Civil Litigation

Whether you are considering filing a lawsuit or have been sued, you need a professional who can guide you through the complexities of the litigation process. Litigation is far more than going to trial – you need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of your position as well as your opponents, and the legal options you have along the way. You need an attorney who will provide a candid assessment of the likely outcome of your case and provide you with cost-effective litigation representation. At HoganWillig, our Buffalo civil litigation lawyers deliver the results our clients need when they need them most. We know when settlement is your best option yet are fully prepared to aggressively protect your interests.

Buffalo Civil Litigation Lawyers Who Understand the Principles at Stake

Every civil litigation case is ultimately about seeking money damages. Whether your case involves a seven-figure claim or a comparatively more modest sum, we understand that the money involved isn’t always the ultimate objective – the principles at stake are often just as important. Your case is about righting a wrong, whether it’s honoring a contract or holding someone accountable for your injuries.

If you are being sued, your case may involve exonerating you from accusations that you have committed some wrongdoing or simply protecting your rights and reputation. The Buffalo civil litigation lawyers at HoganWillig understand that the principle of the matter is important and we factor that into our litigation strategy.

Commercial Litigation Assistance

Our team is positioned to help individuals and businesses facing litigation. Regardless of the origin of the dispute, the stakes are high when your business is on the line. We are evaluating your current legal situation and lawsuit, but also looking at how we can proactively reduce your future risk for business litigation. Litigators at our firm have represented businesses and business owners in trials, appeals and alternative dispute resolution tribunals.

About Breach of Contract

One of the most common types of cases our Buffalo litigation attorneys handle involves breach of contract claims. These cases can be very complex because the contracts that govern these claims are often very sophisticated. Even if the answer seems clear, ambiguities in the contract can work against you.

In order to prevail in your case, you need someone who can analyze the contract in its entirety and assess your rights and obligations. You also need to understand how the law will apply to your case – how the contract will be interpreted and what remedies are available – whether you should seek a rescission of the contract, pursue specific performance, or seek monetary damages. An experienced Buffalo civil litigation attorney from our firm can help you sort through the issues and understand your options.

About Tort Claims

The Buffalo civil litigation lawyers at HoganWillig also have extensive experience in handling a broad spectrum of tort claims, both intentional torts as well as those involving negligence. These include the following types of cases:

  • Fraud
  • Infliction of emotional distress
  • Conversion
  • Defamation

  • Personal injury
  • Medical malpractice

If you have suffered any type of loss, whether intentional or unintentional, we can protect your rights and help you get fair compensation.

Buffalo Civil Litigation Lawyers Handling Appeals

Sometimes you don’t get the results you need at trial – juries and judges can make mistakes, particularly when there are difficult legal issues involved. Appealing a case from the trial level requires specific knowledge of the legal process involved and an ability to develop a compelling argument supporting your position. We have extensive experience in handling appeals at all levels, even if we didn’t handle the case at the trial level.
