We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

About Civil Litigation Attorney in Madison WI:

Full Service Legal Services in Madison, WI

Civil litigation is everything from employment disputes to contract arguments to landlord-tenant disputes to mechanics liens. In Madison, our law firm provides not only the legal knowledge your legal issue requires, but a strategy specific to you. Below are examples of how our Madison civil litigation attorneys do just that.

Employment Law

In employment law, the employer-employee balance of power is delicate. Our civil litigation lawyers know employment law and fight for fairness and consistency for you. Whether we’re representing an employee where she was treated unfairly or an employer who needs legal compliance advice, our goal is always the same: the best result.

Anecdotal Story: A local Madison restaurant worker was wrongfully terminated. We helped the worker challenge the termination and got a big settlement for wages and emotional damages. That’s what legal knowledge means in employment law.

Contract and Business Disputes

Contract disputes are the most common type of civil litigation. Whether you need to enforce a contract or defend a claim, you need an experienced civil litigation lawyer at your side. We know the ins and outs of contract law and business litigation, and we will represent your interests throughout the process.

Landlord-Tenant Law

Landlords and tenants don’t always get along, and that’s when legal help is needed. From evictions to lease arguments, O'Flaherty Law will help you with that.

Mechanics Liens

In construction, mechanics liens are how you get paid for work done. Our attorneys know how to protect and enforce your lien rights, and we’ll help you file and enforce mechanics liens. Our civil litigation lawyers also have the ability to assist you with other property disputes.

The Value of a Professional

Civil litigation is scary, no matter if it's dealing with a personal injury claim, a business dispute, or anything else. Having a trial lawyer by your side can’t be overstated. Our Madison civil litigation attorneys have the legal knowledge to handle your case and the strategy to advocate in your best interests. We use courtroom technology and develop strategies to get you the best result and protect you every step of the way. If necessary, we have trial lawyers on deck to get you the best result we can in front of a judge.

Civil litigation requires more than legal knowledge; it requires a partner who knows your case and the whole legal landscape. In Madison, we’re that partner. Contact O'Flaherty Law today for a consultation and to get in touch with a civil litigation lawyer in Madison.

How to Avoid Trust Litigation

Having a Trust is a significant element of estate planning that allows you to determine who receives what from your estate and when they will receive it.  Generally, trusts allow more control and peace of mind than a will, so they are often a preferred means of estate planning. If there are any concerns or conflicts that arise around your trust, trust litigation may occur.  This process can be time-consuming, expensive, and stressful for your family and loved ones, so we will break down some of the things you can do to avoid litigation for your trust.
