Civil litigation is the process our government has provided for the resolution of disputes between individuals, corporations and other entities. It can occur at the district justice, in arbitration, in the county courthouse before a judge or jury, and in the appellate courts. Parties involved in litigation are either the Plaintiff (the person or entity bringing the lawsuit) or the Defendant (the person or entity being sued).
Attorney Taczak has represented individuals and business entities as both plaintiffs and defendants in many areas of litigation in both State and Federal Courts. He has gained the experience required to evaluate the facts, identify and analyze the legal issues, develop a strategy, and then communicate the client's position in understandable terms to the both the client and the judge or jury.
Civil litigation often involves issues relating to insurance. Is there insurance available to cover the damages? What types of insurance policies are involved? Will the insurance company provide coverage? Should multiple insurance policies apply? An experienced attorney like Attorney Taczak can identify the insurance issues in your case that could lead to a successful recovery.
Many times no insurance is available. This can expose the individual’s or corporation’s assets to a judgment. The civil litigation process does not end with the award of the judge or jury. Litigation can continue over the execution of the judgment, collection issues and preserving assets.
Often people are sued and have claims against the party suing them. Preparation of counterclaims and crossclaims against other defendants is essential. When you come to Taczak Law Office, all aspects of the lawsuit will be explored.
Litigation can be both costly and time consuming. Attorney Taczak is mindful of the costs of litigation. To that end, cases are analyzed and evaluated at an early stage and clients are made aware of the merits of their claims or defenses. In some situations, litigation is not the best or most cost effective way to resolve a dispute. Alternatives such as negotiation, mediation, and arbitration may better serve the client's interests and allow them to resolve disputes without litigation. No matter the forum, clients can expect thorough preparation and an aggressive approach.
In addition to representing clients in civil litigation, Attorney Taczak has served as an arbitrator for civil disputes. He has been appointed by the courts to hear and decide cases involving a variety of issues. This experience has proved valuable for representing his own clients’ position in lawsuits.
