Why MF?

We view the practice of litigation differently. Our approach extends beyond legal strategies and tactics

  • Trial Experience

    We try cases.  Every single one of our lawyers, including our most junior associate, has trial experience.  Adversaries know we stand ready to fight for our clients all the way through trial and appeal, often defeating some of the largest firms in the country.

  • On-The-Ground Knowledge

    With over 50 years of experience in Silicon Valley, we have deep knowledge of the courts, juries, and legal community.  Over the decades, we have built a strong reputation for integrity and tenacious advocacy.  

  • Results

    We harness our experience with creative, strategic, and nimble thinking to get the best possible results for our clients.  We routinely obtain excellent verdicts on behalf of clients in commercial cases, family law, employment, criminal, and civil rights cases.

  • Dedication

    We love what we do.  Whether arguing cases in front of the California Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, another civil, family, or criminal court, or an arbitration panel, we treat every case as the most important case in the world.  It is the most important case in the world to the client we serve.    

  • Commitment to Justice

    Inside and outside the courtroom, we fight for equal justice for all, including vulnerable, minority, and politically unpopular groups.  We reflect this commitment in our pro bono cases, and our attorneys’ extensive support of community groups.
