Personal.  timely.  Focused.


We aren’t big, but when it comes to legal representation, big doesn’t always equal better. Rather, effective legal representation is personal, timely, and focused. And that is our mission: to provide our clients with real value through personalized service and attention, and individually-tailored representation.  

Over the course of nearly thirty years, and with over 200 collective years of litigation and trial experience among its strong team of lawyers, Anderson & Karrenberg has earned its reputation for successful, sophisticated, and tenacious advocacy in jury and bench trials, administrative proceedings, bankruptcies, significant appeals, and transactional matters. What we do, we do well.  

As a tightknit group of lawyers, we offer individualized attention and greater flexibility to our clients. Whatever your dispute might be, and whatever time pressures you’re under, we make sure that we understand your business and your goals so that we can tailor our representation to achieve your objectives as quickly and efficiently as possible.  

Our collaborative, hands-on approach to legal representation is unmatched; we draw from our lawyers’ collective expertise to ensure our clients receive the highest caliber of representation for their money. We also have the depth and resources to handle complex litigation matters and transactional disputes. Having taken hundreds of cases to trial, we have the capacity and endurance to master every element of a case and to see any dispute through to the end, if necessary.

Many of our lawyers have been recognized by their peers and in reputable national publications as among the “best-of-the-best.”  As a firm, Anderson & Karrenberg also has been consistently listed by Best Lawyers®, U.S. News Media Group, and Chambers USA as among the best law firms for commercial litigation in the region.

Prominent corporations entrust us with their complex litigation, small businesses enlist us on transactional matters and bet-the-company cases, and individuals come to us to resolve their disputes, all for the same reasons: our unwavering commitment to our clients and our demonstrated ability to deliver results through individualized, strategic, collaborative, and smart representation.  

We look forward to serving you.

Steve Dougherty has been our attorney for over 30 years, successfully representing our family in many real estate transactions, some of which were quite complicated. Besides his role as advisor, he has also become our trusted friend. I can’t think of a better person to care for our needs.
— Robert Friedman, Trustee, The Miller Trust
Steve Dougherty has been my lawyer since the mid-90’s and has been and continues to be a valued ally for me. His counsel is matter of fact, to the point, and he does not have to be managed (which to me is important). I have referred plenty of other clients to Steve and they have thanked me for it.
