Background

Starting on January 1, 2011, the owners of the law firms of McKeighan Pierce PC (est. 2003) and DiCarlo Caserta & Phelps PLLC (est. 2005) combined their practices into a new and more dynamic firm known as DiCarlo Caserta McKeighan & Phelps PLC. The new firm marries a strong complex litigation practice with an established business transactions and estate planning practice, while maintaining an emphasis on personal relationships that are fostered in a small firm setting. The litigation practice emphasizes complex commercial litigation, contingent commercial litigation (including accounting malpractice matters), and personal injury matters. The transactional practice focuses on businesses and business owners, including contracts, business sales and purchases, entity formation and governance, real estate and other asset transactions, and estate and succession planning.

The firm is founded upon the long-standing principle of personal relationships. There was a time when all goods were hand-made by local craftspeople These artisans took great pride in their work and stood behind their products and services for the simple reason that they and their customers lived and worked in the very same community. Today, technology allows products and services to be delivered far and wide, regardless of geography. However, the members of DiCarlo Caserta McKeighan & Phelps PLC believe that personal relationships remain the core of a successful practice. The firm strives to ensure that our client relationships are founded upon honesty, integrity, accountability and personal communication.
