Practice Areas

General Civil Litigation

Litigation is the means that our society uses to resolve disputes when reasoning and negotiation fail. While it should generally be used as a last resort, too often conflict can only be resolved through taking a matter to court. James, McElroy & Diehl recognizes our clients’ need for pragmatic solutions to the legal problems that may arise in all areas of their personal and professional lives. Our attorneys are adept at becoming experts in diverse subject matters and businesses in order to organize facts and present cases. Unlike many firms, we have a good deal of experience representing both the plaintiff and the defendant sides in a broad range of cases.

While we believe in resolving disputes through productive negotiations whenever possible – including arbitration and mediation – we are always prepared to go to the mat for our clients. James, McElroy & Diehl trial attorneys have aggressively pursued a wide range of legal disputes, from routine contract conflict to complex litigation in both Federal and State court. Our adversaries tend to expect that we will be tough and well-prepared, and this reputation sometimes benefits our clients before we ever have to demonstrate what we can do for them in court. Many members of our firm are admitted to practice at the highest appellate court levels, including the United States Supreme Court, to assist clients through trial and post trial proceedings, including appeal.
