Civil Litigation

When you are sick, you see a doctor.  When your teeth ache, you see a dentist.  Yet, for some reason, when faced with a legal problem, many people try to handle it on their own.

If you are faced with a legal problem of any kind, do not hesitate to simply call a lawyer.  Lawyers are trained professionals with knowledge and experience that can help you solve your problem.  When you try to handle a legal dispute on your own, you risk compromising your rights and making your problem worse.

If you think you might have a legal problem, then you probably do have a legal problem.  Lawyers can handle everything from practical problem-solving to complex litigation, including settlement negotiations and courtroom advocacy.  Your lawyer can guard your rights, collect and preserve vital evidence in your case, and help you understand your options.  When you are unsure of how to proceed, your lawyer can help you consider your priorities and determine the best way to pursue your goals.  When you a hire a lawyer, you have a trusted advisor to help you get out of a difficult situation and move forward with your life.

If you have been harmed or you have lost a loved one as a result of a defective product or due to someone's carelessness or intentional wrongdoing, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages.  These may include medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and compensation for other losses you have suffered.  In injury accident cases, it is especially important to speak with a lawyer as early as possible.  Lawyers can act quickly to preserve evidence and ensure that you do not give up your rights by agreeing to a settlement too soon or failing to timely file a claim in court.
