Civil Litigation

Individuals and businesses often find themselves involved in a legal dispute with another party. These disputes, often deemed to be a breach of contract, typically becomes matters resolved through civil litigation which entails the use of courts or arbitrators for adjudication.

For plaintiffs involved in a civil litigation matter, the objective is to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or to obtain compensation for an injury.  On the other hand, defendants in a civil litigation matter want to aggressively protect their rights in opposing the plaintiff’s claim.

Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant, hiring a qualified civil litigation attorney is crucial in achieving a successful outcome in your case. We represent plaintiffs and defendants including individuals, partnerships, shareholders and corporations in the following types of cases:

Business related litigation

We work closely with clients to evaluate their potential claims or defenses related to the commercial, professional,  and personal disputes. We represent clients before administrative agencies, alternative dispute resolution proceedings such as mediation or arbitration, jury or court trials in state courts. We help clients prepare their cases and counsel them on steps and procedures involved.  We can also help clients leverage their negotiating position to reach a beneficial settlement. A negotiated settlement is often the most expedient and cost effective way to resolve many disputes.
