Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation

For more than 80 years, we have guided clients through a broad range of business and personal disputes, from pre-trial settlements through trials and appeals. Our team’s attorneys are licensed to practice in state and federal courts in Virginia and North Carolina.

Our team staffs cases with the appropriate attorney for that stage of litigation and type of litigation. We work closely with our clients to assess the strengths and weaknesses of their cases, given the facts and the law. In addition, in the process of assisting our clients to make an informed decision on how to proceed, we consider the estimated costs and duration of litigation and the disruption to our clients’ personal and business endeavors. In doing so, we develop unique strategies that meet client needs with the goal of resolving disagreements expeditiously and efficiently.

We endeavor to utilize those unique strategies to promote early resolution or dismissal; however, in the event that these strategies do not dispose of the litigation, we diligently prepare each case for trial through conclusion, always being mindful of overall costs. We work hard, advocating for our clients and protecting their interests.

Types of civil litigation can include appellate cases, commercial disputes, condemnation, construction disputes, guardianship and conservatorship proceedings, insurance coverage disputes, personal injury, product liability, real estate disputes, tax disputes, trust and estate administration disputes, and will contests.

In addition to court room proceedings, our attorneys regularly participate in mediations, arbitrations and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings. They also appear before local and state administrative and regulatory bodies, such as the Danville Building Code Board of Appeals, the Virginia Alcohol and Beverage Control Board, the Virginia Board of Medicine, the Virginia Department of Health Professions, the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation, the Virginia Employment Commission, and the Virginia State Building Code Technical Review Board.
