Civil Litigation

Contract Law

People sign contracts everyday: service contracts, real estate deals, business-to-business transactions, etc. Not surprisingly, contract disputes occur. Someone may fail to live up to the terms of contract, causing you damage. Alternatively, someone may try to force you to do something not required by your contract. The Law Center will help you achieve the result that you anticipated when you signed your contract.

Personal Injury

If you or a family member has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, recklessness, intentional act, or failure to act, you may have a basis for a personal injury claim. The injured person may be entitled to financial compensation from the person who caused the injury or his or her insurer. This may include damages for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering against whomever caused the injury. Types of personal injuries include:

  • Automobile Accidents
  • Slip and Fall
  • Product Liability
  • Assault/Battery

Property Damage

You have the right to expect that your property will not be damaged. If your property is damaged due to someone else’s intentional act, negligence or recklessness, you may be entitled to receive damages from the person who caused the damage.

Small Claims

For disputes for less than $5,000 (or in some cases less than $10,000), small claims court provides an efficient and accessible alternative to litigation in circuit court. The Law Center is prepared to help you navigate this process and achieve a just result.

Foreclosure Defense

In Wisconsin, a lender must file a civil lawsuit to foreclose against a borrower. If a borrower does nothing when this lawsuit is filed, the borrower may lose the property. However, a borrower has rights when facing a foreclosure lawsuit. A borrower may fight the foreclosure altogether. Alternatively, we can help you to negotiate a resolution that is acceptable to both you and the lender. If you are facing a foreclosure, it is important to contact an attorney right away to make sure that your rights are respected and protected.

Appeals

If you are dissatisfied with an unfavorable ruling from a state or federal trial court, you may be entitled to appeal that decision. Alternatively, if you had a favorable outcome, that ruling may be appealed by the other party. In either case, a skilled attorney is essential to forming a successful legal argument to achieve a fair result. A fresh perspective from a new attorney can give your appeal the edge it may need. The Law Center’s skilled litigation team will zealously advocate for you at the appellate court level.

If you think that you might need an attorney to help you with one of the issues described above, contact The Law Center’s civil litigation team to set up an initial consultation. We are ready to provide you the zealous and skilled courtroom advocacy you need.
