The Law Office of Clifton L. Davidson represents individuals, business organizations and institutions as plaintiffs and defendants in business, real estate, construction and other civil litigation matters.
Typical matters include commercial litigation; corporate, shareholder and partnership disputes; construction claims ranging from foreclosure of mechanic liens to intricate and complex construction defect cases; real estate matters, including actions for specific performance, breach of contract, fraud, rescission, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, accountings and quiet title actions; insurance coverage disputes (including bad faith actions); and actions relating to the recovery of personal and real property.
These litigation matters frequently require the firm’s expertise in seeking or opposing pre-judgment relief, such as temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, writs of attachment and the appointment of receivers.
Our litigation philosophy includes realistic counseling of every client prior to the institution of and throughout the litigation process. We provide initial consultations with a view of early settlement of a case if that is practicable. If not, we will strive to deliver a superior litigation effort for you to resolve the case quickly in an effort to avoid a trial, through mediation or arbitration, or if trial is needed through trial to a favorable result to the client.
The litigation process commences with an investigation and evaluation of a your claims or defenses, and an analysis of the your rights, duties and obligations in order to effectively evaluate the case consistent with the your expectations and goals. The process proceeds with filing and/or responding to the complaint, and then conducting the discovery required to properly prepare or defend the case.
Effective counseling affords you the opportunity to make more informed decisions on whether to litigate or settle disputes; and, if litigated, how to properly prepare the case for trial, and whether to settle during the course of the proceedings in a manner most favorable to you.
Where appropriate, the firm pursues available alternate dispute resolution sources, e.g. alternatives such as the American Arbitration Association, and private arbitration and/or mediation. Frequently, even the most aggressively litigated cases can be better and more economically resolved utilizing these sources.
While the Law Office of Clifton L. Davidson, LLC believes in resolving disputes through productive negotiations rather than litigation whenever possible, we aggressively pursue its client’s case through trial and post trial proceedings (including appeal), as appropriate, in efforts to obtain the best possible result for you.
Every case will have different issues, and must be individually evaluated by an attorney. Hiring an experienced professional can be the best way to avoid losses.
