Civil Litigation

Practice Area

When private parties or individuals cannot resolve their disputes, or are faced with government investigations or enforcement proceedings, civil litigation is often the means by which those disputes are resolved.  Successful and cost-effective litigation, in either federal or state courts, or before an administrative agency, requires the personal attention of an experienced litigation lawyer.
