Do you need to file a lawsuit but don’t know how? It is recommended to speak with a civil litigation lawyer to help you navigate through what can be a complicated process. At our law firm our approach is to produce cost-effective, long term solutions that uphold your basic and legal rights. As a result, the final outcome often exceeds our clients’ expectations. Founding attorney, Hank Doyle, has 20 years of experience representing both Plaintiffs and Defendants in civil lawsuits of many types.
Most civil litigation matters involve commercial or contract disputes. Contract terms are often vague, especially if the contract in dispute is an insurance agreement. So, assertive and experienced legal representation is essential. Furthermore, if your business is a corporation, it might be illegal to represent yourself in court. At The Doyle Law Offices, we take the same single-minded approach to:
Because of our expertise and dedication, we normally resolve these issues out of court. This approach saves our clients money and time, while it avoids a protracted court battle that no one really wants.
Knowing what to expect in a civil dispute helps our clients make the best possible decisions. That’s especially true for startup businesses unfamiliar with the litigation process.
In many cases, the aforementioned out-of-court settlement comes from the result of a well-crafted demand letter. Our professionals know how to concisely state claims, refute possible defenses, and present evidence in just a few paragraphs.
If liability is contested, and it usually is, attorneys at the Doyle Law Offices usually file legal paperwork in court. This aggressive move puts pressure on the other side to settle, and it also protects our clients’ legal rights.
At this point, the judge usually hears procedural motions. As long as attorneys do their homework in the early stages, the other side’s motions rarely succeed. Additionally, because of our diligence, our team can normally get meritless claims thrown out of court.
The discovery phase usually comes next. The parties exchange information about their claims and defenses. Many settlements occur at this point, because both sides place all their cards on the table.
If the case remains unresolved, many Wake County judges refer the matter to mediation. A third-party mediator works with both sides to forge a settlement agreement. If the parties are not light-years apart in their positions and they both negotiate in good faith, mediation is usually successful.
Some contracts require mediation, arbitration, or another form of alternative dispute resolution. We approach these non-litigation matters with the same tenacity and assertiveness.
We handle lawsuits in NC District Court and NC Superior Court for clients in Cary, Raleigh, Apex, Morrisville, Holly Springs, and greater Wake County.
