Profile

Lori Werderitch works hard to resolve clients’ worst nightmares and diffuse the stress that accompanies business or bankruptcy litigation. “At the end, when your client says ‘Thank you,’ you know you’ve made a difference in their life,” says Lori.

An experienced litigator who handles a broad spectrum of matters for L.A. businesses of all sizes, high-net-worth individuals, and bankruptcy estate trustees, Lori strives to produce a sense of well-being—peace of mind—for her clients by making herself accessible 24/7 during critical times, and communicating with them openly and thoroughly.

“I’m very responsive,” says Lori, answering calls and emails immediately when she can and getting back to clients promptly when she can’t. “I know how stressful litigation is, so I am committed to help my clients through it, no matter what it takes. I’ll sit and explain for as long as needed, until they fully understand what’s going on, or where we are in the process.”

Complex litigation.

One such client in a large bankruptcy litigation featured in the local news was “understandably very worried,” says Lori. Her team sorted and organized unique and complex issues, dealt with a tough, well-funded opposition, and negotiated a settlement on the eve of trial.

Cost-effectiveness and value.

Lori also helps reduce client stress with bottom-line cost-effectiveness. “I try to be as efficient as possible, delivering the best product for the best value,” she says. That applies to pre-litigation investigation and counseling, an array of functions for her local clients in breach-of-contract disputes and real estate litigation, or protracted, complicated, high-stakes trials and appeals. 

High quality work.

Lori enjoys working with other respected Greenberg Glusker litigators and transactional attorneys.

“I’m proud to work at Greenberg Glusker. We have an exceptionally talented team that puts us on a par with the largest firms in the market. And when we go up against them, we don’t bat an eye.”
