Civil Litigation Attorneys in Annapolis, MD
The Annapolis attorneys at the Law Offices of Matthew S. Evans, III have more than 20 years of combined experience litigating civil cases in the Maryland District, Circuit, Appellate, and U.S. District Courts.
Our civil litigation attorneys are prepared to confidently and effectively handle trials, hearings, arbitrations, mediations and appeals across a wide range of commercial and individual legal disputes. We focus on providing creative, cost-effective approaches to resolving civil litigation.
While we prepare every case for trial, we continue to pursue alternative methods of resolution at all stages of civil litigation, as a negotiated settlement is often more beneficial than letting a judge or jury decide the outcome of a dispute. On the other hand, if intensive litigation is the best or only solution to achieve the best result, or if the other party is unwilling to work out a fair settlement, we are ready to go to court.
When a business faces litigation, knowledgeable legal representation is vital to ensuring the company’s rights and assets are protected. Our firm is adept at handling commercial disputes, which may involve a wide range of issues, such as breach of contract, unfair business practices, financial disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, and trade secrets. We understand that litigation can negatively impact a business’s day-to-day operations, overall productivity, and goodwill, which is why we work to resolve litigation as quickly and discreetly as possible.
For clients with an adverse trial court ruling, we handle appeals, in addition to defending lower court victories on appeal. Because we have experience with appeals, we are also able to effectively monitor each case we try for potential points of appeal, ensuring issues are adequately addressed, such as procedural errors or faulty jury instructions, and clients are prepared to defend favorable rulings.
