Litigation Practice Areas
Taking legal action through a lawsuit may seem like a daunting task. Indeed, the litigation process can be complex and sometimes lengthy. However, you may need to pursue litigation to resolve a dispute that cannot otherwise be settled. Depending on your type of case, there are different steps you can take when initiating or defending against a lawsuit. You may need to take your case to trial, or you may want to settle after the litigation starts. In some cases, even after a judge grants a final decision, the case may continue in an appeal.
At Broderick & Davenport, PLLC, we handle the following types of civil litigation:
- Appeals/appellate litigation;
- Administrative hearings;
- Employment disputes;
- Contract disputes;
- Fraud, misrepresentation and breach of fiduciary duty; and
- Education law.
No matter what kind of case you are dealing with, if litigation starts you will need experienced legal help. State law sets statutes of limitations on civil actions. These laws dictate how long after your injury or dispute you have to file a lawsuit. The specific limitations will depend on the type of case. Some cases have a filing deadline as short as one year. It is important to note that these statutes of limitations are strictly followed. So, if the filing deadline is missed you could forego any possible compensation. With a lawyer’s assistance, you can get qualified assistance in filing your case.
When a dispute cannot be settled between you and the other party, litigation might be unavoidable. However, after the litigation process begins, out-of-court resolution may be a possibility. While settling out of court is not possible in every case, mediation could be beneficial in yours. Mediation is a process in which both parties, and usually their attorneys, meet with a neutral third party. The neutral mediator will guide the parties through their issues, with the mutual goal of resolving the problems without a trial. One benefit to mediation is often cost effectiveness. A successful mediation could help you avoid further court costs. Your lawyer can help decide whether mediation would be beneficial.
