We have established a solid reputation for successful client representation in virtually all areas of civil law. Our experienced attorneys represent individual and corporate plaintiffs and defendants across a broad spectrum of civil issues. From contract, real estate and construction matters, to leasing and other disputes, we maintain a commitment to economical and expedient resolutions. Whenever possible, we seek to appropriately reach settlement but, in the event settlement is not an option, we are prepared to aggressively litigate on behalf of our clients.
Our attorneys successfully represent clients in all forums of litigation including arbitration panels, Magisterial District Justice (small claims) Court, Court of Common Pleas, both Pennsylvania and federal trial and appellate court, along with administrative agencies. We also represent clients in alternative dispute resolution proceedings, such as mediation and arbitration. In all cases, our client’s objectives are pursued effectively, efficiently and aggressively.
Our firm is mindful of the cost of litigation. We work closely with each client to match the appropriate litigation strategy with our client’s circumstances. Our priority is to achieve your objective in a manner that makes sense for your unique need. We have built a solid reputation for delivering effective and efficient litigation outcomes on behalf of our clients.
Confidentiality & Non-Compete Violations
Confidentiality and non-compete agreements are often signed without much consideration given to the real-world implications when the relationship ends. Suddenly, there are tremendous amounts of money at stake in a seemingly unresolvable situation. Litigation may be the only option, but you need an attorney who is familiar with the issues and how the law applies to help you get a fair result. At RKG, our attorneys have extensive experience in litigating issues related to confidentiality and non-compete agreements. Aggressive and dedicated, we can help you successfully resolve your legal issues quickly and in a cost-effective manner.
Construction projects typically involve complex relationships and competing obligations. When disputes arise, they can be difficult to resolve and litigation is often the only option. The construction litigation attorneys at RKG Law understand the challenges that these cases present, and more importantly, how to get them resolved. We’re experienced and aggressive construction litigators who know how to navigate the litigation process to deliver the results you need.
Contract disputes are one of the most common types of litigation cases that we handle at RKG. And while they are often business matters, they can quickly become adversarial. You need someone on your side who will protect your interests under the contract. At RKG Law, we start by reviewing the contract to assess your case and what remedies and damages you may be able to seek. We then develop a personalized litigation strategy to deliver the results you need. Whether you want the contract enforced, set aside, or are pursuing monetary damages, we are aggressive in pursuing the best possible outcome for you.
Mediation & Arbitration
Alternative dispute resolution has become an increasingly popular method for resolving disputes. Mediation and arbitration offer the possibility of resolving your issues faster and at a lower cost than if you went to court. However, you need to know which method is right for you, what the limitations are, and what outcomes you can expect. More importantly, you need someone who knows how to guide you through the process so that you can have your dispute resolved. If you are considering alternative dispute resolution, we can help you negotiate the terms you need.
Orphans' Court Litigation
Estate disputes can quickly bog down administration and can cause a great deal of frustration. We represent a broad spectrum of clients in orphans’ court claims, making sure that their rights are protected. We handle cases involving will disputes, challenges to trusts, creditor claims, guardianship issues, and fiduciary claims. These matters are often highly-sensitive and complex, requiring extensive knowledge of the law and a keen sense of strategy. Aggressive and dedicated, we protect your interests with a focus on delivering value-added results as quickly as possible.
Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
When someone’s negligence causes injury or death to another, the law requires that they be held accountable. And while personal injury cases are common, they are often much more complex than people realize. To further complicate matters, the insurance company will try to pay as little as possible on your claim for recovery, necessitating the need for an aggressive advocate who can pursue your claim while you focus on your recovery. We help individuals and families who have been affected by a life-changing injury or an unexpected death recover the compensation they need to rebuild their lives.
Real Estate Disputes
Owning real estate comes with a bundle of rights and obligations. When people fail to respect those obligations, you need to take action to protect your rights. Real estate disputes can be incredibly complex, but at RKG Law, our attorneys have extensive experience in handling a wide variety of cases. From easement disputes to purchase agreements and everything in between, we know how to resolve even the most difficult cases. We can assess your case, explain your options, and find a way forward.
