Litigation

Litigation includes what most people think of when they think of lawyers — going to court. Litigation isn’t just about presenting your case to a jury. It also includes evaluating the merits of a dispute. We will gather evidence, try to find alternative solutions, and decide whether filing a court case is the best move to make.

If you are involved in a legal dispute, contact our office as soon as possible for a consultation. We will analyze the unique facts of your case and listen to your goals to come up with possible courses of action. Often, resolution may be as simple as a letter from an attorney to show the other side you are serious. In other situations, further negotiation, mediation, or litigation may be necessary. Below are some of the types of cases we often handle. 

Real Estate Litigation

Real estate cases often involve questions of title. In many cases, real estate transfers are made without proper due diligence to determine whether a clean title is being transferred. Properties are often subject to liens, easements, or other restrictions, and ownership may be shared between multiple tenants or subject to complex future interests that may make ownership conditional on various factors. Even when sellers do not have full title, they often sell properties representing that they do either because of an honest mistake or intent to defraud.

If you have questions or reservations about a real estate transaction, the best way to solve them is by involving a real estate attorney before you sign a contract. However, even if it has been years since the closing, you still may be able to seek remedies for a bad real estate transaction. Depending on the situation, this may involve monetary compensation or the adjustment of rights related to the property. Contact our office to learn more about what rights you may have if you have questions about your title.

Business Litigation

Business disputes typically arise when important items were left out of a contract, the two parties had different understandings of key terms in a contract, or changing market conditions leaves one business unable to uphold its end of a bargain. Many of these disputes can have a significant impact on a business’s bottom line. We understand the importance of resolving these disputes in a cost-effective manner to your long-term success. Whether you are in the early stages of a dispute or feel that the filing of a lawsuit is imminent, contact our office to learn how we can help you.

General Litigation

Our office also handles a wide range of other types of cases. Whether you have suffered a loss for which you are seeking monetary compensation or are being sued, we take the same basic approach to all cases. First, we meet with you to discuss the circumstances surrounding the action and whether we can help you. If we can, we remain in constant communication to learn more about the unique facts of your case and how we can best help you to find the best resolution. Contact us for a free consultation today.
