Civil Litigation in Atlanta


Civil litigation is a very broad term that covers a wide range of cases that are filed in both state and federal courts in Atlanta.

Some of the cases included under the umbrella of civil litigation are personal injury, wrongful death, insurance, real estate, breach of contract, fraud, libel and slander, business torts, shareholder disputes, legal malpractice, and medical malpractice.

Very often, the best advice is to avoid court when possible. However, sometimes individuals and businesses have no choice but to have their disputes resolved in court by a judge and jury. The U.S. and Georgia Constitutions give individuals and businesses the right to petition courts for resolution of legal disputes. This right is fundamental under our system of justice, and it is vitally important in defining, protecting and enforcing property rights.
