Your Civil Litigation Attorneys in Central Oregon

Civil litigation is a general term to describe a formalized dispute between opposing parties. Usually, the parties have hired lawyers to protect and advance their respective legal rights in anticipation of resolving the dispute at trial, arbitration, or some other forum, although most disputes settle before trial or even prior to initiating a lawsuit. Buchanan Schmid specializes in civil litigation.  Our attorneys are mindful of the costs that can mount when formally litigating a case and have learned through experience that, although every stone should be overturned, not all of them need to be thrown. Successful litigation results from quality work, not quantity. With that philosophy, we have successfully and cost-effectively represented small businesses and individual clients in a variety of matters in Oregon’s federal and state trial courts, and administrative forums.
