A Civil Litigator Ready To Fight For You
Legal disputes 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, the client’s legal opponent in civil litigation is a branch of government. Mr. Mills has successfully represented parents and grandparents seeking to regain custody of children who were placed in foster care by the state.
Guiding You Through Each Phase
Bringing a lawsuit can be complex and time-sensitive. Different courts have different rules. Missing a filing deadline can mean losing your case or appeal. For this reason, Mr. Mills does not recommend individuals represent themselves in a civil lawsuit, whether as plaintiff or defendant.
Winning a lawsuit is not the end of the story for the victor. There is still the matter of collecting the judgment. A “win” on paper that does not translate to dollars or action is only symbolic until you receive a check.
Collecting Judgments And Ready For Appeals
With more than a decade of legal experience, Mr. Mills serves clients through the next phase of a courtroom victory through aggressive enforcement of judgments as necessary. He has helped 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 does not prevail in a lawsuit, he is ready to appeal if it is warranted. He also oversees appeals for previous clients of other law firms.
