Alternative Civil Dispute Resolution
Sometimes, civil legal issues can be resolved through alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or negotiation. If mediation or negotiation could benefit you, our attorneys have extensive experience in mediating and negotiating that can help you reach a mutually beneficial settlement agreement.
If alternative dispute resolution does not work, our attorneys excel at client advocacy in the courtroom. With years of experience, our attorneys are extremely knowledgeable about the subtleties and nuances of civil litigation. This knowledge gives us the edge as we zealously represent your interests.
Frequently Asked Questions About Civil Litigation

Q: What types of civil litigation do you do?
A: Our firm provides exceptional litigation services focusing on real property disputes, trust and estate disputes, and contract or lease disputes.
Q: What if I can't afford a lawsuit in court?
A: The court is not always the best answer to a civil dispute and, in some circumstances, it is better to avoid a costly and lengthy court battle. Instead, alternatives like mediation might be more appropriate to solve a dispute. As part of our firm's zealous advocacy for clients in court proceedings, we apply that same level of zealous advocacy of clients during the mediation process.
