Monroe Civil Litigation Attorneys
What exactly is “civil litigation?” This refers to a legal dispute between two or more parties regarding monetary damages, liability, or some other civil relief, such as a court order to do or refrain from some action (an injunction). If you are thinking of pursuing a lawsuit or have received a summons and complaint, it’s important to have a seasoned civil litigation attorney on your side, who can inform you of the relevant laws that apply to your case and represent you in and out of the courtroom.

As effective negotiators, litigators, and advocates, you can be sure that our lawyers are equipped to help you resolve your case and respond to any new developments.

Civil Litigation in Union Country
Depositions and Written Discovery
The civil litigation process begins with one party filing a complaint. Afterward, the defendant will receive a summons explaining the plaintiff’s accusations. Then there will be many months of discovery, in which each side can investigate the case. An essential component of the discovery phase is the opportunity to submit written requests for documentation, evidence, and answers from the other party. This is known as “written discovery.” Another discovery device is deposition. Either party may request a deposition in order to obtain truthful testimony from a witness, outside the confines of the courtroom. Our lawyers are able to help their clients negotiate settlements before going to court based on the evidence they uncover through written discovery and deposition.
Common Civil Litigation Matters
Civil litigation can help solve a variety of debt collection disputes. If someone owes you a debt or a debt collector files a complaint against you to collect an outstanding debt, it’s important that you take appropriate legal action. You can dispute amounts, collection history, and the validity of the debt itself through civil litigation.
Business agreements and commercial transactions between two parties often come with the risk that the other party will not fulfill their promises. If your business is considering or facing litigation, it’s essential that you have a clear understanding of your responsibilities and accepted liabilities. We can help you conduct an early investigation of the situation, identify risks and legal responsibilities, and pursue a settlement or litigate your case in court.
Breach of Contract
Contracts are legally binding agreements made between two individuals or commercial entities. When entering into a contract, both sides exchange promises, liabilities, and some sort of value, asset, or interest. If one party violates one or more terms of a contract, such as failing to fulfill their promises, they can be sued for breach of contract.
Local Government Laws
Increasingly, individuals and organizations require representation related to civil matters concerning local government laws or involving local government entities. Whether you are dealing with a civil litigation matter involving a tort claim, zoning dispute, tax issue, ordinance rule, or some other matter, we invite you to partner with our office.
