Litigation & Risk Management
It is not uncommon for individuals or businesses to find themselves involved in a legal dispute with another party. Disputes of this nature, such as a breach of contract, typically fall under what is known as civil litigation which entails the use of courts or arbitrators for adjudication.
Defendants in a civil litigation matter will want to aggressively protect their rights in opposing the plaintiff’s claim. For plaintiffs involved in a civil litigation matter, the objective is to right a wrong or to enforce an agreement. Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant, hiring a qualified civil litigation attorney is crucial in achieving a successful outcome in your case.

Our civil litigation attorneys work closely with clients to evaluate the issues that are the subject of litigation. We represent clients before administrative agencies, alternative dispute resolution proceedings such as mediation or arbitration, jury or court trials in state and federal court as well as proceedings before appellate courts. We help clients prepare their case and counsel them on steps and procedures involved. A skilled civil litigation attorney can help clients leverage their negotiating position to reach a beneficial settlement which may be the most appropriate and economical manner of handing certain cases. However, when a dispute cannot be resolved satisfactorily, taking a case to court may be the best or only option.
When required, our civil litigation attorneys will engage and work closely with experts including investigators, accountants, economic impact analysts, accident reconstructionists, medical practitioners, and other relevant professionals.
If your legal dispute has risen to the level of civil litigation, our attorneys are ready to help.
