Frank Hostetler has been a civil litigator for over 30 years. While experienced in representing corporate defendants in a wide variety of litigated issues, he has specialized in defending the motor vehicle industry in product liability, consumer law and chemical exposure litigation.

With a background and industry experience in mechanical engineering, he enjoys the challenge of learning the technical issues involved in product design, manufacturing and field performance. He has tried cases throughout California and Nevada involving handling/stability, body structure performance, seat design, seat belts and inflatable restraints. Clients include motor vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, component manufacturers and industrial equipment manufacturers.

He knows how to win cases at trial but understands the clients’ needs of maintaining their core business and protecting corporate resources from the drain litigation can present. He uses a “result oriented” approach to provide cost-effective representation from claim evaluation and resolution through trial.
