When legal disputes disrupt your business or personal life, having a committed, knowledgeable attorney to zealously advocate on your behalf brings comfort and peace of mind. The Law Office of Robert F. Landheer aggressively represents California businesses, families and individuals in litigation, arbitration and mediation. Drawing on our vast experience, we can help you with all types of general civil litigation in state and federal courts, including:
Although most legal disputes settle out of court, we have the skill and experience to go to trial when necessary and fight to uphold your rights.
As your advocates in a landlord-tenant dispute, medical malpractice action, employment dispute, or any other kind of civil suit, we press your interests through every stage of your case, which may include:
The discovery phase of your case will likely be the most time-consuming. At this stage, information is exchanged in the form of depositions (oral questions) and interrogatories (written questions) involving the parties to the suit and subpoenas if information is requested from a third party.
Most lawsuits don’t involve all of these stages, however: most are settled before ever reaching the courtroom. If settling your case early on will achieve the best result, we will explain why we believe it is better to settle instead of pursuing lengthy litigation. But if protracted litigation is the only solution to achieve the proper outcome, we are ready to fight on your behalf. Our professional courtroom demeanor and meticulous preparation give us an edge as an assertive, strategic advocate.
