What Is Civil Litigation?
Civil litigation refers to the process of resolving a civil dispute in a court of law. Civil matters tend to revolve around the personal and/or professional relationships between people, such as a marriage or a contract dispute between businesses. Unlike criminal matters that usually involve an individual versus the government, civil lawsuits are between individuals or businesses suing another individual or business.

These are just a few examples of the civil litigation matters we handle:
Real Estate Disputes: Real estate disputes usually lead to substantial problems. Such disputes can occur between individuals buying their dream home or businesses entering a commercial real estate lease. Examples include landlord-tenant disputes or commercial real estate disputes.
HOA Disputes: Sometimes, individuals sue associations and associations sue individuals. Homeowners association disputes can range from parking in the driveway to mismanagement of HOA funds, using the wrong paint colors, and more.
Contract Disputes: Contract disputes occur when one or both parties in an agreement or contract disagree about the terms and conditions of the contract. Also, contract disputes can occur when one party fails to fulfill its obligation according to the terms of the contract (“breach of contract”). A civil lawsuit can result from a dispute in a business contract, real estate contract, and more.
Partnership Disputes: This involves disputes or conflicts between partners in a business. Partnership disputes usually arise as a result of misaligned management philosophies, especially those regarding the company's finances, operations, growth strategy, and direction.
Collections Disputes: If you're being harassed by debt collectors or a collection agency, you are within your rights to file a dispute. Our attorneys can help you take legal steps to stop their harassment and ultimately find financial relief.
Other Civil Disputes: In addition, our civil litigation attorneys at McCarter | East PLLC can handle other civil disputes ranging from torts to civil action cases, complaints against the city, negligence, defamation, and more.
