Texas Civil Litigation Attorneys Resolve Contentious Disputes

Seasoned civil trial lawyers serve Denton, Gainesville, and Flower Mound

Texas is the second-largest state in the United States, with a current population of more than 26 million people with differing ideals, morals, behaviors, viewpoints and methods of doing things. These differences make disagreements and disputes inevitable, and when parties cannot settle their conflicts and reach mutually agreeable solutions, they may opt to take their cases to civil court. If you have a legal dispute that can’t be settled, it’s important to be represented by an experienced litigator who will protect your rights and fight on your behalf. At Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, LLP, our civil litigation attorneys have been providing sound legal guidance and representation to Texans since 1985 and are ready to protect your interests.

Proven litigators devise strategies for a variety of civil disputes

Like many other facets of law, civil litigation can be complex and difficult to navigate. It encompasses a wide spectrum of issues for which individuals, businesses or other entities seek monetary damages or other restitution. Therefore, issues pertaining to criminal law, like drug possession, domestic violence and DWI charges, are outside the jurisdiction of a civil attorney.

Our attorneys manage litigation in a variety of areas, including:

  • Family law — We manage every aspect of divorce, such as alimony, child custody, child support and property distribution, and post-divorce and non-divorce matters. We handle all family law litigation with the utmost compassion and discretion.
  • Business — Our attorneys cover a wide variety of business litigation matters, from breach of contract to partnership disputes. We are tireless advocates for our clients’ rights and business interests. However, we also understand the importance of preserving business relationships, so we conduct ourselves with professionalism at all times as we seek creative, lasting solutions.
  • Real estate — We represent developers in a range of commercial and residential real estate disputes. In condemnation matters, we help our clients challenge the government’s purpose for the taking so they can retain their property, or we strive to ensure our clients receive fair and just compensation. Our attorneys have extensive experience in oil and gas law disputes over matters such as royalties and lease terms. Clients also trust us to resolve land use conflicts that threaten their property rights.
  • Construction litigation — Our firm represents contractors, developers, landlords, material suppliers, sureties and others in disputes over construction contracts. We understand that time is money, and you need to have your dispute resolved quickly and efficiently to preserve the value of the contract. We take decisive steps to get your project back on track. Unfortunately, despite timely and reasonable action, disputes can escalate. When that happens, you can trust us to protect your rights in arbitration hearings or at trial.
  • Deceptive trade practices — We represent consumers and businesses in claims under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Consumer Protection Act (DTPA). Matters we’ve handled include false advertising, fraudulent representations, counterfeit goods and pyramid schemes. We have managed cases for monetary damages as well as injunctive relief.

People often settle lawsuits out of court at any time during a civil litigation case. When an out-of-court settlement just does not pan out, having a proficient civil litigator is an absolute must. If you are seeking guidance for a dispute between you and another party, trust our civil litigation attorneys to offer complete, sophisticated solutions for your legal issue.

Knowledgeable advisers guide clients through litigation

The civil litigation process involves multiple stages and can take quite some time to get from the preliminary proceedings to settlement. From a broad standpoint, civil litigation has seven stages:

  1. Investigation
  2. Pleadings
  3. Discovery
  4. Pre-trial
  5. Trial
  6. Settlement
  7. Appeal

The most lengthy and arduous portion of the civil litigation process is the discovery stage, when the parties collect relevant information and carry out research to heighten their position in the case. The lawyers at our law firm are known for showing persistence and a commitment to excellence when carrying out the civil litigation process. Because of our accomplished appellate law division, you can also trust us to manage post-trial matters.
