Too often, people and small business owners fear taking on opponents who have wronged them, thinking it will be too expensive to pay attorneys to take them to court. At Garmey Law, our civil litigation attorneys like thinking “out of the box” when it comes to fee structures, and often find great solutions (such as contingency or mixed-fees arrangements) that allow people and businesses to pursue what they’re owed.
Whether you’ve got a small business dispute, a probate contest, a fight with a bank or collection agency, a problem with a building contractor, or something else, you deserve to be heard and have your story told right. At Garmey Law, our civil litigation attorneys are comfortable taking all manner of cases through to resolution, whether it’s in settlement, at trial, or after an appeal. We pride ourselves in the ability to think creatively about civil lawsuits and hone in on their most important aspects, and in telling our client’s stories in persuasive and impactful ways.
