The general practice of law involves both office work and trial work. Office work involves meeting with clients, counseling them, and preparing legal paperwork to solve their problems and meet their goals. Litigation involves preparing and filing suits and defending lawsuits that have been filed by others. Most lawyers prefer to avoid the stress and combative nature of litigation by focusing their practice on office work. A great majority of lawyers in York County have only occasional court room contact. Our firm is very different in this regard.
Every partner and associate has strong experience in trial and litigation matters. We handle all types of cases in state and federal court and do so on a regular basis. Therefore, when a problem evolves to the litigation stage, it is familiar territory for our firm. The lawyers in our firm have the combined experience of hundreds of cases litigated before judges and juries. It is something that we do on a daily basis and we do it well. York County firms that are twice our size do not have the litigation experience or strength of our firm. Most cases are settled between the attorneys and parties or through mediation. If, however, your best interest requires bringing issues and evidence before a judge or jury, you can be confident that we can handle this with great expertise founded upon a wealth of experience.
Among the many types of court cases we handle in addition to Family Law, Estate Litigation and Criminal Defense are the following:
- Business disputes;
- Shareholder disputes;
- Partnership disputes;
- Collection matters;
- Real estate litigation and quiet title actions;
- Defense of regulatory actions.
