Dedicated Attorneys Guide You Through the Process

The experienced attorneys at Olenn & Penza pride themselves on being able to represent their clients with knowledge, energy and passion. All of the Olenn & Penza attorneys handle their own files from start to finish, including trial. We have extensive in-house training to make each attorney an effective litigator. We plan for trial from the beginning and prepare accordingly.


Our trials are conducted in state and federal court and are done on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants in all of our practice areas. We have extensive experience in the representation of a broad range of clients in matters involving :

•  Admiralty & Marine
•  Construction
•  Business & Commercial disputes
•  Corporate law
•  Professional liability

•  Insurance
•  Labor
•  Police & Fire
•  Personal injury

Settling Disputes, Finding Common Ground

Being trial ready allows us to resolve matters favorably in those circumstances when for personal or privacy reasons neither you nor the other party desires to litigate in the eye of the public in a state or federal court. In such cases, private arbitration, mediation, or another form of alternative dispute resolution is more appropriate. In addition, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) provides a faster and more cost-effective alternative to traditional litigation.

Our litigators have been involved in all aspects of ADR from representing clients to serving as arbitrator and/or mediator for others in state and federal court matters.
