Our experienced civil litigation attorneys at Handelin Law also understand that pursuing litigation is a significant decision. Time, money, and effort will be spent seeking an equitable outcome through litigation. Often times, there is a substantial amount of time trying to resolve the dispute prior to litigation as well. It is not unusual for emotion and principal to cloud a litigant’s judgment at various times throughout the litigation process.

There are a number of issues that can arise during the litigation process, whether it be a procedural issue, issue of case law, or during the discovery process. Due to the uncertain nature of litigation itself, you need a law firm on your side who knows the court system and knows how to pre-emptively address potential issues, as well as how to circumvent any unforeseen problems. Our experienced trial attorneys will take the time to thoroughly review your case so that we know every aspect of your case in order to bring about the best possible outcome. We understand the intrinsic substantive law and procedural law exclusive to Nevada, which is a direct benefit to our clients.


Civil Litigation requires specific knowledge and experience to navigate the complex procedures, paperwork, and interactions with other attorneys, parties, and the various court systems. Outcomes of cases depend on many different factors, including the ability to assess a case at its early stages and generate a personalized approach to resolving the matter efficiently. Our experienced civil litigation attorneys understand that litigation is a daunting and time-consuming process. At Handelin Law, we utilize our knowledge and experience in civil lawsuits to relieve the burden of litigation from the clients and explore the most beneficial options to resolve a case efficiently.


When one looks at the entire process of a civil lawsuit, the effort and time required can be intimidating, knowing that a civil trial may be years away. Handelin Law strives to connect with our clients and break down the various stages and anticipated costs of a lawsuit into understandable and affordable parts. The case is constantly reviewed and analyzed for strengths and weaknesses in order to pursue the best strategy for trial and get the best outcomes for our clients.

While each case is highly individualized and unique, every lawsuit goes through common stages: The Complaint, Answer, motion practice, discovery, including document requests and depositions, and ultimately, the trial. However, prior to going to trial, there are several opportunities to resolve the dispute. These can include negotiation and settlement, alternative dispute resolutions, such as mediation or arbitration, and other administrative remedies.
