Westland Civil Litigation Lawyers
Civil litigation involves almost every type of legal issue an individual or a business might encounter outside of criminal law. The experienced legal team at Clos, Russell & Wirth, P.C., works with a wide variety of clients throughout southeast Michigan, representing plaintiffs and defendants in a range of civil matters.
Our Westland civil litigation attorneys investigate, research, prepare and deliver for our clients in Michigan district and circuit courts, each of which handles separate issues. District courts handle claims up to $25,000 in damages, and circuit courts handle all other claims. The civil processes, over which these courts preside in disputes and lawsuits, are summarized in this article, but the complexities involved in any form of litigation should be represented by diligent and effective legal counsel.
Our services are cost-effective and personalized to each client’s specific needs, and we are prepared to commit to your best interests with responsiveness and proactive legal representation. Litigation may not be your best option in resolving a dispute. We will however, help you make that determination based on the circumstances of your case and your goals. Our law firm also offers arbitration and mediation services to parties who are willing to resolve disputes without court action.
Discussing your legal dispute with a lawyer who can advise you on court procedure and the law is imperative. We have represented clients and handled cases that are ultimately resolved through settlement, jury (or judge) verdict and mediation on a variety of legal matters, including:
- Commercial lease disputes
- Breach of contract disputes
- Probate court issues
- Breach of fiduciary duties
- Business and corporate disputes
- Construction disputes
- Employment disputes
- Real estate disputes
- Several other issues
Claims May Go Beyond Financial Compensation
Not every lawsuit involves someone seeking money. For example, in an employment dispute, an employee may want to keep his or her job. A former business owner may want a seat on the board of directors of the company purchasing his or her business. A party may want an injunction against another person or entity to prevent or stop certain action. A party to a contract may wish to void the contract. Our experienced and practical attorneys are dedicated to the best resolution possible for each client we represent. If you have a civil claim, have been served with a Summons and Complaint, we can help.
