The attorneys of Colucci & Gallaher, P.C., place special focus on insurance and self-insured defense litigation. The firm's litigation attorneys take a goal-oriented approach to resolving disputes. This approach involves more than a mere understanding of procedural and substantive rules, and especially requires sensitivity for the client's expectations, goals and budget. Within this framework, Colucci & Gallaher, P.C., makes timely recommendations for the handling of litigation based upon sound business judgment principles.
Litigation attorneys regularly appear at all levels of the state and federal court systems and have years of experience in the following areas:

- Business and Commercial Litigation

- Construction Litigation
- Contract Litigation
- Environmental Litigation
- Estates and Trusts Litigation
- Municipal and Public Authority Liability

The firm does not pass off cases to others; in fact, typically the same attorney will see a case through discovery, trial and appeal at all levels of state and federal court.
The firm accepts insurance defense cases regionally and nationwide, as its attorneys are admitted permanently in many states and get admitted pro hac vice where necessary.
The firm's representation of self-insured clients has required its attorneys to become involved in a variety of legal matters unique to each client. Several self-insured clients, for example, operate retail businesses with claims relating to snow and ice conditions, design liability, maintenance, wrongful detention, discrimination claims and dram shop (liquor) liability.
Attorneys representing self-insured clients have defended the operation of supermarkets, product manufacturers, horse racing facilities, concessionaires, trade associations and transportation companies. Defending claims for these clients frequently involves issues of contractual liability, tort liability, statutory liability (e.g., dram shop laws, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations, labor laws, copyright laws, state and federal discrimination statutes, Federal Hazardous Substances Act regulations, environmental laws) and insurance coverage.
