What Is Litigation?

Litigation is essentially another way for saying “trial”, or “lawsuit” – it’s a way of resolving legal disputes that puts the ultimate outcome in the hands of a judge or a jury, depending on the circumstances. Mediation, negotiation, and arbitration are all other forms of resolving a dispute; litigation is the most formal, as it requires both sides to follow a legal process and present their cases in court. It is also the most contentious. The vast majority of cases settle out of court, through one of the other methods. It’s usually only when an agreement can’t be reached any other way, or if the conflict has escalated to a certain point, that litigation has to take place. 

Types Of Cases We Commonly Handle

At The Law Office of Patel & Cardenas, we are proud to have a track record of taking on complex litigation situations that other law firms turn away. We won’t back down from pursuing your best interests! You can rely on our Freehold litigation attorneys’ extensive courtroom experience to give you peace of mind; your case will be in great hands with us. While we aren’t able to accept every client or take every case, we frequently assist clients in Freehold with the following:

Probate litigation – Probate is a court process that typically occurs after someone passes away without a trust. It formally administers all of their assets and possessions to their heirs (either according to the terms of their will, if they had one, or according to New Jersey intestate laws). However, because probate happens to people who didn’t get to plan ahead, it is often an incredibly messy process. Family members may fight over who gets what, over whether the will was legitimate….creditors may make baseless claims on the money left behind…there are a number of things that can result in lawsuits. Whether you are a beneficiary or the estate executor/personal representative in charge of overseeing probate, we can stand up for your rights and for your loved one’s legacy! 

Consumer fraud litigation – There are laws in place to protect consumers from being sold products that are defective or dangerous or falsely advertised! If you have a complaint against a company because of one of their products, we can investigate your claim and seek the justice (and monetary compensation) you deserve. 

Employment-related litigation – There are also laws in place designed to protect employees from being mistreated by their employers. If you were discriminated against in any way, if you were fired because you objected to an illegal practice, or if you have another claim against your employer, we can take them to court and advocate for fairness and compensation! 

Foreclosure litigation – If your home is being foreclosed on, don’t panic. There are a number of defenses possible! Our Freehold litigation attorneys can make sure that the lenders have taken the right legal steps. If they haven’t, we can halt foreclosure in its tracks; even if they have, we may be able to explain other options you have for saving your home! 

Interpleader actions – This is a type of legal protection that can be given to third parties who find themselves in the middle of a dispute between two or more other parties over an asset that the third party holds! For example, if someone dies, and their spouse and child are fighting over who has the legal right to inherit their insurance policy, rather than dealing with both parties, the insurance company can file an interpleader action with the court and let the court handle it directly. We can help parties who want to file interpleader actions; we can also help parties who may be on the receiving end of an interpleader action understand what their best course of action is. 

Partition actions – A partition action is a type of legal dispute that divides a real estate property (that is co-owned by two parties) into two parts and sells the proceeds so that both parties can receive an equitable amount. These cases are often confusing, and we can ensure that your interests and investment are secured! 

And more.

Very pleased with the level of care and attention in dealing with this law firm. They were always quick to respond and patient with a very impatient first time home buyer! Robert Ranalli was my attorney and I would recommend for any legal needs.
