Civil Law Areas of Practice

Contract Disputes & Breach of Contract

When parties enter into a formal agreement, you expect the other side to honour it and meet their obligations. If they fail to perform their agreed upon duties, you have every right to be fairly and fully compensated. A breach of contract action revolves around reasonable interpretations of the agreement as they relate to pertinent regulations and legislation. We provide industry-leading legal expertise, advice and civil litigation to resolve contract disputes.

Family Law Litigation & Guardian Applications

Of all the areas of law, family law stands as perhaps the most deeply personal. It goes to the heart of our most intimate relationships with loved ones. Divorce actions, child custody issues, and guardian applications change the way we live and interact with others in our life. We recognize you will be living with the results long after the legal case is resolved. That’s why we make civil litigation a final measure when the other party does not negotiate reasonably.

Wrongful Dismissal

The era of employers holding absolute power over workers is very much a thing of the past. You have strong protections under the law, meaning that an employer cannot dismiss you without cause or prior notification. When large or small companies mistreat you, our civil lawyers are fully prepared to represent you in court and assert your rights.

Insurance Claims

It’s not uncommon for people to struggle to have a claim fully and promptly paid by an insurance company. Often, individuals are left underpaid by their insurance company, or worse, receive no support whatsoever. If you have suffered a loss from an automobile accident or another incident, our civil litigation lawyers are skilled in representing these unique situations, so that you acquire the support you deserve.

Estate Litigation

The administration and oversight of estates tend to be complicated, and disagreements are not uncommon. Probate disputes sometimes arise out of conflicts with an executor being unsuitable or wills being invalid. Other issues such as power of attorney and estate accounting discrepancies may require civil litigation to resolve. Our firm practices estate litigation and has the expertise to file an action on your behalf, negotiate the judicial system and get you the best possible outcome.
