Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation Law Firm in Virginia

Our attorneys are seasoned litigators who are well equipped to handle a wide variety of business and personal disputes. We are committed to finding the best and most cost-effective solution to each problem. The firm's lawyers have a wealth of experience with jury and non-jury trials in state and federal courts. We are equally comfortable with alternate dispute resolution, whether by mediation, arbitration, or old fashioned negotiation. Many of our cases are settled short of trial, but we believe that our reputation for skill and tenacity in the courtroom is an important asset which helps us achieve favorable settlements.

We recognize that straight hourly rate billing can present an additional problem for an individual or business faced with litigation. We are willing to consider flexible billing arrangements which are fair to both the client and the firm.

We regularly assist plaintiff and defendant clients with a wide variety of cases including:

  • contract disputes
  • business torts (civil conspiracy, interference with contract, etc.)
  • real estate
  • specific performance
  • commissions
  • non-competition agreements
  • trade secret litigation
  • employment disputes
  • resolution of title insurance claims
  • estate and fiduciary matters
  • partnership/corporate control and/or dissolution issues
  • professional negligence
  • evictions
