Litigation/Trial Consulting

In a courtroom, experience matters. In the last 10 years, we have obtained 3 of the top ten defense verdicts in Arizona. We know not all cases go to trial, or should go to trial. But wouldn’t you rather hire a lawyer who has been there before and the other side knows that? This isn’t our first rodeo.

Not only can we try your case, we can help evaluate your case for trial, monitor your case, or step in at the last minute to partner with you as co-counsel at trial.

Whether you hire us from the beginning of a case, or we come in to assist you at trial, our team will provide you with a competitive advantage both in and out of the courtroom.

Road Design/Transportation

Defending road design cases not only requires knowledge of Arizona law, including immunity defenses and special statutes, but also proficiency in guidelines published by American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), ADOT Guidelines and Standard Drawings, the Arizona and National Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), NCHRP, and federal transportation statutes and regulations. We have worked with these guidelines for decades, and don't need to get up to speed for your case on your dime.

We have also worked with traffic engineers, accident reconstructionists, biomechanical engineers, barrier experts, and human factor experts to assist juries and judges in understanding the dynamics of crashes and roadway design. We have handled claims arising out of roadway engineering, construction, plans, traffic control, guardrail, median barrier, maintenance, clear zone, and signing.

Kathleen Wieneke has handled and tried median barrier design and construction cases for over 25 years. In the last 5 years, we were honored to have our road design case involving median barrier design be included as one of the top ten defense verdicts in Arizona.

The Wieneke Law Group can provide you with exceptional representation arising out of negligent roadway design and maintenance claims.
