Litigation Law

Our litigation team assists clients in an extensive range of cases arising from a wide variety of business, real estate, employment, personal injury and construction disputes. Some lawsuits cannot be avoided – others can.  SFS attorneys believe in counseling our clients on ways to prevent litigation and early intervention in attempt to resolve conflict before it escalates. When a lawsuit does arise, we litigate zealously on behalf of our client, whether it is a Fortune 500 company, a family business or an individual. Our lawyers are experienced trial lawyers. If a case cannot settle on terms fair to our client, we don’t shy away from taking the case to a jury trial, arbitration or bench trial.
