Civil Litigation

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. Our civil litigation attorneys represent plaintiffs and defendants including individuals, partnerships, shareholders and corporations.

Our attorneys work closely with clients to evaluate their potential claims or defenses related to the commercial, professional, employment, personal disputes and more. 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 cases and counsel them on steps and procedures involved.  A skilled civil litigation attorney 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.

If a dispute cannot be resolved through negotiation, pursuing a case in the courts may be the best or only option. In these situations, our civil litigation attorneys will collaborate with experts including investigators, accountants, economic impact analysts, and other relevant professionals in order to achieve a successful outcome.
