Rolling Meadows Civil Litigation Lawyer

Civil and Business Lawsuits Attorney Serving Cook County and DuPage County

Aside from personal injury cases, one of the most common reasons to file a lawsuit in civil court is to force someone to comply with the terms of a contract or for breach of contract. For example, a landlord may sue a tenant for damage done to a rental unit that exceeds the amount of their security deposit, or a homeowner may sue a contractor for poor workmanship or not finishing a job after being paid.

Another common reason for civil litigation is to stop someone from taking a certain action. For example, if there is a dispute over certain valuable heirlooms in the course of settling an estate or a divorce, one party might file a lawsuit seeking an injunction (a court order) to keep others from taking those heirlooms out of the estate. Or, as another example, you might sue a neighboring property owner over a fence or other property modification that encroaches on your property.

Whatever your dilemma or dispute may be, Hartsfield Law is here to help. We will review the details of your case and determine the best way to achieve your goal through civil litigation or some other means.

Civil and Commercial Dispute Resolution

We can help you resolve civil and commercial disputes such as:

  • Commercial conflicts, including contract, partnership, debt collection, or lien issues.
  • Defamation, libel, or slander claims, including social media and online defamation.
  • Employment issues, such as harassment, discrimination, or wrongful discharge claims.
  • Intellectual property matters, such as copyright infringement, theft of trade secrets, or data security breaches.
  • Landlord/tenant conflicts, including, for example, lease violations, property damage, evictions, failure to pay rent, or failure to maintain property in habitable condition.
  • Real estate disputes between landowners, which may involve property boundaries, easements, encroachments, fences, trespass by adjoining landowners, or breach of contract related to the sale or purchase of property.

These sorts of matters often involve people that you do not wish to anger, such as an employer, a neighbor, a business partner, a friend, or even a relative. In such cases, you may feel it would be better all around if you can both resolve the dispute and maintain amicable relations.

But when the other party is not being cooperative, and something very important is at stake, hiring a lawyer and filing a civil suit may be the best--or only--way to resolve a major dispute. With an intelligent and dedicated lawyer at your side, going to court need not be difficult. Hartsfield Law is dedicated to giving you attentive service and wise counsel from start to finish of your case.
