Nancy Stewart Litwak joined HSSM in 2014 as an associate in the Civil Litigation practice group. Although she has experience in a broad range of civil litigation matters, Nancy focuses primarily on construction and business litigation. Her experience includes the representation of contractors, design professionals, and homeowners in construction disputes; product manufacturers; retail and other commercial store owners and businesses; individuals who have been personally injured; and individuals and businesses undergoing contractual and business disputes. Nancy’s experience ranges from pre-litigation negotiation and compromise, to the initial stages of litigation, then through discovery and depositions to the summary judgment and trial stages.  Nancy holds licenses in both California and North Carolina.

Prior to joining HSSM, Nancy worked for Haight Brown & Bonesteel LLP, a civil defense litigation firm in Orange County, California, where she focused on design, manufacturing, and warning defects; breach of warranty claims; personal injury claims; and business and contractual disputes.

Outside of the office, Nancy enjoys cheering on Alabama football and Georgetown basketball.
