Civil Litigation

If you or your business is involved in a civil claim involving a contract, estate administration, landlord-tenant, real estate, business dealings, or similar matters, our office is here to assist you.  Please contact our office to discuss how to proceed in these matters.

If your case goes to court, depending upon the amount in controversy, it may go before the District Magistrate, a Judge of the County Court of Common Pleas, or in some cases, to Federal Court.  In addition, some matters are required to go to Arbitration.  We can properly advise you on how to proceed.

Litigation does not involve just appearing in Court.  There are many pre-Court procedural matters including filing the proper Complaint if you are the Plaintiff, or filing Preliminary Objections or an Answer if you are the Defendant.  Litigation also involves a period of Discovery.  This may entail drafting or responding to Requests for Production of Documents or Interrogatories.  The taking of a Deposition of a party, a witness, or an expert may also be necessary.  After the matter is heard and a decision has been rendered, there is always the possibility that the case will be appealed to a higher court.  Even when litigation has ended, often a client will need assistance to collect on the judgment awarded by the Court.

Suffice it to say, if you find yourself involved in civil litigation you will want to contact an experienced attorney at Walker, Connor & Spang, LLC to represent you.
