wide variety of enterprises. We are regularly retained by insurance carriers to protect the interests of design professionals, accounting firms, law firms, universities, major manufacturers and many other businesses. Our attorneys have been recognized by bar associations, professional associations, law schools and national publications.

Most of all, we prevent and, when necessary, solve our clients problems. Please click on the Problems Prevented and Solved section of our website for a sampling of some of our recent accomplishments.

We look forward to working with you.
