What is Litigation?
Any time a dispute is filed in a Court, this is considered to be litigation.
The dollar amounts in dispute have involved cases as low as $10,000 up to multi-million dollar cases. We have also successfully overturned judgments on appeal, and have successfully defended appeals. We do not currently offer appellate services.
Why Go to Court?
You may need immediate assistance, by means of an immediate court order, or the time is expiring to file a lawsuit, to protect your rights. More commonly, negotiations have not been productive, and you have no alternative but to file a lawsuit. No one enjoys going to Court, but we litigate regularly, and take cases to contested hearings or to trial, on a regular basis. If you need an advocate, we will vigorously represent your interests.
Why Go to Court Instead of Mediation?
We can't force anyone to mediate - it's voluntary.
You need quick action to prevent a loss of assets, obtain a temporary order, or stop the destruction of records.
The cost of mediation is higher than litigation. In some cases, the small amount of money in dispute means that it is less expensive to litigate rather than mediate.
