An Experienced Source For Mediation Services
Litigation can become costly and may take years to resolve. Mediation, or alternative dispute resolution, is often ordered by the court in an attempt to resolve the problem better, faster and at less cost. We offer the following mediation services:
- Registered mediators: If you require a mediator, we have the experience and desire necessary to provide effective mediation services.
- Mediation representation: If a court has ordered mediation or if a contract requires arbitration, our lawyers can effectively help protect your rights and interests.
- Family law mediation: When property division, child custody and other matters are at issue in a divorce, mediation can help you and the other party develop your own agreement rather than leaving the issues for a judge or jury to decide.
- Construction arbitration: Lengthy litigation can hold up a real estate development project for years. By using arbitration, the parties can often resolve the issues with less expense and get the project back on track.
- Business contract mediation: Many business contracts require mediation as a preliminary step before litigation can be considered. We can represent you and present your case in mediation.
Skilled Appellate Services
The trial is over, but did the jury get it right? Perhaps the result was fostered by an improper evidentiary ruling or another error committed by the trial court. If your client has found the outcome less than palatable, you may consider appealing the result.
Appellate work is not trial work. Appellate law is about research, writing and formulating persuasive arguments. If complex legal research and brief writing are not your strong suits, consider associating experienced appellate counsel to assist you in having your case reviewed.
Winning on appeal requires more than citing persuasive legal precedent. It often demands a sophisticated approach to legal writing that meshes legal authority and creative analysis to yield persuasive arguments. The experienced appellate attorneys at Coleman, Chambers & Rogers, LLP, are proficient in brief writing, adept at legal research and experienced in the rules of appellate procedure. We have obtained successful results from every appellate court in Georgia, including the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. In one recent case, we obtained a seven-figure verdict in a jury trial in favor of aggrieved property owners against a neighboring landowner for nuisance and trespass, and successfully defended the appeal that resulted in the verdict being upheld.
Whether you need to preserve a successful result or challenge a jury verdict or decision of the trial court, we have the skills, experience and legal acumen to prosecute or defend your appeal. Call or email to speak with an experienced appellate attorney and to learn more about appealing your case.
Determined Representation For Civil Litigation
Some might argue that, other than the underlying facts of a particular case, the attorneys have the most effect on the outcome of the case. That is why it is important to choose an experienced trial lawyer who understands the intricacies of civil practice that can help you prosecute or defend your civil case. Our civil trial lawyers know what it takes to prepare and present complex civil cases and have a proven track record of successful results.
We have successfully obtained a seven-figure verdict in a jury trial in favor of aggrieved property owners against the neighboring land owner for nuisance and trespass. In another case, we prosecuted a wrongful death claim on behalf of a widow after her husband was killed by a drunk driver. After years of diligent work, we obtained a favorable settlement from the four insurance companies involved.
There are many different types of general litigation. In a real estate litigation case, for example, the issue for determination by the court is often the true ownership of a parcel of disputed property, the existence or nonexistence of an easement asserted by a nearby property owner, or the location of the boundary line dividing two adjacent parcels of real estate. In estate litigation, two loved ones of a deceased person may argue over the legality of a will. Our experienced estate planning attorneys are prepared to handle any estate litigation issues you may have.
