Civil Mat­ters

Civil mat­ters are some of the most com­mon issues peo­ple face in their every­day lives.  They may be some­thing you encounter at home, at work, at your busi­ness, or at the gro­cery store. How­ever, despite being com­mon, these mat­ters can be very seri­ous and require a great deal of tech­ni­cal skills to nav­i­gate. They can range from fil­ing a law­suit against your neigh­bor with a few thou­sand dol­lars at stake to com­plex busi­ness trans­ac­tions involv­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars. Com­mon types of civil processes include fil­ing and defend­ing law­suits against another per­son or busi­ness, review­ing or draft­ing con­tracts among par­ties, draft­ing let­ters, enforc­ing and defend­ing against judg­ments and rep­re­sent­ing busi­nesses and indi­vid­u­als in set­tle­ment negotiations.

We at the Law Office of DeDecker & Meltzer have rep­re­sented small busi­nesses in both fil­ing law­suits and defend­ing busi­nesses in these type of law­suits. We pre­pare the case in pre-trial mat­ters and han­dle the argu­ing of legal motions and trial. We also have rep­re­sented busi­nesses in pro­vid­ing every­day advice on con­duct­ing their busi­ness. This advice helps to elim­i­nate costly and unnec­es­sary court and lit­i­ga­tion costs.
