Our Mission

Lockaby PLLC opened its doors on March 1, 2016, with one guiding principle: service.

To achieve our uncompromising mission, we reject the outdated legal industry custom that a firm must represent either plaintiffs or defendants, employees or employers, individuals or businesses—but not both. We instead take an entrepreneurial approach to the practice of law, all to the benefit of our clients. Our experience representing employers and employees, startups and Fortune 500 companies, and individuals and businesses of all sizes gives us a unique and balanced perspective that allows us to more fully and accurately evaluate each client’s situation, appropriately assess each client’s risks, and provide sound, reasoned, and pragmatic advice.

No matter the client, our focus is the same: to provide vigorous yet transparent representation tailored to resolve each client’s specific problem and achieve each client’s goals as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. In a word, service.

By some measures, 97 percent of all civil cases never proceed to trial. Some are dismissed by the court and others are voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff, but many more reach a settlement well before trial.

So why do so many cases take so long to make their way through the court system? Yes, some cases are rather complex, some involve a large number of parties, and some simply need the time to accommodate unique demands. But many other cases stall in the court system because they are not vigorously pursued or defended — even though the chances of that case going to trial are slim and a settlement most likely. We believe there’s never an excuse to delay a successful outcome for a client.

At Lockaby PLLC, we deliberately and aggressively work up your case, meet court-ordered deadlines, and do everything we can to push your case forward at every opportunity. We proactively prepare your case as if it’s going to trial, because that’s the only way to maximize leverage and bargaining power at mediation.

When we take your case, you can rest assured that we believe you, we believe in you, and we believe in your cause. That’s our approach. Let us show you the Lockaby PLLC difference.
