Tristan Orozco is an experienced civil litigator, focused on complex civil and business litigation. He has significant experience litigating a wide spectrum of issues, including commercial transactions, insurance coverage and bad faith, fraud, breach of fiduciary duties, and malpractice claims against financial professionals, in state and federal courts.
Tristan's clients have included financial institutions, insurance carriers, professionals, and corporations of all sizes. His comprehensive practice encompasses all phases of dispute resolution from pre-suit counseling and negotiation through the entire life cycle of a civil action. His goal in any dispute is to obtain the result that is best for the client in the most efficient means possible.
He has successfully obtained judgments in favor of his clients by way of dispositive motions on such issues as the statute of limitations, lack of duty, and the duty to defend/indemnify.
When he is not asserting his clients' rights pursuant to the applicable contracts, he is flexing his own, particularly in the credit card points/miles space, which has taken him to several outrageously fancy flight cabins and hotels across the globe.
