Big Firm Capability.  Small Firm Adaptability.

Eleven shareholders, backed by a team of senior, seasoned associates, deliver big-firm results with a small firm's adaptability.  384 first-chaired jury trials.  115 first-chaired binding arbitrations. 86 Appeals.  Nineteen published opinions.  With no home office in another city (or state) to report to, Neil Dymott tailors each case to each client, from quick resolutions to complex jury trials.

Despite its modest size, Neil Dymott provides leadership to attorneys at the local, regional, national, and international levels.  Neil Dymott is home to three of the San Diego Defense Lawyers’ thirty presidents and is one of two San Diego firms to have a past-President of the Association of Southern California Defense Counsel.  Neil Dymott is only one of only four firms in San Diego with two attorneys in the America College of Trial Lawyers (consisting of <1% of attorneys in any state).  Neil Dymott is the only San Diego firm to have two members (one also being a past-president) in the Federation of Corporate and Defense Counsel (an invitation-only international organization with members specializing in defense litigation).
