Civil Litigation

Palm Springs Civil Litigation Firm Fights for Your Rights

Serving Coachella Valley and Riverside County individuals and businesses

Schlecht, Shevlin & Shoenberger in Palm Springs has a long history of civil litigation practice in Central and Southern California. We have extensive experience in all stages of trial and appellate practice, as well as in administrative hearings and alternative dispute resolution proceedings. Accustomed to preparing complex trial strategies and appellate arguments, our attorneys are also skilled at taking swift and aggressive preliminary action to obtain injunctions, receiverships, and attachments to preserve our clients’ rights.

Guiding litigants through personal injury lawsuits

When another person or entity injures you in some way due to negligence or another wrongful act, you may be able to recover compensation. Using our strong negotiation and litigation skills, we strive to obtain maximum recovery for personal injury victims. The claims we handle concern motor vehicle collisions, slip and fall accidents, unsafe property, defective products, harmful drugs and other areas of negligence. We investigate your case thoroughly, identifying the parties responsible and the potential bases of liability. Our attorneys work with expert witnesses who can deliver compelling testimony that helps jurors understand the cause and extent of your injuries as well as their impact on your life.

Obtaining appropriate relief to protect your interests

Our litigation attorneys are well-versed in the full range of legal remedies that can protect you or your business. One form of relief is an injunction: an order that a person or business take or stop taking a certain type of action in order to prevent irreparable injury. For example, an injunction may be issued if a company is violating your intellectual property rights or a neighbor is damaging your property.

We also represent businesses and individuals in municipal law matters, including cases involving code and ordinance enforcement, public works contract litigation and planning commission disputes.

Authoritative counsel skilled at appellate advocacy

If your civil case was decided by a judge or jury and you think the result was incorrect or unfair, you have the right to appeal to a higher court. Success on appeal requires showing there were errors in the original trial or decision. It is important to engage an attorney familiar with both trial work and the appellate system in order to present your appeal most effectively. We are experienced in reviewing trial transcripts for error and in researching legal precedents that support a reversal. We also are well-practiced at arguing cases before appellate courts, making the best arguments for the grant of a new trial or other relief.
