Civil Litigation Lawyer in Santa Clarita
Our civil litigation attorneys recognize that litigation can be very expensive.
Prior to commencing litigation, our firm will perform an evaluation of
the liability issues, damages, collectability, and potential ultimate
cost of litigation and advise our clients of what we believe to be the
best course of action.
We believe that a good attorney should carry both a carrot and a stick.
The attorney should aggressively pursue a case while at the same time
look at every opportunity for an early settlement or resolution.
For relatively small matters, people should consider small claims court.
In small claims court, a person can sue for up to $10,000. This may mean
that a person will have to waive damages beyond that limit. Attorneys
do not practice in small claims court. The benefit to the individual is
that the matter is handled in an informal manner, there are no attorney
fees and it is resolved very quickly.
Our firm has been practicing for over 38 years and we have vast amounts
of experience in civil litigation. This includes, but is not limited to,
cases involving breach of contract, fraud, evictions, landlord/tenant,
conversion, real estate matters, elder abuse (financial and otherwise),
and breach of fiduciary duty. We may litigate over a living trust, an
insurance policy, a business venture or just about any matter where there
is a dispute and a reasonable opportunity to recover substantial damages
or obtain an injunctive order.
