HPTY offers the resources and experience to represent clients nationally in a wide array of practice areas. While trial success has always been a hallmark of HPTY, our attorneys are well equipped to serve their clients’ interests to the best result possible. With decades of experience, HPTY is uniquely qualified to provide its clients with the best means of achieving the client’s particular litigation solution, whether it be leveraging a favorable settlement or dismissal, taking a case to verdict at trial, or advocating at the appellate level.  HPTY attorneys use their vast volume of experience to tailor and execute the most well-informed defense for each of the firm’s clients.

HPTY actively supports various legal organizations such as the American Bar Association, Defense Research Institute, PLAC, and International Association of Insurance Counsel.  In addition, HPTY is a charter member of the ALFA International Global Legal Network which provides the firm with first class legal resources to meet the needs of clients wherever and whenever they may arise.
