About Us


LGO has developed a reputation as an innovative leader in construction defect litigation. Our ideal is to provide the highest level of personal and professional service for each client. Protecting your interests is our first priority from initial consultation to final resolution. The firm represents developers and general contractors in all aspects of construction-defect litigation. Our practice includes defense of claims involving commercial, residential, industrial, government municipal and high-rise developments.  We are committed to pursuing all possible options for transferring risk to third parties to reduce exposure, while providing creative, thoughtful solutions to complex construction-defect claims.

We have the resources, background and ability to protect your interests before, during and after litigation — regardless of your situation. Our track record has helped us grow into one of the top law firms in San Diego County, and we now offer legal services in San Francisco, Phoenix, Seattle, Portland, Las Vegas, Denver and Albuquerque. This success can be attributed to our firm’s ability to achieve successful, cost-effective results through efficient team management, aggressive representation and a continuing partnership with our clients.

However, not all situations can be resolved out of court. When handling your litigation, we make every effort to control costs and accelerate resolution. You receive early evaluation and regular reporting on the status of your case. When appropriate, early settlement is sought. The final verdict can be anticipated to help you evaluate various options early. The lessons we have learned in these areas greatly enhance our ability to deal with the entire spectrum of insurance defense cases.

Choosing a law firm is an extremely important decision. It should take into account not only the firm’s experience, but also its vision. With LGO, you can feel confident that a knowledgeable, unique and discerning approach will be taken for every one of your legal matters.

Our approach to diversity is very straightforward: it’s about including and welcoming everyone. From cultivating a culture where all employees can bring their best selves to work to embracing diversity initiatives that support everyone equally. Each day we strive to do what it takes to build a more equitable workplace within our firm, in our community and with our clients and vendors.
