“Obtaining results for our clients through zealous advocacy, creative and cost-effective strategies, and experience.”

BerlikLaw is a results-driven, AV-rated law firm specializing in business litigation, defamation law, and the resolution of business disputes. Located in Reston and with additional client meeting locations throughout Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia, the firm handles complex commercial litigation, libel and slander issues, intellectual property disputes, non-compete claims, business torts, and all forms of civil litigation. The firm offers counseling and advice on ways to avoid litigation, including innovative legal solutions and strategies, but when your business is left with no reasonable alternative but to pursue or defend litigation or arbitration, BerlikLaw is the firm you want in your corner.

The firm's sole owner and member, Lee E. Berlik, has teamed up with various "of counsel" attorneys to assist individuals and businesses based in Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Alexandria, and Northern Virginia, and are frequently involved in cases pending in other Virginia jurisdictions such as Richmond and Norfolk. Berlik and his affiliated lawyers serve clients from meeting space in Reston, Tysons Corner, Alexandria, and Leesburg, at locations convenient to the area's state and federal courthouses.

For nearly 20 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.
