Heidi Kirlew heads the Firm’s Civil Litigation practice. Civil Litigation deals with disputes between individuals or organizations in which compensation may be awarded to the prevailing party. These disputes can involve boundary lines or easements between neighbors, contract disputes between businesses or businesses and their customers, harassment and wrongful termination claims against employers, or claims for personal injuries. Unlike criminal prosecution, a civil action is a lawsuit brought to court in order to receive damages or to recover a right.
We are experienced in a broad range of Civil Litigation and will effectively advocate for you.
The objectives of Civil Law are an attempt to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or settle a dispute. Compensation is involved when the party who is the cause of the wrong pays.
