“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.
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.
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.
Last fall, Mr. Berlik assisted our family with, what was for us, a major lawsuit involving business, commercial property, and management agreements. Throughout the anxiety-provoking, frustrating ordeal, Mr. Berlik was the consummate professional.
Lee Berlik handled a breach of contract case for me against a defendant who fought every attempt to resolve the case in a reasonable manner. Lee was a superb client advocate and at all times I felt he was handling the case in my absolute best interest while still managing my expectations.
I am so glad I hired Lee Berlik to fight an insurance company on my behalf. Lee provided valuable insight, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and clearly knew how to present the facts of my case in the best possible light.
