Civil Litigation

Monica S. McElyea, a Colorado civil litigation lawyer, provides legal services and representation on all matters of civil litigation for both plaintiffs and defendants. The term “civil litigation” encompasses a broad range of matters but essentially relates to any litigation where a party seeks money damages from another or a specific order from the court compelling the adverse party to take some action or to refrain from taking some action.

To file a suit, the plaintiff must have a “cause of action” or a legal basis for his her actions.

Examples of civil litigation include: personal injury cases, property damage disputes, contract disputes, partnership disputes, business litigation, medical malpractice, breaches of fiduciary duty, product liability law, real estate law, creditor rights, and consumer rights.

Monica S. McElyea handles a broad range of civil litigation and has dealt with many diverse matters during her more than twenty years of litigation experience. She has represented plaintiffs against large insurance companies in the nation. Furthermore, she has experience on both sides of the litigation process, having also handled some insurance defense
litigation, which gives her an important edge in accurately assessing the strengths of your case and weaknesses of your opponent’s case. Monica is an experienced civil litigation lawyer and is dedicated to protecting the interests of her clients in all cases. In some cases, the client’s interests will be better served through mediation or alternate dispute resolution, which can eliminate the need for complicated litigation. If mediation or alternative dispute resolution is used, the McElyea law office will pursue your interests with the same dedication as she would pursue your case through trial. Where litigation is recommended, Monica S. McElyea will aggressively pursue your interests and will be unwavering in her efforts to uncover those facts which will help advance your case. Because each and every case is different, Monica will work closely with you to develop a litigation plan or strategy which serves your individual needs.
