Boulder Civil Litigation Attorney

Business and other contractual relationships do not always go as planned. Too often, formerly pleasant relationships become contentious. At Dolan + Zimmerman LLP, our Boulder civil litigation lawyers are skilled at assisting our clients in resolving complicated relationships in an efficient and conscientious manner. Whether you are dissolving a business, negotiating the termination of a lease, or working through a difficult situation with a neighbor, we can help.

We make it a priority to listen to you and to resolve the disagreement in a way that has a minimal impact on your life, and to ensure that you are fully and completely advised of your options throughout the process.

While many of our clients do not want to proceed to litigation, many do not understand the alternatives. We will explain these alternatives, but if these are not successful or do not lead to the results our clients want, we have the experience to represent clients effectively and efficiently in any type of court proceeding.

Working With Your Priorities in Mind From Beginning To End

We are experienced in representing civil clients at every stage of proceedings, from the inception of a dispute, through all phases of litigation, including alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration, and in trial. Whichever path your case takes, we strive to obtain the outcome you desire in the most efficient manner possible.

What Is Civil Litigation?

Civil litigation is the process of resolving legal disputes between two or more parties without going to criminal court. Instead, these cases are resolved in civil court. Civil litigation can be either tortuous or contractual. Tortuous cases involve wrongful harm done to an individual, while contractual cases involve one party breaching the terms of an agreement with another party. 

The first step in any civil litigation case is usually to try and reach an agreement outside of court. This is often done through mediation or arbitration, which are both informal processes where both parties meet with a neutral third party (the mediator or arbitrator) to try and reach a resolution. If an agreement can’t be reached, then the case will likely go to trial.

We assist individuals throughout Boulder and the surrounding areas of Colorado with many types of civil litigation, including:

A personal injury specializes in helping people who have been injured, either physically or emotionally, as a result of another person’s negligence or carelessness. Personal injury lawyers handle a variety of cases, including car accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, assaults, and more. They will fight for your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

  • Landlord-tenant matters

When it comes to landlord-tenant law, Colorado offers a lot of protections for tenants. However, when problems arise, it can still be complicated and difficult to navigate the legal system on your own. That’s where hiring a lawyer comes in. From understanding your rights to building a strong case, a lawyer can help resolve tenant-landlord disputes efficiently and effectively– saving you time and stress in the long run. If you’re facing eviction or trying to get your security deposit back, it’s important to protect your rights.

  • Restraining Orders

A restraining order is a court order that prohibits one person from having contact with another person. This includes contact by phone, email, text, social media, or in person. A restraining order can also prohibit one person from coming within a certain distance of another person or from going to certain places that the other person frequents.

If you have been accused of a restraining order violation or you need help obtaining a restraining order against someone else, you may be feeling scared and alone. Fortunately, an attorney can help you. 

A lawyer can help you understand your legal options and can represent you in court if necessary. 

  • Business dissolution

Many people choose to go into business with partners. This can be a great way to pool resources, talents, and ideas to create something bigger than what either party could do on their own. However, sometimes these partnerships come to an end, and dissolving a business partnership is not always easy. 

A business lawyer can help you navigate the process of dissolving your business partnership. They can help you understand your legal options, draft any necessary documents, and represent you in court if necessary. 

  • Breach of contract

A breach of contract can occur when one party fails to live up to their end of the agreement. This could involve anything from not holding up their financial obligations to failing to perform the tasks they agreed to. If you find yourself in this situation, you’re going to want to consult with an experienced civil attorney who can help protect your interests.
