Civil Litigation

DEFENDING YOUR RIGHTS

One of the scari­est aspect of law is get­ting involved in a civil law­suit; either the party bring­ing the action (the Plain­tiff) or the party brought into the action (Defen­dant) will be sub­jected to a dif­fi­cult and often very emo­tional and costly process.

At Scafide Law Firm, we take a proac­tive approach to prac­tic­ing law, which means that we try to iden­tify prob­lems and resolve them before they rise to the level of lit­i­ga­tion.  Where appro­pri­ate, we encour­age achiev­ing set­tle­ment as early as pos­si­ble to achieve the most effi­cient out­come.  Some­times set­tle­ment can be achieved through nego­ti­a­tion, medi­a­tion or another alter­na­tive dis­pute res­o­lu­tion process.  Unfor­tu­nately, some­times there is no option but to pur­sue lit­i­ga­tion.  We are expe­ri­enced at lit­i­ga­tion, hav­ing han­dled cases at the trial and appel­late lev­els.  Attor­neys at our firm are licensed to prac­tice in State courts, as well as Fed­eral Dis­trict and Appel­late Courts.

Before under­tak­ing lit­i­ga­tion, we advise our clients on the sit­u­a­tion that they are fac­ing, and the options avail­able to them.  We remain in con­stant con­tact through­out the process so that clients have a full and com­plete under­stand­ing of each pro­ce­dural step of the process.  We work with the best experts, where appro­pri­ate, and we are con­stantly seek­ing to achieve the most effi­cient outcome.

Our clients ben­e­fit from our broad lit­i­ga­tion expe­ri­ence, rang­ing from Unlaw­ful Detain­ers to Breach of Con­tract actions involv­ing mil­lions of dol­lars.  We are tire­less advo­cates who respect our clients’ wishes, and work to achieve the most favor­able out­come pos­si­ble for the given situation.

Under­stand­ing your rights is an impor­tant part of devel­op­ing your lit­i­ga­tion strat­egy. Con­tact us and let’s dis­cuss your inten­tions, so that we can develop a path­way to achiev­ing your opti­mal objective.
