Scottsburg Civil Litigation and Business Dispute Lawyers – Serving Southern Indiana
Our civil litigation practice is devoted to representing individuals, businesses, and other organizations in a variety of matters, including:
- Business disputes
- Claims for breach of contract
- Claims for money owed
- Real estate disputes
- Construction disputes
Upon commencement of representation, our objectives are to learn the facts, evidence, and nature of the matter, and to ascertain the objectives of our clients. Then, together with our clients, we develop a strategic plan aimed at achieving the objectives of our clients in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Negotiation, Mediation, and Dispute Resolution
Today, more than 90% of all civil litigation cases are settled prior to trial. In many cases, even winning at trial can result in less money after legal and other expenses are considered than if a lower settlement was accepted early in a case.
This does not mean that cases should be settled quickly; in fact, through the discovery process and opportunities for negotiation, mediation, and creative problem solving, it may be possible to resolve a case creatively before significant time needs to be expended in the immediate pre-trial stages.
With decades of legal practice, we provide dedicated and tenacious representation and strategic insight in positioning client cases for an optimal outcome given the facts and circumstances of each case. We help clients at each stage of a case by providing information and counsel so that they can make informed decisions. If a trial is desired or inevitable, we are ready and prepared to present the client’s case to a judge or jury.
