Business Litigation

Business disputes can be extremely expensive, in terms of both money and your company’s reputation. The business litigation attorneys at Barney McKenna & Olmstead tackle everything from contract disputes, employment law, insurance issues, partnership problems and corporate disputes. Our firm has represented businesses in a variety of industries, giving us the experience needed to provide a tailored approach to each client.

Construction Litigation

Construction companies, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and other parties involved in construction litigation face a variety of concerns unique to their field. A professional’s income and reputation can be affected by lawsuits claiming defective workmanship, construction defects and disputes with subcontractors, suppliers and customers.

Trust Administration and Probate Lawsuits

Issues regarding a loved one’s estate can cost the estate itself thousands of dollars while disrupting valued family relationships. Throughout the years, we have helped many individuals and families when a will or trust is disputed or contested, a personal representative fails to uphold their duties, or someone misuses the estate for their own personal financial gain. In some situations, we are able to work on a contingency basis that allows you to begin your case without paying anything out of pocket.

Appellate Law

Litigation at this level demands articulate, skilled, and experienced advocates. The appellate attorneys at Barney McKenna & Olmstead bring outstanding analytical, written, and oral advocacy skills to each and every case they accept. Our firm represents both clients that we represent at trial and those who come to us specifically for our appellate expertise.

Other Legal Areas

While these are some of our main areas of civil litigation practice, this is not an exhaustive list. Our attorneys are also experienced in litigation regarding real estate, labor & employment law, guardianships and conservatorships, adoption, bankruptcy, certain personal injury claims, and certain wrongful death claims.

Why You Need a Civil Litigation Attorney If You Are Being Sued

If you are served with a civil lawsuit, you should consult with an attorney immediately. One of the biggest mistakes many people make is assuming that they can handle a civil complaint on their own. Perhaps the claims are so preposterous they can’t possibly be true, or maybe they assume that not responding to the claim is enough to make it go away. Even an obviously baseless lawsuit can end up costing you tons of money if you fail to respond to it or take it seriously. When you are served with a lawsuit, your next step should be to call a lawyer.
