Orlando Litigation Attorneys

Representing Plaintiffs & Defendants

Former U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Felix Frankfurter called litigation “the pursuit of practical ends, not a game of chess.” Litigation is, in most cases, the last resort after parties have done everything they can in their power to work things out.

The Orlando litigation attorneys at Cynthia Conlin & Associates recognize that lawsuits can be and often are a means to an end, but one that must be conducted carefully, and not without attempts at alternative dispute resolution.

Litigation is essentially the act of suing, being sued, and filing, prosecuting, and defending lawsuits. It usually takes place in either federal or state court. The federal and state court systems are separate involve separate rules of civil procedure.  In both, however, lawsuits start with the filing of a complaint and may continue through to judgment or dismissal by way of judicial determination or trial.

We are Orlando litigation attorneys who practice in both systems: state and federal courts.  We represent both Plaintiffs and Defendants, individuals and small businesses. We take our clients through the process of the initial stages, mediation, motion filings, discovery, and, if necessary, to trial.
