CIVIL LITIGATION

Litigation is a type of war.  And, sometimes, war is necessary.

When War is Necessary

How We
Can Help

We can represent you in a variety of matters where litigation becomes necessary.  We will always keep your best interests in mind and, while advocating fiercely on your behalf and for your position, the nature and breadth of the litigation will be different for every unique case.

And, although we can help you with a variety of matters, we prefer to focus on a few things that we’re passionate about: tort litigation, specifically involving defamation (whether slander or libel); business litigation, specifically shareholder disputes and oppression remedies; commercial tenancy litigation, specifically involving a breach of the commercial lease agreement; animal law, specifically involving breeder (and other contractual) disputes and defending charges under the Dog Owner’s Liability Act; breach of contract claims, generally; and, human rights and discrimination claims, generally.

Two-thirds of all the strifes, quarrels, and lawsuits in the world arise from one simple cause - money.
