About Us

Demler Armstrong & Rowland was established in 1979 in Long Beach, California.  For more than 35 years, our primary focus has been the defense of general liability and catastrophic injury lawsuits, construction litigation, insurance coverage disputes, and insurance bad faith claims.  We are a litigation and trial firm with offices in both Northern and Southern California, and our lawyers are routinely called upon to try high-stakes cases in courtrooms throughout the state.  With a core group of partners who have been together for more than 20 years, we have the size and experience to take on the largest cases, but are still small enough to be able to provide the level of personal service that our clients expect.
