Civil litigation in all Pennsylvania state and federal courts

Pennsylvania Civil Lawyers

Civil litigation lawyers attempt to right a wrong, fulfill obligations set in place by an agreement, or settle a variety of disputes. A Pennsylvania civil lawyer, also known as a litigator, advocates on the behalf of men and women who have suffered discrimination or a violation of their civil rights. A civil attorney pursues or defends a client’s civil lawsuit, often recovering money, property, or other damages. If there is a victim of a wrong, he or she receives compensation. If it is a matter of fairness, the attorney will apply the doctrine of equity. Kraemer, Manes & Associates LLC represents individuals and businesses engaged in all kinds of litigation.
