General Civil Litigation

In a legal dispute seeking monetary damages, Dworken & Bernstein attorneys aggressively represent clients, whether they are in the position of plaintiff and defendant.

Fair and aggressive representation by skilled civil litigation attorneys.

The experienced trial attorneys on Dworken & Bernstein’s litigation team can quarterback your case when you need to pursue claims against someone or defend your case when you are sued. We will help you understand the big picture and evaluate the issues surrounding your dispute.

  • What are your chances for success?
  • How can we keep costs in check?
  • Are there alternatives to going to court?

If possible and practical we will advise you to pursue negotiation, mediation, and other alternative dispute resolution methods to try to resolve and achieve a satisfactory result to your dispute. Naturally, some cases must be taken to court. In such cases, our experienced civil litigation attorneys will strategically navigate the complex court rules and expertly present your case to the judge or jury.

Our attorneys handle all types of disputes. Examples of some of the matters we’ve successfully handled include:

  • various real estate issues including easements, natural resources, wetlands, taxation, trespass, joint ownership, and foreclosure
  • financing and banking disputes of all sorts
  • contract disputes
  • insurance claim disputes
  • construction and design defect disputes
    employee/employer relations disputes including non-competition clauses, confidentiality breaches, and customer or employee solicitation
  • mechanic’s liens
  • purchase, sale, or lease agreement disputes

Our attorneys are also adept at handling appeals of court and jury decisions to the various state and federal appellate courts. If an appeal can be taken from a court’s decision our attorneys can take your case to a higher court to review and reverse decisions of the trial court.

Dworken & Bernstein’s experienced civil litigation attorneys handle these matters every day for clients. If you are involved in a dispute or have claims to pursue do not hesitate to contact us for a complimentary initial consultation.
