About Judith

Learn Judith’s areas of practice.

Judith Ann Pavey has 40 years of experience in litigation and litigation related alternative dispute resolution. She began her litigation career while still in law school where she received a special certification from the Indiana Supreme Court to act as a prosecutor on criminal cases in Marion County juvenile, misdemeanor and felony courts. Upon graduation she was hired by a high-profile litigator in Hawai‘i, where she established her reputation as a skillful and successful lawyer in criminal, personal injury and other civil litigation matters.  After 7 years, in 1985 Ms. Pavey started her own firm and continued to focus primarily on plaintiffs’ personal injury cases, including those involving medical/legal malpractice and defective products causing substantial physical and/or economic damages. She also continued to handle selected criminal, wrongful termination and sexual harassment cases and worked on construction and contract litigation as well.

Ms. Pavey was one of the lead litigators representing minority shareholders in a closely held corporation involving a federally regulated institution in which both direct and derivative claims were prosecuted. That was successfully resolved in 2008.  That lawsuit brought her to Starn O’Toole Marcus & Fisher in September 2008 where she will continue to work on commercial and corporate litigation matters, as well as professional negligence cases involving serious physical and economic damages.
