Civil Litigation

Bellevue Civil Litigation Attorneys

Fighting for Your Best Interests in Civil Court

When disputes arise in life, whether they involve individuals, businesses, or even governmental agencies, they can lead to civil litigation. These disputes are handled as civil claims or lawsuits to be resolved in civil court. They all involve relationships between people, such as a dispute between neighbors, a dispute between a business and a customer or between two businesses.

Unlike criminal prosecution that can lead to criminal penalties, the result of civil litigation is to either award damages to the aggrieved party and/or to recover a right or enforce an action to be taken or stopped

If you believe you have suffered a civil wrong, you can seek a redress through a civil claim. At Jerimy Kirschner & Associates, PLLC, we provide aggressive representation for individuals initiating such claims as well as for those needing to be defended against them.

Our litigation team has litigated complex legal matters with disputed amounts in the millions of dollars as well as simpler matters for good people hurt by no fault of their own.

Types of Civil Litigation Cases in Washington

Civil litigation covers a broad area of subjects. They involve a variety of complaints that failed to be resolved between the parties themselves, such as through plain communication, negotiation, or mediation. Thus it is left up a judge and jury to decide the outcome.

Civil litigation can involve almost any relationship between two parties in our society. Examples of these can include but are not limited to the following:

  • Business disputes, such as in contract disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, disputes with clients, customers, patrons, vendors, suppliers, manufacturers, between partners, and more
  • Employee-employer disputes, such as those involving discrimination, sexual harassment, or other alleged breaches of employment laws
  • Landlord-tenant disputes, based on the management issues, lease issues, nonpayment of rent, and more
  • Other real estate disputes, such as disputes between parties over property lines, easements, breach of sales or purchase contracts, and more; these can involve buyers, sellers, brokers, loan agents, real estate agents, general contractors, subcontractors, and more
  • Personal injury, wherein one party alleges that the other caused them injuries and damages due to negligence or wrongdoing
  • Probate litigation where heirs, beneficiaries, or interested parties are in dispute over the settlement of a deceased person’s estate
  • Fraud litigation in which an individual, employee, business, investment professional, or other person or entity is accused of some type of fraudulent activity

These cases are commonly based on a “tort,” which means some type of wrongdoing or infringement on another’s rights. When litigated, they lead to damages which is generally monetary compensation awarded to the wronged party for their losses. The entire process is started with a complaint by the aggrieved party which is filed in court and leads to the civil lawsuit.
