Who Are We?

A Team of Dedicated Defense Attorneys

Porter, Porter & Hassinger, P.C. was founded in 1986 as a litigation and corporate law firm. We represent individual and corporate clients in Alabama and across the United States in a wide range of matters, including insurance defense, workers' compensation, municipal liability, employment law, wills and probate law, and product's liability.

We pride ourselves on our ability to formulate creative solutions to seemingly intractable problems. Importantly, we view litigation not as an end in itself, but as a tool to be used judiciously, when negotiations will not achieve a client's desired results, or to encourage the parties to a negotiated settlement as quickly as possible. Almost all clients are seeking a resolution to a business problem and litigation is seen by us as leverage to achieve a business result. We are not averse to using the full panoply of dispute resolution alternatives when appropriate, often at substantial cost savings, and we have extensive experience in this area.

Conversely, some matters simply cannot be settled, and the Firm has significant trial experience in the federal and state courts. Often the specter of a trial by lawyers who are fully prepared to try cases will ultimately bring about a negotiated solution to a dispute. When litigation is required, we practice it with tenacity and in accordance with the highest standards of professional excellence. In order to maximize efficiency and minimize costs, we do not over staff cases, yet we are careful to give each matter all of the time and attention it requires.
