Carlson Lynch Logo

Founded in Pittsburgh in 2004, Carlson Lynch has earned national acclaim for complex litigation for plaintiffs. Our team’s core philosophy is to provide the same quality of representation to consumers and other individual plaintiffs as the nation’s largest defense-oriented law firms provide to their clients.

The result is a practice that is both tough and sophisticated, advising diverse clients against some of the most aggressive legal teams in the country. We want to demonstrate as much courage and tenacity as the clients we represent – and get results.

Bruce Carlson & Gary Lynch
Our Roots

Bruce Carlson and Gary Lynch were already seasoned attorneys when they merged their practices in 2004. They were also friends – Bruce and Gary had known each other since their law school orientation. Together, they founded Carlson Lynch, a firm that has since grown into a national advocate for the rights of the American people.

Both men grew up in working-class communities in Western Pennsylvania, and they had personally witnessed the highs and lows of modern capitalism. They understood the great rewards of smart business practices, and they had seen the damage wrought by corporate neglect. Carlson Lynch was conceived to provide a voice for individuals harmed by preventable issues – data breaches, unpaid wages, consumer fraud, and ADA violations.

A National Reach

Carlson Lynch, based in Pittsburgh, has offices in Chicago, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia. Our cases represent issues of national importance. We take pride in our partners’ diverse skills and backgrounds, as well as the complexity of our cases. Our ever-growing firm routinely holds leadership positions in major national litigation.
