General Civil Litigation

Civil lawsuits are filed in order that parties may have a judge adjudicate their dispute. Common examples include suits filed to collect or defend a claim for money owed, evicting a non-paying tenant, recovering damages resulting from a car accident, land title actions, and contract disputes. Our general litigation practice includes negotiating, mediating, and litigating civil issues including car accidents, wrongful death, and other personal injury matters, partitioning proceedings, landlord and tenant cases, collections, and most other matters before the court.

Civil cases involve investigating and establishing claims, estimating damages, asserting defenses, and identification of parties. Representation also encompasses trial on the merits, negotiation, and mediation with the goal of resolving the conflict in the client’s favor.
