Firm

Prior to forming McQueen & Ashman LLP in 1999, our attorneys spent the majority of their careers practicing at large national and international law firms, handling commercial litigation and business transactions for publicly traded companies, small, medium and large private companies, entrepreneurs and high net-worth individuals. Today, we bring our big-firm expertise and experience to a small-firm environment where we can charge less for the same, high-quality legal services.

At McQueen & Ashman LLP,  your important legal matter will not be delegated to less experienced associates, as often happens at a large law firm. Instead, you will be dealing with senior-level attorneys who bring an average of over 20 years of experience to your legal matter.

Our practice emphasizes business and real estate litigation, Creditors’ Rights, Bankruptcy, Commercial Debt Collection, and business and real estate transactions. For example, in a recent fraudulent inducement case involving the sale of a business in Orange County, our attorneys convinced the jury that our client should be relieved of an obligation to pay $2 million for the business and paid compensatory damages in the amount of $765,000, plus attorneys’ fees.

We believe that aggressive representation is the best way to get you the results you expect in a negotiation, arbitration, or trial, and we put that belief into action every day. By showing our adversaries we are prepared for trial, we achieve far better settlements than attorneys who take on cases merely to settle them. And if your case does go to trial, our track record shows that you have an excellent chance of success.

Our primary source of new clients are referrals from existing clients and attorneys. In appropriate cases, we pay referral fees to the referring attorney. We are AV* rated under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer-review legal rating system. This rating demonstrates that our attorneys have earned the highest rating possible for their legal ability and professional ethics.

We are located in the Newport Gateway Towers at MacArthur Boulevard and Fairchild in Irvine, California. For more information, or to schedule a free consultation, call 949-223-9601 and ask to speak with James McQueen or Phillip Ashman, or complete our simple contact form.
