Civil litigation refers to lawsuits that can be undertaken by individuals or companies seeking to reclaim what is owed to them or that have some other sort of dispute with another individual or company, or the government. A civil litigation lawyer handles matters concerning Constitutional violations, consumer affairs, commercial contracts, credit reports, debts, bankruptcy, Social Security and other governmental benefits, collection of debts, enforcement of written and oral contracts, and collection of unpaid judgments. Shulman & Shabbick has specialized civil litigation lawyers representing clients in whatever legal matter involving civil lawsuits. Focused on state level actions as well as federal proceedings, we represent private or business clients all over the greater Lehigh Valley and Pennsylvania.

Our first step is to evaluate whether or not the case is lawsuit practicable. If a trial is both unnecessary and expensive, our civil litigation group develops other appropriate legal strategy. It may be through mediation, arbitration, or settlement. A settlement is ideal because it is cost effective and certain, but the ability and willingness to try the case is the most important settlement tool. We have an arsenal of civil litigation talent at Shulman & Shabbick. We have the resources and experience to litigate your matter, aggressively. Civil litigators must master a variety of procedures and skills, such as discovery processes and advocacy techniques that are used no matter what law forms the core of the dispute that is being litigated. In civil litigation, the burden of proof is usually on the plaintiff. However, there are a number of situations in which the burden may shift to the defendant. For example, when the plaintiff has made a prima facie case, the burden shifts to the defendant to refute or rebut the plaintiff's evidence. Nevertheless, it doesn’t matter what legal procedure a client’s case requires. Our talented civil litigation lawyers have the experience to work to achieve the best results for you.
