Civil Plaintiff Trial Law

Insurance companies and Civil Defense law firms have only one goal. Making the case go away. TLF also only has one goal. Winning.

The Federal Civil Trial Timeline

Civil Litigation is a long process. We try to make it as painless (for you) as possible.
Complaint Investigation
A well written complaint requires investigation and research.

Defendants are fond of the Motion to Dismiss. We make every effort to make their motion laughable.

Discovery
Surprisingly, Defendants rarely admit they did anything wrong. TLF uncovers the evidence needed to win.

We maximize the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Evidence to look under every rock. We do it as soon as possible. We litigate with the spirit of General George Smith Patton Jr.

Alternative Dispute Resolution
No one leaves mediation happy.

With TLF’s zealous prosecution of the case prior to the Early ADR required by our federal court, you will have the best chance of getting the best deal without the rigors of late-stage discovery. While this is not The Settlement Law Firm, with every move being made for the purpose of a trial, the settlement offered should be substantial. And you will know the difference between a “nuisance” offer, and a real one.

Summary Judgment
If they win the case goes away. If you win the case goes to trial.

Summary Judgment is intricate and long. It can take several months to complete. Be confident that your Summary Judgment papers have the needed facts and law to survive. Defense firms exist to win summary judgment. TLF exists for a different reason.

Trial Preparations
Trial is coming. *Winter notwithstanding

Motions in Limine (Offense and Defense). Focus Groups. Trial Runs. Witness Preparation. Argument and Examination Drafting.Predictive Analysis. Jury Research. When you walk into the courthouse on Day 0 of the trial, you know you are ready.

Trial
Couldn't be much more from the heart- Metallica

In trial, you are the only client TLF has. You are the only family TLF has. For your trial, the firm shuts down, and its all hands on deck, manning battle stations. From weddings to funerals to childbirth, the client always comes first.

Personal Injury

Personal Injury

Accidents happen. Every time they do, someone was not as careful as they should have been. When you are injured because of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, TLF goes to war. Crash on the highway? TLF. Toaster explosion? TLawF. Doctor cut the wrong nerve? TLF. We can’t make you pain go away, but we can make the guilty party pay for it.

Breach of Contract

Breach of Contract

Long gone are the handshake agreements of old. Here now are the hundred of pages of service agreements for your latest smartphone update. But in Pennsylvania you don’t need all the pomp and circumstance to have a legally binding agreement. When any agreement is breached however, TLF helps recover what is rightfully yours.

Employment Law

Employment Law

Discrimination sucks. It is also very difficult to prove. TLF enjoys the challenge and cheerfully reminds corporations exactly who makes all their money… you the employee. You have a right to a harassment free workplace, and to not have sex, gender, national origin, race, age, or disability result in workplace difficulties. TLF will enforce those rights against the mom and pop or a Fortune 500.

Civil Asset Forfeiture

Civil Asset Forfeiture

The government is allowed to steal your stuff. You needn’t be convicted or even charged with a crime. And it happens. A lot. When it does, we sue the police to have your property returned.

Civil Rights Violations

Civil Rights Violations

The government thinks it is allowed to beat you, lie about you, and for too long they have gotten away with it. While it is difficult to break through the immunity (yes, for the most part the government pre-pardoned its own bad behavior to avoid lawsuits) TLF challenges the government every day, so you don’t have to.

Protection From Abuse

Protection From Abuse

We deserve to be safe at home. For too many, home is the most dangerous place to be. When violence at home threatens you, TLF goes to court for 24/7 emergency petitions FREE OF CHARGE*
*Continued representation is at the client’s option and subject to negotiated billing rates.
