What Are Civil Lawsuits?

When a law is broken, the state files a case against the perpetrator and uses their resources to prosecute that person. When no law is broken, it is up to a plaintiff to assemble a case and take it to court themselves.

Civil litigation can take place for:

  • Corporate law
  • Contract violation
  • Construction disputes
  • Wrongful death
  • Catastrophic and serious injuries
  • Products liability
  • Bad faith insurance claims
  • Trademark and trade-secret disputes
  • General personal injury
  • Business disputes
  • Civil rights
  • Police brutality
  • Consumer protection

Construction Clients

Our Richardson civil litigation attorneys represent a variety of construction-related clients, including owners, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and design professionals.

We represent these clients through all phases of the construction process, including:

  • Project design
  • Contract negotiation
  • Construction and administration
  • Final close out

The team of litigation attorneys at MAS understands that for a client in the construction industry, the costs and interruption of litigation often make avoiding litigation the primary goal. Our Richardson litigation attorneys provide clients with detailed advice and counseling prior to construction and contract execution. If necessary, we move aggressively to represent our clients’ best interests, whether in the courtrooms or arbitration hearing rooms.

Protecting Consumer Rights

The State of Texas has laws to keep consumers safe from unfair and deceptive business practices. The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act provides recourse for consumers who were victims of fraud, misrepresentation, or a bad faith business practice. We have decades of litigation experience and are not afraid to aggressively represent you in court to defend your interests.

Helping Collect Debts

For those who rely on debt repayments to keep their businesses solvent, Texas can be a challenging place to conduct transactions. The laws allow for debtors to evade collections more easily than other states, making use of homestead exemptions and the lack of paycheck garnishments. MAS Law can help you find those responsible to repay you and enforce their payments. If they cannot cooperate voluntarily, we can help you take them to court and obtain a favorable outcome.

Bad Faith Insurance Litigation

At MAS Law, our bad faith insurance litigation trial attorneys handle a variety of bad faith insurance claims throughout Texas. We seek to level the playing field for our clients by making it less profitable and a far greater risk for insurance companies to unjustly breach their insurance policies in order to add to their bottom lines. Insurance companies intentionally limit their adjusters’ authority and ability to make decisions based on the actual facts, making them utilize complex and self-created procedures designed to delay, confuse, and increase the profit margin of the insurance companies.

Although not every rejected claim or dispute is the result of bad faith on the part of the insurer, the best way to make sure that the insurance company is not taking advantage of you is to come and consult with one of our bad faith litigation trial attorneys.
