Experience

For more than 40 years, Alan Hirth has stood “between the client and harm’s way” as a trial attorney focusing his practice on business and employment disputes and white-collar criminal defense, trademark and probate disputes. Having tried lawsuits in Ohio, New York, Florida, California, Louisiana, Michigan, Texas, Illinois and Connecticut, he has refined his craft by combining court room experience and carefully studying successful trial lawyers and other persuasive speakers. Alan has represented healthcare, insurance and manufacturing companies in matters involving enforcement of restrictive employment covenants, breach of contract claims involving sales of steel and related items, defense of and enforcement of trademark claims and enforcement of non-circumvention agreements. His “aggressive yet practical approach to litigation and to detailed preparation” has been a cornerstone to the success of his practice.

Outside the office, Alan is a dog lover with a passion for mystery novels and movies.
