Bienert Katzman Littrell Williams LLP, one of Orange County’s top boutique litigation firms, is proud to announce that five of our firm’s attorneys — Thomas Bienert, Steven Katzman, John Littrell, Michael Williams, and James Riddet — have been chosen for the 2021 Southern California Super Lawyers list.

“I’m very pleased that Jim, John, Mike and Steve again have been recognized as Super Lawyers. They are among the most talented lawyers I know, each capable of successfully leading any case from inception through trial,” said founding partner Thomas Bienert. “Their wealth of knowledge and willingness to collaborate greatly helps both our clients and the rest of us working in the firm.”

Only the top 5 percent of attorneys in the region are recognized as Super Lawyers based on peer recognition and professional achievement. Nearly half of BKLW’s attorneys are on the distinguished list, several of whom have been named many consecutive years.
