Civil Litigation

Civil litigation is our business. 

We handle a wide range of matters for clients besides injury and damage from accidents or medical negligence. We also litigate in numerous other areas, including trusts and estates, insurance disputes, legal malpractice, contracts, construction issues, partnership agreements, business association litigation, aviation law, employment law, debtor-creditor disputes, consumer law, and civil rights.

Even though many civil matters settle, we prepare every case like it will go to trial.  This approach brings better results for our clients. In fact, we are so confident in our approach to litigation, we will often share the risks and rewards with our client through alternative fee arrangements.  Even in cases where our clients prefer to hire us by the hour, our experience has helped us develop an efficient, practical model for litigation and negotiation.

While we diligently prepare every case, we limit discovery and depositions to those that are essential. We believe asking the right question is more important than asking every question.  We try to work cooperatively with opponents on discovery to minimize cost and time involved in litigation. But when we must go to trial, we are prepared.

Just a few of the civil cases we have handled successfully include:

  • Product defect resulting in a demyelinating disorder – $325,000 VERDICT

  • Negligent security leading to sexual assault – $500,000 VERDICT

  • Legal malpractice resulting in loss of land – INSURANCE POLICY LIMITS SETTLEMENT
