General Civil Litigation
The term "General Civil Litigation" encompasses a wide range of possible legal topics and issues. Civil litigation can include anything from a basic "small claims" collections case to a complex jury trial that takes several years (and a lot of resources) to fully litigate.

So, if you are looking for an attorney to handle your basic civil litigation, specialization is not a requirement. In fact, frequently an attorney who specializes in one type of civil litigation does so at the expense of courtroom experience. You do not want that. You want an attorney that you can trust, an attorney that will communicate with you at all times regarding your case, and an attorney that that is not afraid of the inside of a courtroom.

At Shoemaker Law, we provide the best possible representation for any civil matter, whether large or small. We are experienced litigators, not just attorneys who know a certain area of law. We are familiar with courts throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia and we have represented hundreds of clients in a successful resolution of their civil cases through settlement and trial.

Most importantly, we believe that personal interaction and communication with clients is a very important aspect of civil litigation. Far too often we meet civil litigants whose cases have been ongoing for months, yet they have no idea what is going on or why. Our clients know what is happening in their cases and they are aware of the reasons and rationale surrounding important litigation decisions. In making sure that happens, our clients actually play an important role in their own cases and they help make informed, legal decisions with the aid of counsel.

Frankly, this is the best of both worlds. Not only do you get excellent representation, but you will know "why" everything is happening, as opposed to simply being told "what" is happening.

So, whatever your civil matter is, contact Shoemaker Law immediately for a free intake. We will take the time to sit down with you and develop an efficient and appropriate litigation strategy with your input and understanding. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
