Catoosa County and North Georgia Civil Litigation Attorney

photoLegal disputes between and among individuals and businesses make up the broad category known as "civil litigation." William B. Mills P.C. in Ringgold, Georgia, represents both plaintiffs and defendants in civil lawsuits of all varieties, including:

  • Injury claims
  • Divorce petitions
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Corporate collections
  • Property disputes
  • Evictions and recovery of unpaid lease payments
  • Defamation claims, including claims of slander and libel

To win or lose a lawsuit normally means recovering monetary damages, but may also include court orders requiring action by either side. Sometimes, our client's legal opponent in civil litigation is a branch of government. We have successfully represented parents and grandparents seeking recovery of custody of children who were placed in foster care by the state.

Bringing a lawsuit can be procedurally complex and time-sensitive. Different courts have different rules. Missing a deadline can mean losing the opportunity to seek a legal remedy through the court. For this reason, we do not recommend that individuals represent themselves pro se (without an attorney) in a civil lawsuit, whether as plaintiff or defendant.

Winning a lawsuit is not the end of the story for the winner. There is still the matter of collecting the proceeds of the court's verdict. A "win" on paper that does not translate to dollars or action is only symbolic.

William B. Mills P.C. in Ringgold, Georgia, serves clients through the next phase of a courtroom victory through aggressive enforcement of judgments as necessary. We have helped our clients collect on judgments by garnishing wages, putting liens on property and other aggressive methods of enacting the decision of the court in a successful lawsuit.

If a client of ours does not prevail in a lawsuit, we are ready to appeal if it is warranted. We also handle appeals for previous clients of other law firms.
