It is not uncommon for individuals or businesses to find themselves involved in a legal dispute with another party. Disputes of this nature, such as a breach of contract, typically fall under what is known as civil litigation which entails the use of courts or arbitrators for adjudication.
For plaintiffs involved in a civil litigation matter, the objective is to right a wrong, compel the adherence to an agreement, or to obtain compensation for an injury or any other damages suffered. On the other hand, defendants in a civil litigation matter want to aggressively protect their rights in opposing the plaintiff’s claim.
Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant, hiring a qualified civil litigation attorney is crucial in achieving a successful outcome in your case.

Our civil litigation attorneys work closely with clients to evaluate their potential claims or defenses related to the commercial, professional, employment, or personal dispute that is the subject of litigation. We represent clients before administrative agencies, alternative dispute resolution proceedings, such as mediation or arbitration, jury or court trials in state and federal court, as well as proceedings before appellate courts. We help clients prepare their cases and counsel them on the steps and procedures involved. A skilled civil litigation attorney can help clients leverage their negotiating position to reach a beneficial settlement which may be the most appropriate and cost-effective strategy when handing certain cases. However, when a dispute cannot be resolved amicably, taking a case to court may be the best or only option.
When required, our civil litigation attorneys will engage and work closely with experts including investigators, accountants, economic impact analysts, and other relevant professionals.
If your legal dispute has risen to the level of civil litigation, the Kohan Law Group is ready and able to help.
