Civil Litigation

We handle all kinds of civil litigation cases for both plaintiffs and defendants. Our attorneys appear in courts throughout Michigan, as well as in the federal courts. Litigation specialties include business disputes, real estate disputes, disputes among individuals, probate disputes, controversies involving end-of-life decision making, and health care disputes. We also handle medical staff privileges and credentialing issues, and other disputes arising in the health care arena.

It is not uncommon for individuals or businesses to find themselves involved in a legal dispute with another party. Disputes of this nature, such as a breach of contract, typically fall under what is known as civil litigation which entails the use of courts or arbitrators for adjudication.

For plaintiffs involved in a civil litigation matter, the objective is to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or to obtain compensation for an injury.  On the other hand, defendants in a civil litigation matter want aggressively to protect their rights in opposing the plaintiff’s claim.

Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant, hiring a qualified civil litigation attorney is crucial in achieving a successful outcome in your case.Our civil litigation lawyers represent plaintiffs and defendants, including individuals, partnerships, shareholders and corporations, in the following types of cases:

Business related litigation

Our civil litigation attorneys work closely with clients to evaluate their potential claims or defenses related to the commercial, professional, employment,or personal dispute that is the subject of litigation.   We represent clients before administrative agencies, alternative dispute resolution proceedings such as mediation or arbitration, jury or court (bench) trials in state and federal court as well as proceedings before appellate courts. We help clients prepare their cases and counsel them on steps and procedures involved.  A skilled civil litigation attorney can help clients leverage their negotiating position to reach a beneficial settlement which may be the most appropriate and economical manner of handing certain cases.  However, when a dispute cannot be resolved satisfactorily, taking a case to court may be the best or only option.

When required, our civil litigation attorneys will engage and work closely with experts, including investigators, accountants, economic impact analysts, and other relevant professionals. 

If your legal dispute has risen to the level of civil litigation, our attorneys are ready to help.
