Representing Clients in Civil Litigation in Dallas-Fort Worth

Civil litigation does not involve criminal offenses, but rather disputes between parties seeking monetary damages or another remedy such as specific performance. This is a court order requiring the defendant to take a specific action, such as providing services agreed to under a contract, rather than a monetary award.

At the Law Office of Carey Thompson, we are highly experienced in handling all types of civil litigation, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Commercial litigation
  • Construction and real estate litigation
  • Employment disputes (e.g. noncompete agreements, discrimination, wrongful termination)
  • Insurance disputes (claim denials/bad faith)
  • Personal injury cases

These civil cases generally fall under the following categories:

Business Litigation 

We work with business owners to resolve all types of disputes, ranging from breach of contract to fraud to employment-related disputes to unfair and deceptive business practices. Because a lengthy court battle can be disruptive to a company’s operations — and its bottom line — we often recommend that clients seek negotiated settlements, but our trial-ready lawyers also know their way around the courtroom. If you are involved in a dispute with a competitor, vendor, client, or employee, you need the aggressive representation we provide.

Property Disputes

Although the residential and commercial real estate markets in Texas offer buyers and sellers attractive opportunities, disputes over complex legal issues are commonplace. If you are faced with a property dispute in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, it helps to have an experienced civil litigation attorney in your corner.

At the Law Office of Carey Thompson, our practice is dedicated to helping property owners, buyers, sellers, construction companies, contractors, realtors, and title companies resolve disputes in a cost-effective and expedient manner. When civil litigation cannot be avoided, we provide our clients with powerful courtroom representation. 

Torts (Personal Injury Claims)

Each year, thousands of Texans are injured in accidents caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional misconduct of others. In these situations, the injured party can seek damages through civil litigation. We have extensive experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of personal injury lawsuits. 

The Civil Litigation Process

While no two cases are the same, the civil litigation process generally involves the following steps:

  • Pretrial negotiation
  • Investigation
  • Pleadings
  • Discovery
  • Pretrial proceedings
  • Potential settlement
  • Trial
  • Appeal

Although many cases can and should be settled outside of court, we prepare each case for trial to give our clients an advantage during negotiations. A key component of any type of litigation is the discovery phase in which the parties engage in an exchange of information. 

Knowing that a successful case may rise or fall on the discovery process, we regularly collaborate with a network of investigators, financial professionals, and forensic experts to collect and analyze evidence. At trial, we provide convincing evidence, make compelling arguments and work to achieve the best possible outcome. In the event of an unfavorable result, we will determine if there is a legal basis for an appeal.
