The concept of civil litigation started in England in the late 1700’s. During that period of time there was a need to separate crimes against the state and injuries that were caused to individual families or persons.
Civil litigation encompasses a broad array of legal matters but generally is a dispute between one or more persons or parties that involves damages, injunctive relief, and/or specific performance. Civil litigation can be divided into several stages: onset with filings/pleadings, discovery, pre-trial negotiations and/or mediation, settlement, trial, and the appellate process.
Our team is experienced in all phases of the civil litigation process, whether it is the intricate and detailed discovery process, the negotiation phase, or the trial. We pride ourselves in not only achieving our client’s objective but also meeting our clients’ needs on the path to get there.
The area of law dealing with the validity of wills, administration of estates and sometimes over the affairs of minors and persons adjudged incompetent.
Interstate travel is the most common type of travel in the United States. Unfortunately, drivers of all types of vehicles share the interstate, highways and byways of our Tennessee communities with large trucks so anyone is at risk for being involved in a serious or catastrophic truck accident.
If you or someone you love has been involved in a trucking accident involving an 18 wheeler, the success of your case depends not only on the merits of your case, but also the level of understanding that you and your attorney have about the laws of the particular case. We do not charge a fee for these type cases unless a recovery is made for you.
The area of law that involves civil law cases designed to obtain compensation for injury to your person. The personal injury attorney usually tries to negotiate with the opposing party or their insurance company. If necessary, and if the attorney thinks you have a good chance of winning, the case may go to trial. The main concerns in a personal injury case are negligence and liability. Before you can collect an award, your attorney will have to prove that the defendant is liable. To prove liability, the attorney must establish negligence. If there is a failure to exercise reasonable care to prevent injury or damage then there may be negligence. Once liability and negligence have been established, the judge or the jury may award money to compensate for medical costs, lost wages and lost future earnings as well as for pain and suffering.
Our law firm has helped hundreds of families reach agreements that allow them to 'make the most of a bad situation'.
