Civil Litgation

The Civil Litigation Attorneys at Lesemann & Associates handle the full range of civil disputes in state and federal courts and in arbitration.  Whether working on behalf of plaintiffs or defendants, our approach has been honed through experience representing clients in 24 different counties within South Carolina and in thirteen different states.

Our practice areas complement one another and have given us a unique approach to handling cases against opponents that range from the world’s largest corporation to local governments, and everything in between.  A particular focus of our civil litigation practice involves assisting clients with all forms of disputes and issues relating to real estate.

Highlights of Our Civil Litigation Practice:

  • Our attorneys intentionally avoid narrow specialization of their practices in order to have a broad, multi-disciplinary base upon which to confront and resolve legal issues
  • Our Experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants, and enforcing the rights and claims of both individuals and businesses, allows us to understand “both sides” of a legal dispute and to use that knowledge to benefit our client in a particular case
