Suing someone or being sued can be a scary and confusing thing to endure. Our attorneys have served clients in both positions: from landlord/tenant actions, contract disputes, small property damages and evictions and other similar matters, we are experienced in assisting clients to make things right and move on with a stressful time in their lives.
What to Expect
Because there are various types of civil suits and more than one court than can handle them, an in-person initial consultation is the best place to start in order to understand the ins and outs of what your particular court proceeding might look like.
And for small matters, a simple letter might be all that it takes to move someone into doing the right thing. If not, we will be ready to move forward into litigating the matter until it’s resolved.
You must keep your mind on the objective, not on the obstacle

While going pro se (acting without a lawyer) isn’t something we typically advise, there may be situations in which you can easily handle a small matter without counsel. However, to be sure if that’s best for you, we welcome you to come and speak with an attorney first.
Depending on the type of case, we may quote you a flat fee, an hourly rate, or contingency fee.
While some cases are resolved within a month or two, more complex cases could take several months up to (in extreme cases) over a year. Because other parties and other attorneys may be involved, there’s no one answer for every case and each situation is unique.
