If you find that you need to file a lawsuit, and don’t know how to do so or where to begin, we recommend that you speak with a civil litigation attorney. An attorney who is experienced in civil litigation can help you move through what can be a complicated process. At our Wake Forest law firm our strategy is to arrive at long-term solutions that are cost-effective and support your basic and legal rights. The resulting outcome often exceeds our clients’ expectations. Founding attorney Hank Doyle has over 25 years of experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in civil lawsuits of many types.
Types of Civil Litigation Matters We Work With
The majority of civil litigation matters involve commercial or contract disputes. Contract terms are often unclear; this is especially true when the contract in dispute is an insurance agreement. This makes it essential to have assertive and experienced legal representation. If your business is a corporation, it may be illegal to represent yourself in court.
The Doyle Law Offices, PA take the same focused approach to:
- Payment and Collection Disputes
- Contract Law & Contract Defense
- Business Litigation
- Restraining Orders and Injunctive Relief
- Construction Disputes
- Mechanics’ Lien Issues
- Property Damage
- Vehicle Property Damage
- Alternative Dispute Resolutions (ADR)
- Competency & Guardianship
- Petitions & Special Proceedings before the Clerk
Our expertise and commitment in working these cases typically results in these issues being resolved out of court. This saves our clients both time and money, and avoids an unwanted lengthy court proceeding.
What You Can Expect in a Civil Litigation
Our clients can make the best possible decisions from our thorough communication that sets expectations. For a startup business that is unfamiliar with the litigation process, this is essential.
Many times an out-of-court settlement comes as the result of a well-crafted demand letter. Our professional team knows how to precisely articulate claims, disclaim possible defenses, and present evidence in a few paragraphs.
If liability is contested, our civil litigation attorneys in Wake Forest usually file legal paperwork in court. Taking this aggressive stance protects our client’s legal rights and pressures the other side to settle.
At this point, the judge usually hears procedural motions. From our diligent preparation early on, the other side’s motions rarely succeed. Additionally, our team’s work can normally show when a claim is without merit and have it thrown out of court.
The next phase is discovery. This allows each party to exchange information regarding their claims and defenses. It’s during this phase that many settlements occur because both sides show all their information.
If the case remains unresolved, many Wake County judges move the matter to mediation. During a mediation, a third party works with both sides to carve out a settlement agreement. If the parties aren’t extremely far apart in their positions and are negotiating in good faith, mediation is usually successful.
Sometimes contracts require mediation, arbitration, or another form of alternative dispute resolution. Attorney Hank Doyle is experienced in all aspects of non-litigation matters and approaches them with the same persistence and determination.
