Read below to learn more about how Gregorek and Associates, PLLC can help you with your litigation needs.
Litigation is the process of taking a case to court. This legal process is most common in civil lawsuits. In litigation, there is a plaintiff (one who brings the charge claim) and a defendant (one against whom the charge claim is brought).
Civil law involves torts, contract disputes, the probate of wills, trusts, property disputes, administrative law, commercial law, and any other private matters that involve private parties and organizations including government departments.
To understand civil law one must recognize that there is an attempt to right a wrong, settle a dispute, or honor an agreement. Where there is a victim, such as in a personal injury case, they may be awarded compensation, and the person who is the cause of the wrong pays. If it is an equity matter, there is often a 'pie' for division; it is allocated by a process of civil law, possibly invoking various equitable doctrines where the objective is often deterrence, and retribution.
Seattle attorneys at Gregorek and Associates handle all types of litigation cases, including the following:
At Gregorek and Associates our trial lawyers handle a wide variety of civil matters for plaintiffs and defendants. We are zealous advocates for our clients at pre-trial, mediation, arbitration and trial. We utilize the most sophisticated legal research tools available.
Personal injury litigation is perhaps one of the most emotional of all areas since the plaintiff is angry over the injury. Revenge is often the desired outcome, which often times leads to failed pre-trial settlement because the plaintiff wants to have their day in court. When a trial does arise, you want to be represented by a well-prepared, experienced trial lawyer.
Business litigation, regardless of whether it is a breach of contract claim or a shareholder suit, is almost always document-intensive. These types of cases require attorneys and accountants skilled in review and analysis of business transactions. At Gregorek and Associates we have attorneys with MBAs as well as CPAs on staff to provide our clients with well-integrated legal representation.
Our skill in estate planning matters is extremely valuable in these types of cases. Estate plan contests are often emotionally charged and involve resentment that has been bottled up for years. It requires a skillful Seattle lawyer with a deep knowledge and understanding of wills, trusts and estates to achieve a good outcome.
