Hamilton Litigation Lawyers
personal; commercial; estates; malpractice
Lawsuits are our business - prosecuting, defending, settling, mediating or resolving them in the courtroom. Whether it’s about property, injury, an inheritance, a broken contract, a real estate deal, a commercial dispute, professional malpractice or simply the collection of a bad debt – we can help.
We have consistently proven that most disputes can be settled with effective advocacy and skillful negotiation. While we never underestimate the risks or costs of going to court, when that is the only option we will not hesitate to use our years of courtroom experience to vigorously advocate for our clients’ interests.
Our expertise in fields such as employment, personal injury, insurance, real estate, commercial and estates law, combined with our civil litigation experience, powerfully equips us to fight for all of our clients’ rights when disputes arise in these areas.
