Civil Litigation

When a person or entity fails to pay money or perform an obligation required under an agreement, that person or entity has committed a breach of contract. A contract may be oral or written, but it requires a “meeting of the minds” between the parties.

Business litigation is often based upon a breach of contract. Typical business disputes include the dissolution of a partnership or joint venture; disagreement as to what is required under a contract for goods or services; and a refusal of one party to pay for goods or services. Other business litigation includes the dissemination or misuse of trade secrets and fraudulent business practices.

When a person is physically or emotionally injured, or their personal property is damaged, the law considers this a “personal injury”. The law allows the injured party to receive compensation for personal injury caused by someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions. Personal injury law is also called “tort” law.
