The Lancaster, Law Offices of L. Rob Werner recognize that litigation can be very expensive. We prefer to do some evaluation of the liability issues, damages, collectability, and ultimate cost of litigation prior to commencing a law suit. We believe that a good attorney should carry both a carrot and a stick. The attorney should aggressively purse a case while at the same time look at every opportunity for an early settlement or resolution.
For relatively small matters, people should consider small claims court. In small claims court a person can sue for up to $7500. This may mean that a person will have to waive damages beyond that limit. Attorneys do not practice in small claims court. The benefit to the individual is that the matter is handled in an informal manner, there is no attorney fees and it is resolved very quickly.
We handle a wide variety of litigation in our Lancaster, California office. This includes but is not limited to cases involving breach of contract, fraud, conversion, elder abuse and breach of fiduciary duty. We may litigate over a living trust, an insurance policy, a business venture or just about any matter where there is a dispute and a reasonable opportunity to recover substantial damages or obtain an injunctive order.
