Civil Litigation

Advocating for Your Rights

As experienced trial attorneys who have litigated well over a thousand lawsuits and having tried over 400 cases to verdict, we understand that civil litigation requires an experienced and committed response with a view toward global resolution. Whether the client is the plaintiff or defendant, when faced with the emotional and financial fallout civil litigation can create, the client needs a law firm that can take them surgically and cost-effectively through the process. That does not mean simply “winning,” but also having a clear, concise, understandable and cost-effective strategy from beginning to end. In addition to assisting clients with pending litigation, we also proactively help identify and address the actions or inactions that resulted in the litigation, so that future problems can be avoided. As a matter of Firm policy, we always attempt to find an amicable resolution to litigation if possible. However, when litigation is the only option, we zealously and tenaciously represent our clients in that process.

Thompson Stewart has significant experience litigating matters in the following areas: business and contract disputes, real estate and construction disputes, landlord tenant disputes, equipment lease disputes, employment disputes, non-competition enforcement cases, misdemeanors and civil infractions, divorce and child support enforcement actions, and other civil matters. We also provide advice, assistance and referrals to the top attorneys in the following areas: personal injury, slip and fall, automobile accidents, medical malpractice, products liability, dog bite, workers compensation and social security disability.

Before you engage an attorney or sign a retainer agreement, take advantage of our no-cost initial consultation to ensure you understand your rights and options and obtain the best available representation.

Construction Law

Thompson Stewart represents both building professionals and property owners in every aspect of construction, including contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, developers, investors, lenders, and property owners. Our clients are involved in projects that include commercial office buildings, retail developments, public works, and single- and multi-family housing. We also represent both contractors and owners in filing, defending and foreclosing construction liens and bonds.

Since construction, commercial or residential, involves real estate, everything agreed to between the parties must be in writing in order to be enforceable. Given the foregoing and the typical cost of construction, a client rarely faces greater financial risk than when entering into a building project, especially if it is their first experience with construction. When a dispute arises between a contractor and the owner, the results can be financially catastrophic to both sides. At Thompson Stewart, we utilize our 30+ years of experience in construction to avoid problems by helping clients up front truly understand what they are agreeing to, and ensuring they are protected throughout the construction process.
