Litigation is trial practice. While every lawyer is trained in litigation practice, not every lawyer is comfortable in actually practicing in the courtroom. My office is experienced in litigation in Municipal Courts, Common Pleas Courts, Courts of Appeals and Administrative Courts.
For the average client there are generally two types of cases, criminal and civil. Criminal cases are those prosecuted by the state for violations of the statutes. All other matters are civil. My practice has generally been a civil practice and includes a wide variety of matters for both individuals and business clients. After many years as a civil practitioner I now primarily consult on such litigation matters.
Because civil and administrative matters are usually complex, the best manner in selecting the right legal counsel is to have a consultation with a lawyer to identify the issues and then determine the proper court and strategy for a successful outcome, as well as the correct trial professional. My office is available for such consultations.
