Protecting Your Interests
Civil litigation is litigation that is not specific to real estate. Sprigg-Novak law is experienced in debt collection, defamation and contract disputes having to do with non-payment or non-performance. These suits can be critical to a business well-being particularly if this is a large revenue client that the business depends upon for its startup or ongoing practice.
Cease and Desist Actions:
A cease and desist action occurs when a person or entity does something that is considered harassing or detrimental to another parties peace of mind or financial situation. Cease and Desist actions require immediate response to the offense and starts with a well drafted letter that informs the offending party of the consequences of their actions. Should the actions continue, a law suit requesting a Temporary Restraining Order or Temporary Injunction can follow where the person is restrained by the Court’s order and if they violate, are accountable to the contempt power of a court of law.
Representation During Deposition
Depositions are a minitrial before the final trial within a law suit. Here the parties are allowed to ask a wide manner of questions against one another to determine information that could not be obtained, or needs to be clarified in the regular discovery process. Depositions are stressful. Although few objections an attorney may make to protect his client during a deposition, an experienced litigator present at the deposition makes sure that no bullying or other unscrupulous behavior will take place during the process. If you find yourself subpoenaed to be depositioned, consider hiring the experience litigators at Sprigg-Novak law to represent you during that procedure.
