"...[T]here is no 'one-size-fits-all' for litigation tools. Different cases call for different approaches, and different approaches require different tools."
- Jeff Johnson
Civil Representation primarily encompasses lawsuits, disputes, a combination of the two, or several other types of matters. If you are considering suing someone, it is best not to delay. The New York Civil Practice Law & Rules has time tables, which depending upon the type of claim you are dealing with, can be time-barred. If too much time passes, it may be too late for you to bring the suit. In that respect, it is critical that you contact our firm to act as quickly as possible as it may make a huge difference with the inflexibility that comes with Civil Procedure.
Our goal is simple: to secure the best possible outcomes for our clients in a cost-efficient manner. There are times where suing the opposition may not necessarily be the best course of action. Doing so could become expensive, which is why we discuss all available options. As a law firm, we are confident in our ability to negotiate, which could potentially yield a greater result. In the alternative, when it is warranted, our firm will vigorously fight for you in court. We do not recommend going through the process alone as you should have an experienced legal team by your side at all times which will advocate your points and shield your interests. Having legal representation will show the other side you are taking the matter seriously.
On the other hand, if you are being sued, it is also imperative that you contact our office as soon as possible. If you are served with court papers, these documents demand your appearance before the Court regarding the underlying dispute. Once you are served, a specific timetable is set which is based upon where and how you were served. Failing to respond in a timely manner can result in a default judgement being entered against you which automatically grants the opposition what they were seeking. Undoing the damage of a default judgment can be a very strenuous process, and for that reason, we recommend acting before you are exposed.
At our law office we understand that being served can be very overwhelming. Our job is to help you understand the process and discuss all your options so you may properly assess the costs / benefits and guide you in making an informed decision. Whether, a dispute over real estate, a contract dispute, personal injury, or some type of negligence caused by someone else, we are able to assist. Civil cases require a unique skill set which our firm proudly puts to work for our clients on a daily basis.
We understand that people do not wish to be involved in lawsuits which is why we do our best to facilitate the process in innovative ways. Should you require assistance with matters pertaining to Litigation, Personal Injury, Contract Disputes, Eviction Proceedings, Small Claims Court, Foreclosure Proceedings, Name Change Petitions, etc. please do not hesitate to contact our firm! Consultations are always FREE and our rates remain competitive. In addition, flexible payment plans may be available on a case to case basis.
