Litigation

Our lawyers can help you resolve disputes when they arise.

Litigation is the legal process, administered by state and federal courts, of enforcing ones rights or seeking remedy when one has been wronged. At Dommermuth Cobine West Gensler Philipchuck Corrigan & Bernhard, Ltd., our litigation team focuses exclusively on civil, as opposed to criminal, litigation.

Our experienced lawyers have an active practice in state and federal trial courts and in the appellate court system. We represent individuals, businesses and local governments in a broad range of civil litigation and appeal matters. Our attorneys are admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, the Illinois Supreme Court and all trial level courts in Illinois.

Our attorneys will act as zealous advocates of your interests throughout the litigation process, and constantly seek the most cost effective way to a fair resolution of the client’s problem. However, we recognize the time and expense of protracted litigation may not be in your best interests. Accordingly, we are always open to negotiating out-of-court settlements and will recommend such resolutions if doing so will achieve your objectives and are in your best interests.
