You may be able to resolve the issue without going to court through a negotiated settlement in which case you will need a strong negotiator. Furthermore, you should seek the help of an attorney who is an experienced litigator if negotiations fail.

Once you hire us, you will receive a client-focused, solution-oriented approach that is big on personalized service.

Our goal is to pursue your best interests and reach a resolution that meets your goals.
Types of Civil Actions
As an individual or business, you may find yourself the subject of a civil liability claim. This essentially means that you are being held responsible for some type of wrongdoing against another party. Civil liability differs from criminal liability, which involves breaking criminal law. In a civil action, you may be sued by the plaintiff for relief in a matter that has allegedly caused the plaintiff harm. The harm is typically some type of financial harm, as in the breaking of a contract.
If harm is proven in court, you may be ordered to pay damages or be subjected to a court-ordered injunction that enforces or prohibits some action on your part. Both of these results can affect you financially as well as taint your reputation, which can be devastating for a business owner. Many defenses may be possible to fight a civil claim. They will, of course, depend on the nature of the alleged wrongdoing and the subject of the case.
We have the ability to handle various types of civil actions, including the following, and more:
- Breaches of contract
- Business disputes and litigation
- Construction-related lawsuits
- Real estate disputes and lawsuits
- Insurance claims and litigation
- Other torts (wrongful acts or infringements of rights)
- Equitable claims (asking the court to order or to stop some action)
- Landlord/tenant claims
