We are litigation attorneys. We are often referred to as “Pit Bulls.” We take that as a compliment. Perhaps this title has been bestowed upon us because of our passion for seeing that our clients receive justice. We fight for you. We protect your legal rights. We are loyal. We are strong. Learn more about our team.
Our attorneys fight for victims against bullies. It is common to be asked, “What will happen if I don’t hire an attorney?” We often respond, “Then the biggest bully will likely win.” People then become upset and feel that the “justice system” is failing our country.
We sometimes feel that the system is unfair as well. However, we realize that the system of justice is designed as an “adversarial” system. This means that the judge (sometimes passively) listens to each side and then makes a decision. If one side presents facts in a biased favorable light, the other side must know how to show the judge the reasons that the “biased” viewpoint is not to be trusted. If no one contradicts the biased evidence, the judge is justified in ruling based on that evidence.
Litigators advocate in this process–putting forth the evidence to support the judge’s decision in their party’s favor. Without the litigator, the bully wins.
Here are some of the areas where our litigation attorneys can provide guidance and representation:
Civil litigation: A litigation attorney can represent individuals or businesses in civil disputes, such as breach of contract, personal injury claims, property disputes, and employment litigation.
Commercial litigation: A litigation attorney can assist with disputes between businesses, such as breach of contract, partnership disputes, and shareholder disputes.
Class action lawsuits: A litigation attorney can represent individuals in a class action lawsuit, which is a type of lawsuit where a large group of people collectively bring a claim against a defendant.
Appeals: A litigation attorney can assist with appeals of court decisions, including preparing and filing appellate briefs and arguing before appellate courts.
Mediation and arbitration: A litigation attorney can represent clients in alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and arbitration, to help them reach a settlement.
