Motley Rice is one of the nation’s largest plaintiffs’ litigation firms. Founding members Ron Motley and Joe Rice have worked together for more than 30 years, combining strong trial and negotiating skills, compassion for client causes and legal experiences to construct and operate a national law practice. Our lawyers strive to safeguard and protect consumers through the use of the American civil justice system and the right to trial by jury. We have extensive experience in individual cases, consolidated trials, multidistrict litigation and class actions. By continuing to take cutting-edge, complex civil cases, we proudly serve those who seek justice.
After establishing our early roots in asbestos, tobacco and workers rights, today our attorneys represent clients in litigation involving anti-terrorism and human rights; aviation disasters; catastrophic injury; dangerous drugs and defective medical devices; environmental contamination; occupational disease and toxic tort; and securities and consumer fraud.
Headquartered in the Charleston, SC, area, the firm has offices in Los Angeles, CA; Hartford, CT; Washington, DC; New York, NY; Providence, RI; and Morgantown, WV. Motley Rice LLP operates the California office.
The mission of Motley Rice goes far beyond court rooms and office walls, extending into the community to meet needs on numerous levels. Through local and nationally recognized efforts, we are sharing our ideas, time and resources to build a better tomorrow. Giving back is an essential part of the Motley Rice culture. Our attorneys and staff actively participate and volunteer in community organizations and serve various non-profit, charitable and professional organizations. We are committed to giving back and making a difference.
