I am a Founding Partner of Ford & Diulio PC: A boutique litigation firm consisting of former “BigLaw” lawyers who believe that our success is directly related to the value we provide and results that we achieve for our clients.

Our attorneys specialize in three primary areas: Personal Injury, Business Disputes, and Labor & Employment.

Ford & Diulio is not your traditional law firm. We have extensive experience working on high-value cases from all perspectives: plaintiffs, defendants, and even as part of the judiciary – Brendan and Kris both served as federal law clerks before entering private practice. Clients benefit from this experience.

We also believe that our fee arrangements with our clients should reflect our aligned interests. To that end, we offer a vast array of alternative fee arrangements, including pure contingency, hybrid, phased billing, and others. Our goal is to create a fee structure where we are rewarded for achieving our clients’ goals and delivering great results in the most efficient manner possible.

Referrals are the lifeblood of a law firm.  We welcome them, we appreciate them, and we pay for them consistent with State Bar rules.  We promise that all of your referrals will receive premium service and care, and that we will work tirelessly to get the best result possible.

Mr. Ford reviewed my case and gave me an honest assessment of my claims. Contacted the company I had the issues with so that he could try to resolve my claims without my having to go to small claims court.

| Consulted Attorney
I highly recommend Brendan Ford. He is efficient, has great interpersonal and communication skills, is thorough, logical and extremely fair. He came highly recommended to me through a family member who is also a lawyer and he certainly held up to his expectations. I will use Brendan again in the future as well as referring my friends to him.
