Litigation (lidəˈɡāSH(ə)n) Noun
- The legal method for resolving disputes between parties by bringing the issues before a judge, jury or arbitrator for a decision.
We advise our clients that it is usually better to avoid litigation, but if you get into a legal dispute, you need to fight to win. Most cases are resolved prior to trial, and we have found that the best way to settle a case is to be prepared to go to trial. Our litigation group has experience trying cases to juries, judges and arbitrators.
We represent both businesses and individuals as Plaintiffs and Defendants in lawsuits involving contracts, employment matters, real estate disputes, construction claims, probate cases and more.
Depending on the type of case and the issues involved a dispute may be heard in state court, federal court or in an arbitration. Our litigators have experience in these forums and are licensed in Washington and Idaho in both state and federal courts.
With a common sense approach, our firm strives to protect our clients’ interests and rights in an economically efficient manner.
