For more than two decades DeHay & Elliston has provided exceptional legal services.

Since 1992...

Integrity, professionalism, and dedication to its clients are guiding principles at DeHay & Elliston, L.L.P. With unwavering loyalty to such principles, the attorneys and professional staff of DE diligently pursue the fulfillment of every client's litigation objective. Each case is valued as an opportunity to uphold and elevate the standard of excellence by which the legal profession should be judged.

The mighty oak has traditionally been a symbol of strength and character. The commitment of DE to excellence and professionalism is firmly rooted in the legacy of J. Carlisle DeHay Jr., a legendary trial lawyer and consummate gentleman.

DE is recognized for its expertise in the defense of toxic tort, products liability, premises liability, medical/legal malpractice, professional negligence, general negligence and commercial litigation. The experience gained by defending complex medical and scientific issues often promotes DE attorneys to leadership positions at the trials of large multi-party litigation. This ever expanding knowledge gained from defending complex medical/legal issues allows the firm to provide a more cost-effective defense as education and preparation time is significantly reduced. Experience with experts from a wide field of disciplines eliminates the need to educate counsel on many important aspects of most cases.

DE earned its reputation for excellence in the defense of lawsuits involving personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, premises liability, medical and legal malpractice, toxic tort and insurance bad faith.

The partners of DE play active roles in various defense litigation organizations and publish and present articles on the medical/legal subjects of current interest, including claims relating to pulmonary medicine, carcinogenicity, toxicology, medical monitoring, trial tactics, and standards of care for medical and legal services.

The attorneys of DE are joined by common goals and beliefs about the art of trial advocacy and the practice of law. Preparation has long been recognized as the most essential element of effective courtroom advocacy. The firm also recognizes that its reputation is based upon the talent, experience and ethical standards of its attorneys and professional support staff -- each attorney, paralegal and secretary.
