Civil and Business Litigation

Our goal is to resolve our clients’ disputes quickly and efficiently before a lawsuit is filed. When litigation arises however, you want an advocate with the experience and skill necessary to litigate and try cases.

The Scheller Law Group has extensive experience providing a full range of litigation-related services in civil matters. These include breach of contract, tort, healthcare, real estate, condemnation, construction, product liability, class action, and general commercial litigation of all kinds on behalf of individuals, businesses, nonprofits, and governmental units.
