Civil Litigation

Though it is often best to avoid courts, there are times when litigation is the only practical remedy for resolving disputes. If you are faced with a possible trial, you will benefit from being represented by an attorney who has significant trial experience. Our trial attorneys are aggressive, creative and understand the legal system. We practice before both federal and state courts.

There is no substitute for experience in the courtroom. If you need to go, you’ll be well served if a Beasley & Gilkison litigator is by your side.

There is no fee for the initial consultation.

Personal Injury Litigation

Our approach is to get actively involved in each personal injury case. When you have experienced an injury, we want to understand your needs and how the injury has affected you and your loved ones. If you or a member of your family is injured and someone else is at fault, we will make sure you get the best legal help available. Personal injury and its after-effects can be traumatic. Our goal is to make the process of getting you the compensation to which you are entitled as stress-free and efficient as possible.

Personal Injury Litigation includes these areas:

  • Auto Accident
  • Wrongful Death
  • Medical Malpractice Litigation

If you or a member of your family has been injured as a result of medical malpractice, it is important to have a skilled and experienced attorney represent you.

If you are thinking of pursuing a medical malpractice claim, you should see an attorney right away. The taking of witness statements, photos of the injury, and your own recollections of the events surrounding the injury or neglect should be collected and documented as soon as possible. Memories become faulty; witnesses can be hard to locate, and the physical evidence may fade over time. Therefore, any delay can have a negative effect on the outcome of litigation.

Our medical malpractice attorneys will meet with you, review the evidence, investigate as they deem appropriate, and advise you regarding your options.

Abuse and Neglect
As the population ages, instances of elder abuse and neglect have become more common. The elderly deserve the same care and protection as the rest of the population. At Beasley & Gilkison, we are committed to serving our senior clients. Suspicions or allegations of improper care will be investigated and given our full attention.

Commercial Litigation
Our litigation attorneys offer a full range of commercial litigation services. We are experienced in federal and state court, and represent both plaintiffs and defendants.

Commercial Litigation includes the following areas:

  • Contract disputes
  • Banking
  • Creditors’ Rights
  • Employment Law
  • Education Litigation

Arbitration and Mediation
One way of resolving conflicts quickly and economically is to submit disputes to arbitration or mediation. Our litigation attorneys have ample experience resolving disputes using these methods as an alternative to courtroom litigation.
