Civil Litigation

Slovak Baron Empey Murphy & Pinkney LLP’s civil litigation practice group offers a wide range of specialized litigation services for private sector companies, public agencies and individuals. Our litigators represent clients in an array of civil disputes, including:

  • Intellectual property
  • Personal Injury
  • Complex business and real estate
  • Trusts and estate
  • Construction defect
  • Owner, Contractor/Sub-Contractor Disputes
  • Eminent domain and condemnation 
  • Homeowners’ association and hospitality
  • Partnership Disputes
  • Tribal
  • Healthcare
  • First Amendment
  • Defamation
  • Where possible, our initial focus is on achieving a cost-effective solution to potential disputes that serves the best interests of the business without having to resort to litigation. Sometimes the best solution is achieved through pre-litigation planning or alternative dispute resolution. Frequently there is no alternative to litigation.

    We select a small team of experienced lawyers and paralegals, led by one of our seasoned partners who are responsible for managing the case. We have learned that in many cases, a single partner or a partner and an associate or paralegal managing the entire case is more efficient and cost-effective than a team of lawyers handling different aspects of the case. Our clients’ needs – not our own – dictate how we handle a case.
