Michigan Litigation & Trial Attorneys
Business and civil litigation proceedings can be quite complex matters to handle. Instead of attempting to handle these matters on their own, it is in the best interest of individuals and businesses to work with an attorney to handle their case. It is very important that the firm chosen is responsive to the needs and concerns of their clients, with attorneys who are easily accessible and who will take the case seriously instead of viewing it as just another one on their list.
While on the surface large firms may seem appealing due to their large number of attorneys and apparent wealth of resources, they often are not the best choice. In most cases, these firms are not able to give their clients the personalized attention necessary in order to achieve an ideal litigation outcome. Even though most of these firms use their large number of attorneys as a selling point, in the real world there it is very rare for a litigation case to require more than a couple of litigation lawyers. In fact, having more attorneys involved in a case often is counterproductive as it overcomplicates workflow and makes the overall effort more challenging.

Litigation Attorney Practice Areas
George Law specializes in several different areas of litigation. The primary areas of litigation include business litigation, estate litigation and civil litigation. While all of these are litigation practice areas, they are each unique and require a specific understanding of the law in order to effectively tackle a case. Our firm has litigation attorneys on staff who specialize in each of these areas with decades of combined experience successfully arguing these cases in court.
Business Litigation – This is by far the most contentious and complex areas of litigation, due to the often high stakes involved. Usually these matters will involve disputes between separate business entities, joint ventures, business partners and even between individuals and corporations. Usually both sides of a dispute will have the representation of business litigation attorneys.
The majority of these disputes result from misunderstandings regarding the terms of a contract, agreements or possibly even a situation where an individual or company is in breach of a contract. In addition to this, these situations can include non-compete agreement disputes, as well as claims of fraud and other business specific matters such as breach of fiduciary duty, shareholder disputes and interference with contractual relations.
Estate Litigation – Oftentimes there are disputes or legal objections surrounding the distribution of assets or inheritance from an estate after the decedent has passed away. There are a number of different objections that can be raised, such as improper management of an estate, or changes to a plan that others may deem to be improper, unfair or unclear.
Trust Litigation – This generally falls under the category of estate litigation and involves matters such as disputes between beneficiaries of a trust setup for the estate or contested wills. In addition to this, it can include other matters such as issues between the beneficiaries and the estates’ personal representatives or executors, or even accusations of wrongdoing by these executors against the estate itself.
Civil Litigation – There are a number of different things that are covered under civil litigation, however they primarily center around issues involving a family estate, trust or even issues such as disputed ownership of physical property or intellectual property rights. In addition to this, civil litigation can include things such as individuals filing suit against a business, such as instances of someone being injured on company property or by an unsafe or dangerous product.
On top of these common types of civil litigation, another type of litigation seen involves disputes related to real estate or one’s place of dwelling, such as litigation between landlords and tenants or neighbors disputing property lines or land usage rights. Lawsuits filed by homeowners associations against property owners or vice versa are also a common type of litigation specific to real estate.
