Civil Litigation and Appeals - SVWPC

Civil Litigation

We forge the path most likely to provide a solution. That begins with litigation counseling and reviewing our client’s situation and goals. Reaching those goals may be effectively accomplished through skilled settlement negotiations. In some cases, alternative dispute resolution strategies such as arbitration may be valuable or even contractually required. When necessary, we will bring our trial skills to bear, arguing for a positive outcome in front of a judge and jury. In some cases, the solution may not require litigation at all. We provide litigation prevention counseling, often helping our clients to mitigate disputes before lawsuits are filed or to avoid disputes altogether. Ours is a proactive, solutions-driven approach.


We handle appeals at all levels, including in Colorado appellate courts, federal appellate courts and the U.S. Supreme Court. If needed, we are prepared to appeal any unfavorable decision that arises in civil litigation that we handle. We also accept appeals of cases initially handled by other lawyers.
