PRACTICE OF LITIGATION
Wilkinson, Goeller, Modesitt, Wilkinson & Drummy, LLP is in the upper tier of law firms trying cases in Indiana, both in number of cases tried yearly and accumulated experience of our attorneys. Our lawyers have tried cases in state and federal courts, concentrating in the southwest region of the state, and have been involved in asbestos litigation throughout the United States. Much of the firm’s litigation work is on behalf of insurance companies and corporations in the defense of personal injury suits. The firm’s longstanding philosophy has been to defend vigorously against these claims, especially those of questionable liability or value.  The firm has also developed strong credentials in the field of medical malpractice defense.  Malpractice litigation is highly technical, and our experience in handling malpractice litigation makes the firm especially suited to handling these cases. Our attorneys handle malpractice litigation from inception, preparing the necessary submissions to the medical review panel and continuing on to the trial setting when needed. Often these are high-profile cases which involve prominent physicians.

The firm’s trial practice includes mass tort litigation involving asbestos and silica claims. Raymond Modesitt has served as national trial counsel for several “target defendants” and has served as national coordinating counsel for several friction product manufacturing companies, including Fortune 500 companies. The firm has represented asbestos and silica clients at jury trials in more than 30 states or jurisdictions ranging from single claims to large consolidations of hundreds of claims.

The firm handles many other varieties of litigation such as declaratory judgment, injunctions, products liability, education-related matters (for both teachers and educational institutions), personal injury and employment law. Our attorneys have increasingly been involved in cases dealing with equal employment opportunity, age and gender discrimination, family medical leave, ADA, and wage and hour claims.

Often, cases are not complete when a jury returns a verdict. The firm has extensive experience in appellate work before the Indiana Court of Appeals, Indiana Supreme Court and Seventh United States Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago. Our attorneys have authored the necessary briefs and appeared in those appellate courts for oral argument.
