Aggressive Civil Litigation Representation
When a legal dispute arises, it is always in your best interest to take quick, decisive action in order to protect your rights and any potential impact it may have on your position. Contacting an attorney who handles civil litigation matters should be one of the first steps you take.
Throughout Chicago, people seek out The Payne Law Office, Chartered, law firm, because of Matthew Payne’s extensive litigation experience. We can help you with a broad range of issues and believe that keeping you informed as developments occur is the best way for you to achieve the resolution you are seeking.
Civil litigation is a large part of our practice. Although we know that most cases settle because of aggressive negotiation, we prepare every case in the event the matter does end up in court.
Our Chicago civil litigation attorney handles all types of civil litigation work, including:
- Construction litigation
- Breach of contract
- Collection cases
- Small claims
- Mechanic’s liens
- Probate cases if a will or trust is contested
We will explain and handle every stage of your case, from filing a complaint or responding to a complaint you have been served with to helping gather evidence, prep witnesses, file motions and represent you at any court appearance, including the trial. Our mission is to provide quality service to our clients by way of being responsive and maintaining a small and intimate atmosphere so that our clients understand that they and their case are the priority.
We are equipped to handle both bench and jury trials. We also handle matters that proceed to mediation and arbitration. In fact, many construction cases are now required by the Illinois Supreme Court to submit to arbitration before they can be assigned to a judicial docket.
Once a judgment is entered, we can also help you enforce a judgment by filing a collections action. Our goal is to make sure that if you win, you are made whole and that you can collect on what has been awarded to you.
