Civil Litigation

In the United States, there are two general areas of law: criminal and civil. A civil wrong is called a “tort” and can result in what attorneys refer to as “civil litigation”. Lawsuits arising out of a car accident, slip and fall, breach of contract or a real estate dispute are prime examples of “civil litigation”. In these types of cases the injured party can seek monetary damages or what is called specific performance.

We recognize the diverse issues that may arise for individuals and businesses, and we represent clients before state and federal courts, as well as before governmental tribunals, when these issues arise.
