The firm has had experience representing both the plaintiff and defense in a variety of business or commercial litigation matters. These causes of actions include:

  • Contract actions including breach of contract, tortious interference with existing contracts or prospective relations, and covenants not to compete
  • Deceptive Trade Practices,
  • Fraud,
  • Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress,
  • Landlord-Tenant,
  • Libel & Slander,
  • Negligence and Nuisance Issues,
  • Premises and Theft Liability,
  • Unfair and Fair Debt Collection, and
  • Warranty Actions.
  • Some litigation issues are more prevalent (e.g., breach of contract) then others (e.g., libel and slander). The most popular causes of action that I can litigate on are listed above.

    The costs of litigation are dependent on both the facts and the behavior of the parties. For instance, I always recommend drafting and sending a copy of the proposed lawsuit with the demand letter as a demonstration of the serious of the situation. Some potential defendants or counter-defendants take these documents seriously and will respond quickly because of it. However, others will dismiss it until the lawsuit is filed.

    Attorney fees may also be recoverable. However, that too depends on the facts and the cause of action being filed.

    The one thing any potential litigant must know is that if you are threatening to file a lawsuit, you must be willing to follow through. I do not represent clients who will rattle their saber but will not strike if the situation calls for it. Law firms that threaten to file suit but never do will develop a reputation as “all bark, no bite.” Hence, because of the firm standards, you can rest assure that any threats are taken seriously by opposing parties.
