Plaintiff or defendant, we’re here for you

Rhodes Law, P.A. represents individuals and businesses as plaintiffs and defendants in business, real estate, construction and other civil litigation matters. Our litigation philosophy includes realistic counseling of clients prior to the institution of and throughout the litigation process. The litigation process commences with an investigation and evaluation of a client's claims or defenses, and an analysis of our client's rights, duties and obligations in order to effectively evaluate the case consistent with our client's expectations and goals.

How civil litigation works

The process proceeds with filing and/or responding to the complaint, and then conducting the discovery required to properly prepare or defend the case. Effective legal counseling affords clients the opportunity to make more informed decisions on whether to litigate or settle disputes; and, if litigated, how to properly prepare the case for trial, and whether to settle during the course of the proceedings in a manner most favorable to the client.

We understand that going to trial can be very expensive, time-consuming and stressful for our clients and because of these and the unpredictable nature of litigation we advocate and work with our clients toward negotiated settlements of disputes wherever that option exists. Typical matters that Rhodes Law, P.A. handles include commercial litigation; corporate, shareholder and partnership disputes; construction claims ranging from foreclosure of mechanic liens to intricate and complex construction defect cases; real-estate matters; breach of contract, fraud, rescission, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, accountings and quiet title actions; and actions relating to the recovery of personal and real property.

These litigation matters frequently require seeking or opposing pre-judgment relief, such as temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, writs of attachment and the appointment of receivers
