For over 17 years, commercial litigator and defamation lawyer Lee Berlik has been providing effective representation for individuals and business owners throughout Virginia.  Having spent most of his career with large law firms employing 500-750 attorneys, Lee decided he could offer his clients increased responsiveness, greater value, and better service by opening his own law firm devoted to meeting client objectives and achieving results at a minimum of expense. That firm is BerlikLaw.

Lee has earned a reputation as not only a highly effective Virginia trial lawyer, but one who understands and appreciates the need for efficiency and litigation cost control. The firm keeps its overhead low by, among other things, using highly skilled, experienced contract attorneys, allowing the firm to strategically manage its fluctuating caseload without the need to pay inflated salaries. Such practices allow the firm's attorneys to charge rates that are but a tiny fraction of what these same attorneys charged at their former "Big Law" firms.

Our lawyers appear regularly in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (a highly efficient federal court known as the "rocket docket"), as well as in circuit courts throughout Virginia, both as lead counsel and local counsel. Our diverse practice includes breach-of-contract disputes, trademark infringement litigation, copyright enforcement, trade-secret protection, defamation, fraud, discrimination claims, and many other areas that commonly affect small and large business alike.

Here at BerlikLaw, we are committed to protecting the interests of our clients with diligence, promptness, and zeal.  Give us a call, and get the representation your business needs without breaking the bank.
