We do our best to resolve problems before litigation — whether that’s through long negotiations designed to reach the most desirable result or through mediation, we keep our client’s best interests at hand.
However, many times avoiding conflict is not an option, and we are ready to pursue litigation as aggressively as possible.
Our civil litigation team has broad experience in both trial and appeals courts. Our trial experience is extensive, and we’ve presented cases as both plaintiffs and for the defense. We have also been successful in appeals cases.
Our firm has filed appeals with the Pennsylvania Superior Court as well as with the Commonwealth Court. We help those appealing criminal convictions as well as those seeking relief from agency regulations.
Our litigation lawyers handle contract disputes ranging from disagreements over construction contracts or agreements to purchase real estate. As Christian attorneys, we have assisted businesses wishing to avoid lawsuits or court proceedings by participating in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) forums, including mediation and arbitration. When the courts cannot be avoided, we fight to see that your interests are protected.
Over the years our civil rights practice has handled matters ranging from prison abuse and police brutality to street preacher wrongful arrests, from wrongful searches and seizures and denials of due process to religious discrimination. Our litigation attorneys have also helped victims of a crime in civil court find compensation for the terrible tragedy they endured.
All litigators are lawyers, but not all lawyers are litigators.
A litigator is a description for an attorney who prosecutes on behalf of or defends a client in a legal proceeding or in court. A litigator prepares documents and provides advice to clients before a trial or other legal proceeding.
More importantly, a litigator, having extensive experience and a good reputation in the courtroom, is a very effective negotiator. We are trusted, fearless litigators with an array of experience and great reputations within the legal field and Lancaster community.
