When legal disputes disrupt your business or personal life, having a committed and knowledgeable lawyer to provide guidance and representation can make all the difference in the outcomes that are available to you. As a civil litigator at Philip Colt Moss, I help individuals, families and businesses in the Des Moines area and throughout Iowa to face the challenges before them and seek positive resolutions. I strategically present your case during negotiations and courtroom proceedings and strive to address any questions or concerns you have.
My experience and knowledge of applicable laws and past rulings allow me to seek favorable settlements and to have cases dropped when complaints are weak or baseless. I am capable of helping clients to overcome a wide range of legal challenges.
Common forms of civil law conflicts include those related to:
Most civil disputes settle out of court, either with the case being dropped or with both parties agreeing to terms for fair monetary compensation or other forms of legal remedy. But when settlements cannot be reached at the negotiating table, you can depend on my strong advocacy and courtroom skill to litigate your case with confidence.
I understand that filing a lawsuit or being served by another party is a daunting experience. As an experienced attorney at Philip Colt Moss, I will provide responsive support from the moment I take your case until the close of our services. I will represent your interests through every stage of your case, which may include:
Most lawsuits don’t involve all of these stages; many are settled before ever reaching the courtroom. If settling your case early on will achieve the best result, I will explain why I believe it is better to settle than pursue litigation. When finding an amicable resolution is not possible, however, I have the skill and in-depth legal knowledge to represent you with confidence and conviction in court. I am committed to representing my clients’ best interests at every turn.
