Civil Law is the law involving private rights (as opposed to criminal matters). The majority of civil law cases are either contract, property, or tort law related. These cases may be filed for breach of contract, negligence, intentional torts (civil assault and battery, trespass, etc.), strict products liability, invasion of privacy, defamation (slander & libel), civil fraud, wrongful death, or personal injury, among others. Our firm has extensive experience in a variety of general civil litigation matters. We have represented clients on both sides, plaintiff and defendant, so we understand what to expect from the opposition.
While we have successfully taken litigation clients all the way through trial, we have found that litigation isn’t the best approach for every client. We can present you with alternative dispute resolution options that could be less costly and less complicated than litigation. Arbitration and mediation are just a few ways we can help you achieve a positive result with the minimum investment of time, money and aggravation.
