Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation Practice

We represent both individual and business clients in a wide variety of civil litigation cases. Civil litigation is a term used to describe the resolution of disputes through our court system. However, our attorneys recognize that filing a lawsuit may not always be the most efficient or economical means of assisting our clients. Each case is different, as is each client. Our attorneys understand this and after meeting with their client and understanding particular issues around their case, they formulate a plan by which to best represent their clients. Should filing a lawsuit be part of that plan, our attorneys are well prepared to do just that and see it through to the end. In addition to prosecuting claims, i.e., representing a plaintiff, we also frequently act as defense counsel in civil litigation matters.
