Any litigation not involving criminal charges may be referred to
as civil litigation, and can involve any sort of case imaginable for
individuals and commercial enterprises.
When you find yourself entangled in a controversy, an
experienced trial lawyer can review your case and explain your
legal options. Although litigation is a complicated process, there
are limited types of legal remedies available. Civil litigation is frequently undertaken to reclaim
money, property, or services owed, however, civil action may also involve obtaining money
damages, such as for personal injuries, or the objective may be a request for specific action called
an injunction or temporary restraining orders.
When you review your case with an attorney, weighing the cost benefits of litigation is a crucial
consideration. Court action does not necessarily represent the most practical solution. Litigation
not only interferes with day-to-day life and/or business operations, but also adds stress, legal
expenses and may have a negative impact on your personal or professional reputation, as well as
your business relationships.
At the law firm of Cloutier & Cassella, our clients know they can rely on an straightforward
appraisal of the issues involved in their conflict, and a prudent recommendation for the most
practical and economical method for resolution. Before going to trial, our attorneys frequently
negotiate a mutually acceptable settlement or help you resolve your legal issue though alternative
dispute resolution methods such as mediation or arbitration.
Examples of civil litigation our attorneys handle include:
* Breach of contract
* Fraudulent business practices
* Property line disputes
* Land use issues
* Damages for personal injuries
* Insurance bad faith
* Debt collection
* Breach of fiduciary duty
* Employment agreements
