Civil litigation is the term used for general lawsuits in which companies or individuals are involved. The experienced litigators at Tully Rinckey PLLC are skilled at representing clients in civil matters of all kinds. Our lawyers safeguard your interests whether you are the claimant or the defendant in the case. We deftly handle settlement negotiations, trial planning and preparation, and courtroom activities from jury selection through final judgment.

Because statutes of limitation are in effect for civil litigation, it’s almost always best to hire a litigator early in the process. Tully Rinckey litigators move cases efficiently through the court system, so you never need to worry about missing a filing deadline, passing up an opportunity for a favorable settlement, or scrambling to play catch up at the trial.

Real estate disputes may come in many forms, including:

  • Adverse possession
  • Eminent domain
  • Landlord/tenant disputes

These disputes and many others can have a financial impact on you or your business. They can also affect your reputation and place your property ownership at risk. With so much at stake, it’s essential to hire a qualified real estate attorney to handle your case.

The proven litigators at Tully Rinckey PLLC are highly skilled at resolving real estate matters. Our lawyers can negotiate a favorable settlement that ends your dispute quickly and without a lot of attention. If a settlement is out of reach, we represent you in court to the fullest extent of the law. We strive to ensure that your property, ownership rights, reputation, and financial interests are sufficiently protected.

Tully Rinckey lawyers are also knowledgeable about statutes of limitation. Assemble your legal team as early as possible to allow time for negotiating settlements and preparing your case.

Contract disputes can be especially problematic, especially when it comes to interpreting vague language or incomplete terms. If you are involved in a contract dispute where much is at risk, you should consider engaging a reliable contract attorney to handle your case. A contract attorney can unravel the dispute, sometimes resolving the issue without ever having to go to court.

Tully Rinckey PLLC’s contract lawyers are highly skilled at settlement negotiations, striving for a solution favorable to you or your business, and preserving any relationships you wish to keep. If a trial is unavoidable, our lawyers are courtroom-tested and ready to represent you. We prepare meticulously, argue aggressively, and don’t stop fighting until a decision is rendered. We protect your interests or those of your business at every step.

Time limits on when businesses and individuals can file a lawsuit against another party are commonly called “statutes of limitation.” If you are currently involved in a lawsuit, or even if you are just contemplating one, you need to be aware of any statutes of limitation that may apply to your case. Some statutes of limitation start when a violation or issue was first discovered, while others are triggered when the violation or issue first took place.

Because federal and state courts strictly adhere to statutes of limitation, you should consider hiring a litigator for your case as soon as you can so that you don’t exceed the time limit for your case. The organized attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC know which statutes of limitation apply to your legal matter, and can keep your case on schedule.

Contract disputes, breaches of contract, workmanship claims, construction delays, construction liens, bond claims, job abandonment disputes, nonpayment of services – these all fall into the broad category of construction disputes. Any of these may inevitably lead to litigation. If you are in the construction business and you become involved in a construction lawsuit, you will no doubt want to hire a proven litigator to handle your case.

Tully Rinckey PLLC’s construction litigators are trial-tested and knowledgeable in all areas of construction law. Our lawyers are routinely retained by:

Whether you are the complainant or the defendant, we can successfully represent you or your business. Our attorneys are fully skilled at negotiating favorable settlements on your behalf. If a settlement isn’t possible, we fight for you in court, safeguarding your interests and striving for a judgment that satisfies your business goals.

When a company or individual fails to perform any promise, either fully or partially, included in a written agreement, it’s commonly called a “breach of contract.” This includes failing to live up to a warranty – express or implied – or not meeting industry standards. If you have been damaged by a breach of contract, you should consider bringing in a competent attorney to help you recover those damages. On the other hand, if you or your company is being sued for breach of contract, you likely need an experienced litigator to defend your interests.

Whether you are a complainant or a defendant, Tully Rinckey PLLC’s contract litigators take advantage of broad legal resources and a wealth of experience to make your case as strong as possible. Our lawyers employ demonstrated negotiation skills to settle your case out of court. If a settlement isn’t achievable, though, we represent you energetically with a trial-tested legal team that works to get the results you want. We are especially adept at protecting you from excessive or fraudulent claims.

If you are planning to file for bankruptcy, you are likely doing so to discard debt or to create a plan to repay your debts. While the bankruptcy process may not be difficult, you can sometimes hit a snag or realize complications that need the help of outside legal counsel to unravel them. Likewise, creditors may need the assistance of a bankruptcy litigator to get back some or all of the money owed.

The experienced bankruptcy litigators at Tully Rinckey PLLC represent creditors and debtors, as well as trustees contesting the legitimacy of claims. Our lawyers understand all aspects of bankruptcy cases in Chapter 7, Chapter 11, or Chapter 13 proceedings – from initial hearings to bankruptcy plan verification and appeal. Our attorneys have represented clients in federal district and bankruptcy courts, as well as in state supreme courts. Combining a wealth of experience with thoughtful strategy, we help you overcome any obstacles you encounter in your bankruptcy proceedings, striving for the best possible financial outcome for your case.

If you are engaged in maximizing the use of your land, it can become a major challenge when property disputes get in the way. Disputes over land use can jeopardize the value of your property or even place your ownership stake at risk.

If you are involved in a land use or property dispute, you may need a capable lawyer to resolve the issue and put your project back on track.

Tully Rinckey PLLC’s land use and property litigators are adept at dealing with disputes between:

  • Landowners and government agencies

If you are a residential or commercial landlord and have incurred damages from a tenant, you may want to hire a capable real estate litigator to represent you or your business. If you are a tenant who has realized damages from a residential or commercial landlord, you may also want to hire a reliable lawyer to help you recoup those damages, either through payment or in-kind services.

The experienced litigators at Tully Rinckey PLLC are skilled at negotiating settlements with parties in landlord/tenant disputes, avoiding the time and expense of a trial. If we fail to achieve a settlement, however, we’re ready to represent you in the courtroom with proven and aggressive legal strategies.

We represent landlords and tenants in any number of disputes, including those involving:

Tully Rinckey attorneys are committed to protecting your real estate interests, your reputation, and your financial investment each step of the way.

When a product or service doesn’t live up to customer expectations, a breach of warranty is said to have occurred. There are two kinds of breach of warranty claims that sometimes require the involvement of legal counsel:

  • Warranty of fitness breach – a product performs differently from its advertised or expected capability
  • Warranty of merchantability breach – a product doesn’t work for its intended purposes, whether the warranty is express or implied

If you have suffered a breach of warranty and have experienced sufficient damages, you should consider hiring legal counsel. An experienced litigator can help you to get your money back or allow you to be compensated in some other way for your loss.

Tully Rinckey PLLC can represent your interests against companies that don’t live up to their promises. Our lawyers negotiate settlements where possible, avoiding the time and cost of a trial. But if a settlement can’t be achieved to your satisfaction, we represent you aggressively in court, fighting for you throughout the legal process.

If you sell to customers, you know you are responsible for delivering goods that work properly and services that perform as expected. When customers are injured by a product or service, or they incur other damages, they may sue you for associated expenses. Frivolous or fraudulent claims can be part of the equation as well. If your company is involved in a product or service claim, you need a capable lawyer who can defend your rights and protect your financial interests.

Tully Rinckey PLLC’s attorneys meet with you to evaluate the details of your case and determine the best path forward. If the claim against you involves damages caused by a manufacturing or design defect in a product, our lawyers make sure adequate analysis and testing is performed. If the claim relates to insufficient product or service warnings – a “failure to warn” assertion – we investigate the reasons. Our litigators know that your case may be won or lost based on the groundwork and preparation done.

Tully Rinckey lawyers negotiate settlements that bring matters to a quick close, protecting your company from unfavorable media attention. We also call early attention to claims that are excessive or deceitful, possibly getting the lawsuit dismissed. When a settlement can’t be made, our litigators are trial-tested and ready to defend your company in court. If you don’t like the initial judgment in the case, we advise you on the merits of appealing the decision and represent you in appellate courts if need be.

Our lawyers have represented clients in any number of complex cases, such as:

  • The defense of a commercial grass mower manufacturer – a worker received a serious head injury after accidentally overturning a mower
  • The defense of a golf cart manufacturer – a cart owner became a quadriplegic after the cart unexpectedly powered forward

We have fought aggressively on behalf of many products and services companies, including manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and retailers. Tully Rinckey lawyers make every effort to protect your interests from day one through the final decision.
