Lawyers For Debt Collection and Landlord-Tenant Disputes in Brunswick and Wadsworth

Court cases generally fall into one of two categories: criminal and civil. In a criminal case, state or federal prosecutors bring criminal charges against someone who has broken the law. However, in a civil case, one private citizen brings legal action against another, asking for the payment of financial damages or for certain actions to be taken. For both plaintiffs and defendants in these cases, it is essential to secure representation from an experienced attorney. 

The skilled civil litigation attorneys at The Law Office of Whitney K.S. Miller, LLC have 21 years of combined experience, and we can provide you with dedicated representation that will help you reach a positive outcome to your case. We take a unique approach to civil law; we will not just tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear in order to understand your options and the steps you should take to achieve success.

Types of Civil Cases

A wide variety of cases may be settled through civil litigation, including:

  • Personal injury - A person may seek financial compensation for the damages they suffered if they were injured because of the negligence or actions of another party.
  • Landlord-tenant disputes - Property owners may need to take legal action to evict tenants, collect rent that is due, or pursue compensation for damaged property. Likewise, tenants may need to compel landlords to abide by the terms of a lease, make necessary repairs to the property, or address violations of privacy.
  • Debt collection and negotiation - A creditor may pursue a lawsuit against a debtor to recover money that is owed, or debtors may take legal action to address illegal debt collection practices. Our attorneys may also be able to work with creditors and debtors to negotiate partial payment of money owed.
  • Breach of contract - When one party to a contract fails to abide by the contract's terms, litigation may be required to address the harm that occurred because of the breach. We assist with contractual disputes involving shareholder agreements, partnership agreements, vendor agreements, commercial contracts, real estate purchase contracts, employment contracts, and severance agreements.
  • Probate litigation - When beneficiaries disagree over the terms of a will, or when an interested party disputes a will's validity, the matter must be settled in probate court. We provide representation in these cases, working to ensure that a deceased person's last wishes are carried out correctly.
