Civil Litigation

Pursuing a case in civil court is often the only remedy available to someone who has been injured or suffered an injustice. If you or a loved one has been harmed by someone else’s wrongful conduct, you may be entitled to pursue a civil case against that person, their employer, or any other party involved in the misconduct. The Law Offices of Benjamin J. Cheeks handles a variety of civil litigation matters to protect the rights of injured and wronged individuals.

Depending on the situation, your attorney will want to interview witnesses, preserve documents related to your case, visit the scene of the accident, and file the appropriate lawsuit before the legal time limit (statute of limitations) runs out. Consulting with an attorney as soon as possible will help your attorney move your case efficiently though the legal system.

In both civil and criminal cases, the facts of the situation will greatly affect the outcome of the case. Speaking with an experienced attorney is the best way to determine how you should move forward to protect your rights or the rights of your loved ones. Mr. Cheeks offers free consultations to quickly access the merits of your case. Please call (619) 995-7828 to set up an appointment.

    As a member of the Louis M. Welsh Inn of Court and a former Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA), Benjamin is highly qualified and very knowledgeable in the field of criminal defense. His experience as an AUSA is truly invaluable because he has the unique perspective of a former prosecutor and can anticipate what legal moves the opposing party may attempt. Additionally, his many years of trying cases should give any prospective client great confidence in his trial skills and abilities in the courtroom. Unlike some attorneys, he won’t settle due to lack of experience or intimidation; he will go to trial and fight for your rights.
